Administration: Nearly 750 people subjected to travel ban after court order
by Jordan Fabian
The federal government said Thursday that 746 people were "detained or processed" during the 27-hour period after a federal judge blocked enforcement of part of President Trump's travel ban.
The Justice Department on Thursday turned over a list of the names to a group of civil rights attorneys representing plaintiffs suing the Trump administration over the policy.
The lawyers agreed not to make the names public, but a cover letter from the Justice Department obtained by The Hill says "the list includes legal permanent residents."
The list of names turned over to lawyers also includes travelers with approved refugee applications, valid visa holders and travelers from the seven countries included in the ban who were authorized to enter the U.S.
