[Update below] As he promised to do for his entire campaign, yesterday Donald Trump signed an executive order barring immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries (Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen) for 90 days. The executive order also barred the entry of refugees for 120 days, and indefinitely barred the entry of refugees from Syria. Today, reports are coming in that refugees are being detained at airports after landing, travelers from the listed countries are not being allowed to board flights to America and that the order even extends to people from the banned countries who already hold green cards.

The Times reports that two Iraqi refugees, Hameed Khalid Darweesh and Haider Sameer Abdulkhaleq Alshawi, are currently being detained at JFK Airport and unable to speak to their lawyers. Alshawi was supposed to meet his wife, who worked for a U.S. contractor, and 7-year-old son in Houston. Alshawi's wife told the Times, "I’m really breaking down, because I don’t know what to do. It’s not fair.” She told the paper Alshawi hadn't seen her son in three years.

Darweesh was an interpreter for the U.S. Army shortly after the invasion of Iraq, and also worked for the government as an engineer and contractor. His visa application, which was approved on January 20th, said that he was targeted in Iraq as a result of working with the American government.

Lawyers for both men hadn't been able to speak to their clients, on the other side of a security area in Terminal 4. When asked who they were supposed to call in order to protest the decision, a Customs officer reportedly responded "Mr. President. Call Mr. Trump.”

In Cairo, six migrants from Iraq and one from Yemen weren't allowed to board a Cairo Air flight to JFK, The Guardian reports. The travelers were taken to the airport by the U.N. refugee agency, but barred from the plane when they arrived. In addition, Gillian Christensen, the acting Department of Homeland Security spokesperson, told Reuters that the ban on immigrants from the listed countries also includes legal U.S. residents who already hold green cards. According to ProPublica, "almost 500,000 people from the seven countries have received green cards in the past decade, allowing them to live and work in the United States indefinitely."

[Update 1:27 p.m.] Representatives Jerry Nadler and Nydia Velazquez both showed up at Terminal 4 in an attempt to see Alshawi and Darweesh. At first, both were turned away, but they were eventually able to secure Darweesh's release.

Demonstrators have also been showing up to Terminal 4 in order to denounce the executive order and demand freedom for the remaining detainees. The total number of immigrants held at JFK is 12, according to CNN, who also reports that Iran has banned all Americans from entering the country as a response to Trump's executive order.

City Councilmember Stephen Levin blasted the Trump executive order in a press release, writing "By allowing xenophobia and Islamophobia to take root, we threaten our standing in the world. Instead of safety, this administration's actions bring shame. These are not values welcome in our City, much less our nation."

Additional demonstrations at the airport are planned for the rest of the day.
