Federal judge stays deportations of detainees after challenge to Trump order

trump ban lifted by courtJudge Ann Donnelly of the U.S. District Court in Brooklyn granted a request from the ACLU to stay deportations of those detained on entry to the United States following President Donald Trump's executive order.

Emmett Till Murder Trial Witness: I Lied

Emmett TillOn a steamy hot September day in 1955, in a racially segregated courtroom in Sumner, Mississippi, two white men, J.W. Milam and his half-brother Roy Bryant—a country-store owner—were acquitted of the murder of a 14-year-old black Chicago boy. His name was Emmett Till.

And in August of that year, while visiting a Deep South that he didn’t understand, Till had entered a store to buy two cents worth of bubble gum. Shortly after exiting, he likely whistled at Bryant’s 21-year-old wife, Carolyn. Enraged, Bryant and Milam took matters into their own hands. They would later admit to local authorities that they’d abducted Till three nights later. And when they finished with him, his body was so hideously disfigured from having been bludgeoned and shot that its horrifying depiction—in a photo in Jet magazine—would help to propel the American civil rights movement.

The three-page order would reportedly revoke a series of Obama administration executive orders that closed the sites, granted Red Cross access to all detainees and limited interrogators to techniques approved in the Army Field Manual.

Judge Royce LamberthA judge has bluntly rejected the Obama administration's effort to avoid giving the court an unabridged copy of the Senate report on CIA war-on-terror interrogation tactics—a compendium better known as the "torture report."

In late December, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth granted a request from lawyers for Guantanamo prisoner and alleged Al Qaeda mastermind Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri to have the highly-classified report preserved in court files.
