A US judge issued a temporary halt to the deportation of visa holders or refugees stranded at airports.

The Judges move comes following Trump executive order while the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a case in response to the order issued on Friday.

Thousands have been protesting at US airports over Mr Trump’s clampdown on immigration.

Trump’s 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.
