The New York Post: Federal judge temporarily halts airport deportations following travel ban

A Brooklyn federal judge took on President Trump Saturday night, staying deportations that could have immediately sent people from seven predominantly Muslim countries back to where they came from.

An estimated 100 to 200 people had been detained at airports around the country when their planes landed Friday and Saturday.

Judge Ann Donnelly’s order applies to all of them, not only to those arriving within her immediate jurisdiction at JFK Airport.

An emergency hearing on the matter ended dramatically when ACLU lawyer Lee Gelernt told Donnelly that at least one person at JFK was being put on a flight back to Syria at that moment.
