Detroit Judge Halts Deportation of 1,400 Iraqis

HeadlineJul 25, 2017

Back in the United States, in Michigan, federal Judge Mark Goldsmith has halted the deportation of more than 1,400 Iraqis, ruling the immigrants could face torture or death if returned to Iraq. The ruling gives the immigrants more time to try to convince courts to overturn their deportation orders. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, known as ICE, has rounded up hundreds of Iraqi immigrants in Michigan in recent months, after U.S. and Iraq reached a new agreement that allows the U.S. to deport Iraqis even if they don’t have valid Iraqi travel documents.
