A Federal Judge in the United States has issued a temporary halt to the deportation of visa holders or refugees stranded at airports after President Donald Trump issued an order barring entry to them for 90 days.
 
The American Civil Liberties Union filed a case in response to the order issued on Friday.
 
Trumps  executive order halted the entire US refugee programme and also instituted a 90-day travel ban for nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister of Britain, Theresa May has told her Foreign Secretary and Home Secretary to contact their US counterparts about a travel ban imposed by President Trump.
 
Boris Johnson is pressing Mr Trump's Advisers to exempt Britons with dual citizenship from the 90-day ban on visa holders from seven countries.
 
Earlier Mr. Johnson tweeted it was "divisive and wrong" to stigmatise people on the basis of nationality.
 
A petition to stop a state visit to the UK by President Trump later this year may be debated in parliament, after amassing more than 500, 000 signatures.
