It's On: Federal judge grants stay for those detained under Trump’s travel ban

It didn't take long for a Federal judge to step up and gum up the works.
  It was as predictable as the Sun rising in the East.  But, this is only the beginning of the battle between President Trump and Leftists who don't care about making America safe. 

NY Post reports a federal judge in Brooklyn ordered a stop to the Trump administration’s deportations of hundreds of travelers who arrived in the US on Friday and Saturday from seven predominately Muslim countries.

Judge Ann Donnelly on Saturday night granted a request from the American Civil Liberties Union to stop deportations of those who were on their way to the US as Trump’s order took effect.
The 100 to 200 detainees, including at least 10 at Kennedy Airport, will not be released immediately. But for now, they also will not be sent back to where they came from.

Donnelly issued her order after ACLU lawyer Lee Gelernt stated that at least one person at JFK was being put on a flight back to Syria as the hearing commenced.
