In response to President Trump's Executive Order banning entry into the United States by people from seven Muslim-majority countries, the ACLU of Oregon has joined with local attorneys to assist in the representation of anyone affected.
We are deeply relieved that, on Saturday evening, a federal judge stayed the removal of individuals with approved refugee applications, valid visas, and other individuals from the seven banned countries legally authorized to enter the United States. The stay means that people detained at airports may not be deported, but people may still be detained pending these proceedings.
