Donald Trump’s executive order banning travel to the US from seven majority-Muslim countries is in tatters after the American Civil Liberties Union won a class action lawsuit after two Iraqis were detained at JFK airport in New York.
The pair, with links to the US military, were legally allowed to enter America, but were detained by customs officials at JFK.
Hameed Khalid Darweesh, one of those held spoke after he was released: “I support the US government on the other side of the world. But when I came here, they said no. And they treated me as if I broke the law, or did something wrong and I’m surprised, really. really, surprised.”
