On January 27, 2017, President Donald Trump banned nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States for at least the next 90 days by executive order. The order bars all people from: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. The executive order also bans entry of refugees fleeing from war-torn Syria indefinitely.
II. Federal District Judge Blocks Executive Order
On January 28, 2017, United States Judge Ann M. Donnelly blocked part of President Donald Trump's controversial executive order, ruling that authorities could not deport individuals from the seven abovementioned Muslim-majority countries, who had arrived in US airports after the order had been issued.
Judge Donnelly held that the petitioners had a "strong likelihood of success" in establishing that their removal "violates their rights to Due Process and Equal Protection guaranteed by the United States Constitution."
