US District Judge Ann Donnelly ruled about the contestation of the ACLU civil rights group: “The petitioners have a strong likelihood of success in establishing that the removal of the petitioner and other similarly situated violates their due process and equal protection guaranteed by the United States Constitution.” The United States denied entry to 109 travelers heading to the country at the time the ruling was signed. However, the ruling does not necessarily mean the people being held at airports across the US are going to be released because it doesn’t immediately order that detained travelers to be released. Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, who argued the case, said the ruling “preserves the status quo and ensures that people who have been granted permission to be in this country are not illegally removed off U.S. soil.”
