Judge's Ruling Against Trump Executive Order ONLY APPLIES TO THOSE ALREADY ON U.S. SOIL, as is true of Person Who Has ALREADY PASSED THROUGH CUSTOMS
The federal judge' ruling is of narrow scope - allowed the trapped immigrants who had passed through customs and a port of entry to leave the airport. The Syrians just sent home were not allowed through customs. It is my understanding that one is not considered "on American soil" until clearing the process. That passport has to be stamped. Their passports were not stamped and they were boarded onto the next available flight. It is like they were never here.
