Refugees detained at US airports after Trump's order

Refugees from seven Muslim-majority countries are being turned away at foreign airport and they are being detained if they're able to make it all the way to the United States. Bryan Llenas said, "Two Iraqi men were detained here at JFK airport as soon as they landed sometime last night. The ACLU and other refugee activist groups decided to file a federal lawsuit here...suing President Trump and the federal government for unconstitutionally detaining these two Iraqi men. 

 "One of the men...has been released from JFK...he was granted a special immigrant visa for his work as an interpreter, an engineer, and a contractor from 2003-2013 on behalf of the US military. The still being detained here at JFK. "One of the congressman here spoke to us and a bunch of other cameras. His name is Congressman Jerrold Nadler...he said there could be at least an additional ten others being held here at JFK." Nadler said, "We were told that they're being held even though they had valid visas...because of the President's executive order... They're waiting for guidance from Washington."
