Trump Ordered By Federal Judge To Give List Of Names Detained Due To Muslim Travel Ban
A federal judge in New York ordered the Trump administration to produce a list of all persons detained as part of the executive order that limited travel and immigration from seven countries as well as temporarily shut down the refugee program.
Brooklyn federal judge Carol Bagley Amon delivered the order Tuesday, asking for the names of people held for questioning or processed from Jan. 28 at 9:37 pm — when another Brooklyn judge halted part of the ban that allowed for deportations — until Jan. 29 at 11:59 pm.
The government has until Feb. 23 to produce the list in the New York case.
The order was delivered as a part of a case filed by two Iraqi nationals who were detained at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. The restraining order issued in Brooklyn on Jan. 28 expired Tuesday.
