Feeling Rebloggy

The federal court for the Eastern District of New York has reportedly issued an emergency stay temporarily halting the removal of individuals detained after President Trump's order banned immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S.
The court ruled on a habeas corpus petition filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of two Iraqi men who were detained at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Friday after Trump's ban, The Verge reported Saturday night.

update
President Obama stacked those lower courts as best he could for years. I'm not sure this was one of them. But this is going to come into play again and again. He knew the republicans refusing to seat his Supreme Court Justice wasn't the only way to maneuver.

U.S. District Court Judge Ann Donnelly ruled in favor of a habeas corpus petition filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on behalf of two Iraqi men who were detained at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Friday after Trump signed his order.
 Donnelly, who was nominated by former President Barack Obama and confirmed to her judgeship in 2015, ruled in the Eastern District of New York that "there is imminent danger that, absent the stay of removal, there will be substantial and irreparable injury to refugees, visa-holders, and other individuals from nations subject" to Trump's order.
