The New York Post: 12 detained at New York airport under refugee ban

Twelve refugees — including two Iraqis in “grave danger” because of their ties to the U.S. military — were detained at Kennedy Airport on Saturday, hours after President Trump signed an order restricting immigration from seven predominately Muslim countries.

One of the Iraqis, Hameed Jhalid Darweesh, 53, was released by midday Saturday. “I suffered to move here, to get my family here …. I can’t go back,” Darweesh said shortly after his release. Asked if he’d be killed in Iraq, he answered: “Yes, yes.”

Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan) and Nydia Velazquez (D-Brooklyn) announced the number of refugees held at the airport.
