A US court has intervened over President Trump’s immigration ban, as protests are held across the US.
A judge has ordered a temporary halt to the deportation of people affected by what critics are calling a “Muslim Ban”.
Crowds gathered at airports across America, including Washington state governor Jay Inslee at his local airport. – angry at a block on refugees and visitors from Syria, Iraq, Iran and three other Muslim-majority nations entering the country.

He says the order is “working very nicely” will keep out radical Islamic terrorists.
