The ACLU had filed a habeas corpus petition in federal court for the Eastern District of New York on behalf of Hameed Khalid Darweesh and Sameer Abdulkhaleq Alshawi, two Iraqi citizens who were detained at JFK airport in New York City earlier today.

In Charlotte, Marsha Hirsch, director of the Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency, told the Observer that she met Saturday with Imam Atif Chaudry, head clergyman for the Islamic Society of Greater Charlotte, to talk about finding housing and other assistance for Darweesh and his family in Charlotte. "A lot of US soldiers owe their lives to him".
"They're being persecuted", he said. She said several hundred more people who were booked on USA -bound flights in the next week were now stranded around the globe.
This is the kind of person The Donald wants to keep out of the country. He said friends and neighbors know about this work, and they would be in danger if they returned to Iraq. The Special Immigrant Visa programme stopped accepting applications in 2014 but the Direct Access Programme for US-Affiliated Iraqis was continuing - until Friday.
ONE WEEK after his inauguration, Donald Trump received a lesson in the ways of American democracy.
Mr Darweesh had worked as an interpreter for the US Army when it invaded Iraq in 2003 and later worked as a contract engineer.
She was expecting to welcome a Syrian family to Charlotte Monday night.
