Report: Federal Judge Issues Emergency Stay For Those Affected By Trump’s Ban

The temporary stay will allow those with a valid US visa to remain in the country.

A Brooklyn judge issued an emergency national stay for those that have been affected by Trump's "Muslim ban" Saturday evening. The emergency stay is temporary, which means a court will have to make a permanent decision at a later date, and the stay only applies to those who have already arrived in the country. However, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) estimates that 100 to 200 people will be able to remain in the country tonight because of the decision.

The news of the stay was first announced on Twitter by Dale Ho, the director of the ACLU Voting Rights Project Friday night around 9 p.m. EST. Two ACLU lawyers brought on the lawsuit on behalf of two Iraqi refugees that were detained at the airport, both of whom have been released.
