BOSTON (WHDH) - A federal judge granted a temporary stay for detainees affected by President Trump’s executive order on immigration.
The stay halts part of President Donald Trump’s executive order, but it is only temporary.
Many people were outraged over the ban on refugees from seven Muslim nations and gathered at Logan Airport. Protesters also gathered in other areas, from New York to Colorado.
After hours of being held at customs Hahmed Bay was released to greet his family at Logan Airport.
Bay was returning from visiting his sick father in Iran.
Bay and his wife, Bahar Bahmani, are from Iran and have Green Cards.
They’ve lived in Boston for eight years, and their 3-year-old daughter was born in America.
“He was away for a month. We were there too. All three of us went. We came back two weeks earlier,” said Bahmani.
Soon after Bay was released, Senator Elizabeth Warren greeted him and the demonstrators while taking aim at Trump.
