Hameed Darweesh says he likes Trump, but lawyers for two Iraqis with ties to the US military who had been granted visas to enter the United States have filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump and the US government after they were detained when they arrived in New York Friday.
Demonstrators held homemade signs that read “No ban, no wall” and “Refugees welcome” in front of JFK Airport Terminal 4’s international arrivals area Saturday afternoon.
Rep. Nydia Velazquez condemned the detainment of two “heavily vetted” Iraqi refugees at JFK Airport, calling the action “an affront to American values.”
