u.s. east coast welcome to our viewers here in the united states and around the world. following the breaking news here on cnn. i'm george howell. >> the court granted an emergency stay for citizens of seven muslim majority countries who have arrived in the u.s. and have valid visas. >> the state covers those in transit. they means they will not be deported immediately. the ruling came after a day of protests at airports across the country. >> a u.s. homeland security official says in the roughly 24 hours between the executive order being sign and the court ruling, the u.s. had denied entry 173 travelers. >> this statement saying quote,
the rule preserves the status quo and ensures that people who have been granted permission in the country are not illegalliry moved. people across the states were quick to protest the travel band. >> major airport the across the country including stan and new york. >> this has been the protests, protests blocking the gate saying no one gets in until they get out. protesters are blocked the exit. having some of the protesters block their way. police though have tried to stay ahead of the game as these hundreds of protesters have occupied the airport. they opened up a side entrance
to the bidding. that's how they were trying to let arriving passengers out. but the protesters figured that out. police also trying toe open up a check point behind where these protesters are standing here. they were carefully shut ling people through but protesters form lines blocking the travelers from getting through. these protesters have vowed to stay here throw the night, george. >> a lot of people there and a busy part of that airport that i know well. the protests, have they remained peaceful? >> reporter: as far as we can tell they have remained peaceful. we've seen pushing and shoving between arriving passengers and people trying to leave the airport trying to get to their flight as well as officer. for the most part the police have remained cool, calm and collected as the protesters push
up against them. but the police telling me tonight they have no arrested. as far as we know it has remained peaceful. >> that was gabe cohen in seattle. and you know, the protests in seattle, we've seen the same in new york and san francisco. and there's an expectation there may be more protests today >> we're expecting a few more in the coming hours. >> we're getting clarification of what will happen to those covered by the emergency stay. one of the drafters is telling cnn this. the judge's order that those with a lawful visa or green card not be removed from the u.s. it didn't immediately order that they be released from detention. the department of homeland security has looked over the recent rulings saying this. quote, it will comply with with judicial orders, faithly enforce the immigration laws and implement the president's
executive orders to be sure that those entering the united states does not pose a threat to our country. this affected less than 1% of the international air travelers who arrived in the united states. we're joined now by jonathan turley, law professor at george washington university. i want to look at the legal side of this with you and examine where this may or may not conflict with american law and the american contusion. what do you think? >> well, first of all, the judge likely issued the stay because people were going to be put in an irreparable situation where they would be sent home. so often judges will freeze the action of a case, say, all right, stop, let's take a look at this before anyone has anything done to them that won't be easy to reverse. the stay has to be considered separately from the merits in the sense. >> so essentially that means they decided to put the whole
situation regarding immigrants and refugees on pause until such time they could rule on the merits of the case? is that what you're saying? >> right. the aclu is going to have to establish that they're likely to prevail upon the merits. that's a tough standard. what president trump is using here is historic power by the presidents. and unfortunately our history is replete with immigration laws that have singled out particular countries or groups. these are not likely the proudest moments in our history. it's ironic today being the chinese new year, many of them deal with the exclusion of chinese individuals in our country. those laws were upheld, those actions by presidents were allowed. even president obama just last year argued to the supreme court
that courts should not be second-guessing a president's decision, decisions on immigration and national security. it will be a tough call to make for a court to reverse a president who is saying for national security reasons i want to halt any immigration or entry from these countries. now president trump has made this a little more difficult for his lawyers by giving an interview saying that he wants to give priority or some type of favoritism towards christians who have been discriminated against. that's going to add an argument for the aclu. but overall, presidents have been granted pretty wide authority in determining who can cross the border. >> on the grounds, if i follow you, that it's an issue of security, correct? >> it is. and courts generally don't second-guess a president's decision in that regard.
i happen to think that the executive order is a terrible move and it does contradict the values of our country. but that's spate from a court from a legal request of whether the president can do that. this stay reminds everyone that we're not a one branch system. there are two other branchs that can be heard on issues of this kind. >> let's run you through the details of the executive order that was signed on friday. it to bids people from seven countries from entering the u.s. for three months. those countries are all predominantly muslim. you see them there on the map. >> the order suspends the u.s. refugee admissions program for 120 days until so-called extreme vetting procedures are put in place. syrian rough geese are barred indefinitely. people holding certain visas
will have to undergo in-person interviews in order to renew nene them. the average refugee application takes 18 to 24 months to process. the syrian a aptplications can take longer. the applications are screened by several government agencies, the state department, the fbi and the department of homeland security. homeland security conducts a detailed analysis and then buy graphic security checks are carried out. 12,000 syrian refugee were admit to the united states in 2016. let's get the view from the middle east, in particular from turkey. let's bring in ben wedeman. >> joining us from the airport in istanbul turkey. have you seen aerp heard stories of people who have been denied
entry into the united states? >> reporter: actually here outside the main entrance to the airport we have not run into anybody turned back. our producer did speak with a member of the company that deals with flights to the united states. and he told us since yesterday around 80 people have been stopped from boarding flights to the united states. there are seven flight to the u.s. from istanbul today. 90% of theme were in transit and told they could not board the flight. this same member of the security company told our producer i can't believe what we're doing but we have to carry out our instructions. now the turkish government hasn't officially commented on the ban from this executive order. but we did see a tweet from the deputy prime minister, ma chem
chick who said refugees are welcomed in turkey. there are about 2.8 million registered syrian refugees in turkey. he went on to say we'd happily welcome global talent not allowed back in the united states. which reminds me of a bit of history. at the time of the expulsion of the jews from spain in the 1400s, the turkish sol tan welcomed jews to the empire because he said they were a good south of talent. we have a little bit of history repeating itself. >> ben, i want to ask you something. as you pointed out, turkey has had little choice other than to welcome 3 million syrian refugees. now the u.s. is barring syrian refugees from entering american soil indefinitely. how do you think that's going
make people in turkey feel. you told us about the government. i'm thinking of the man on the street. >> reporter: turks are of two minds when it comes to the massive influx of syrian refugees. the government has spent billions of dollars to provide food, shelter and education to the syrian refugees. but of course there is a concern that the presence of so many syrians has been somewhat disruptive to the security of the country. but by and large, the government here is standing by its position that as a fellow muslim country, a neighbor to syria, it is mornlly obliged to helped the people of syria and many turks seem to be generally supportive of that position. cyril? >> ben wedeman in turkey. thank you very much.
earlier on saturday the u.s. president responded to the controversy. that us with before the stay was granted. >> he stood behind his executive order saying it is already successful. >> it's not a muslim band but we're totally prepared. it's working out nicely. you see it at the airport ens and all over. it's working out nicely. we're going to have a very very strict ban and we're going to be extreme vetting which we should have had in this country for many years. >> it is important to point out we're getting reaction from around the world. millions of people, people who are protesting, people who are against the travel ban. but in the united states there are millions of people who supported president trump. people who believe this was the right move. >> earlier we spoke to cnn political commentator jeffrey lord who has been a trump supporter and supports the trachl ban. >> president trump deserves the profile of courage award for standing up doing this.
he's going to get tremendous amount of criticism. but i assure you, i can totally tell you this. if in fact one somebody came in through one of the refugee situations and wound up killing americans, you would see things in the media saying he was inkomi incompetent and paid no attention. that's the way human life is. bravo to him for taking all of this flack. >> we continue to look at worldwide reaction over the travel ban. just one day after meeting with the president in washington, the british prime minister is not pleased with president trump. >> her statement reads immigration is a matter for the government of the united states just the same as this immigration system should be set by our government. but we do not agree with this kind f approach and it is not one that we will be taking. wear studying this new executive
order to see what it means and what the legal effects are. and in particular what the consequences are for uk nationals if there is any impact on uk nationalsly then clearly we'll make representations to the u.s. government about that. and mr. trump's rival in last year's presidential race is speaking out. hillary clinton tweeting this, i stand with the people gathered across the country tonight defending our values and constitution. this is not who we are. >> australia, the president there says that donald trump will honor the refugee settlement deal to the two countries that was agreed to last year. the topic was discussed between a phone call on saturday. >> hundreds of asylum seekers will be moved to the united states. mr. trump says it's a agreement
and will not be repeated. we examine how president trump's travel ban is impacting syrian refugees in the middle east. we're live next from jordan. stay with us. which is such a dad thing to do. after he gave his name the woman from capital one said "mr. garner, are you related to jennifer?" kind of joking with him. and my dad was so proud to tell her, "as a matter of fact, she is my middle daughter". so now dad has the venture card, he's earning his double miles, and he made a friend at the company. can i say it? go ahead! what's in your wallet? nice job dad.

protest the ban. the executive order bans people from seven muslim areas from entering the united states. >> a federal judge granted an emergency stay ruling that citizens who have already arrived in the u.s. and those in transit and held valid visas could enter the country. president trump's decision to deny refugees into the u.s. is being felt across the world. >> the travel ban will stop terrorism but the head of one humanitarian group beg to different. i spoke earlier with world relief president. working with churches here in the u.s. to resettle refugees. >> the american people very rightly look at the flow of refugees going into europe. it's an unregulated flow, they don't know who's going in and they would rightly say that's a security that we don't want. but no refugee comes to the
united states because they chose to come. they only come if the state department chooses them, vets them for 18 to 24 months, goes through screening from the fbi, homeland security, biometric screenings, multiple interviews, only then are they allowed into the country. and the cato institute just did a study on the danger posed by refugees and concluded that the likelihood of you or i as american citizens being harmed by a refugee were 1 in 3 of 6.5 billion. that's the likelihood that we would win the lottery and get struck by lightning in the same day. for more on the impact, our correspondent joins us from amman. what's the impact not just in jordan but across the region. >> reporter: i think there's a lot of shock here and uncertainty, of course, while,
you know, these seven countries are impacted now. when you talk to people even here in jordan, not impacted by the ban, it's the concern that the administration is unpredictable. the decisions seem to be happening so fast that people are concerned this could be the debin i beginning. for example, you have so many students from the arab and the muslim world study in the united states, including some jordanian students. and there is a fear that if they leave america on holiday, they come back to their home countries, they might not be allowed back in all of the sudden. so there is that concern and there's that fear. there's also the feeling of seeing this as an insult. we're hearing this coming from different officials in iraq. there's been no official comment about this just yet from iraq but we're hearing certain calls
by different members of parliament, different officials according to some reports calling for reciprocal treatment here where americans would be banned from entering the u.s. this is seen as an insult where you have millions of people who have just been brandeds as a terrorist threat to the united states. and when you look at for example countries like iraq, these are countries that face that same threat of terrorism on a daily base, where people there feel that they are at the forefront of the fight against global terrorism and they're fighting it in their own countriecountri. really mixed feelings at this point but mostly real uncertainty in this region about what comes next. >> just drawing on your own experience reporting in the region, yourself, benwedeman, help our viewers in the u.s. and around the world to understand many of these people as have been reported by yourself, by
ben, have helped the united states in conflict zones, have offered intelligence in some cases. >> of course. if you look at, for example, iraq. there's so many people there, george, who have applied for resettlement in the united states. not because they want to. it's not an easy decision. you know, we spent time talking to people there who tell you it is probably the hardest decision they've ever had to make about packing up their life and starting a new life in a whole different culture and country. so many people feel they were forced to do this because of what they did. thousands of iraqis who worked alongside the united states, whether they worked for private companies or media companies or the thousands of worked as interpreter alongside the u.s. troops. these are the citizens who feel under threat. so many of them have been targeted, spefg death threats and their families are in danger
because of their association with america. they're branded as traitors and collaborator collaborators. you look at the situation now, you have the threat from groups like isis and shia militias who would see them as collaborators. you have the people who have been forced to try to leave iraq too go to the united states for example. they have felt abandoned over the past few years. we have so many who have spent years waiting for admission into the united states and now they don't know if they will ever make it to the u.s. and they feel they've sacrificed so much for this country. >> thank you for the reporting. >> and as we've been saying throughout this newscast, the u.s. refugee travel ban has left several people in limbo. we spoke with one yazidi woman
who was ready to board the plane and was told she would not be allowed on the train. >> ythey barely escaped. for them that was the end of any notion that they could build a future in iraq. this is not her real name but she's afraid that by speaking out she might ruin whatever chance remains to reach the united states, despite it being the land of free speech. >> translator: my dream was to go to america because it's the strongest country in the world. we feel that it's safe. it's the safest country. it has the strongest human rights. >> and this is the protection of the nation from foreign terrorists. >> but with one signature, that vision of america shattered. her husband worked as a
translator for the u.s. military for years and applied for asylum under the separate immigrant visa program. it was granted and he arrived in america last year. on sunday she was headed to see him. >> i was about the get on the plane and they called my name. they said you can't board, you can't travel. i was shocked. i cried why me. >> she was given this document from the homeland security at the airport that basically says why she can put in an ar inquirs to why she was not allowed on the plane. she and the others are in a state of limbo she is hardly on her own. the temporary travel ban on seven muslim majority nation to the u.s. have left countless people reeling, wondering how it
is that the new leader of the so-call free world can have so little compassion for their suffering. >> translator: my brain isn't working. i'm in shock. if i think of something i start to cry. i'm not crying because i'm weak but because i had small dreams and i thought if i went to america they would benefit from my small dreams and i could make them come true there and i could be safe. >> what's your message right now to president trump? >> translator: my message is that we don't hate president trump, we don't hate anyone. we love the american people. have mercy. we don't have mercy in our country. >> but mercy even for those that have suffered the most does not seem to be on trump's america first agenda. era damon, cnn, erbil, iraq. the breaking news coverage continues. more than a million refugees an
migrants have flokd to germany in the last year and a half. >> we're heading to berlin next. plus, donald trump phons several national leaders including vladimir putin. >> details on that clfrgs a conversations. this is cnn breaking news. pepto! ah. ♪nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea!♪ pain from a headache can when make this...old, feel like this. all-in-one cold symptom relief from tylenol®, the #1 doctor recommended pain relief brand. tylenol®
a fred federal judge granted an emergency stay from seven muzly countries. those who have a valid visa or in transit will not be stopped. >> demonstrations are planned in washington, d.c., in atlanta, georgia, chicago, illinois and various other cities. protesters say the ban is un-american and is putting some people in danger if they are forced to return to their home countries. >> and the responses are coming in quickly to the president's travel ban. iran calls the ban an insult saying it's considering what action to take. also several colleges and universities in the sus has sent advisory e-mails to students and the faculty. >> aside from the backlash to the ban, the u.s. president has been reaching out to several major world leaders, including the president of russia, vladimir putin. you see him there talking to the
rush shan shan president. it's the first phone call between the two since the inauguration. they spoke about strengthening relations and agreed to coordinate efforts in syria. >> more protests are planned to start across the u.s. in just a couple of hours. hundreds of protesters were out in a number of airports in the u.s. on saturday. >> cheryl connor with our affiliate wjla has more. >> reporter: travelers at dulles international airport with getting an unexpected welcome home. >> love, not hate, that's what makes america great. >> reporter: people rolling suitcases looked at signs showing support for refugees and all nationalitienationalities. >> i have a friend who cannot have her family come for her wedding. >> reporter: a woman from iran says he's a legal resident here

jet engine filled the airport all night. >> julian rjoins us from syria. immigration and security are huge issues in europe given the number of aie lum seekers who came in. what's the take likely to be on the executive orders and the new refugee and immigration policy in the u.s. what's the reaction going to be in germany? >> the reaction in the media will be strong criticism against that executive order. but if you ask more average people, i would predict that it's likely to find at least some support. what is or appears behind this executive order, the vetting process, is something that has come under huge criticism, also in germany. many people here now say that
the vetting was not done right, that the government has no idea who actually entered the country and that this process has to be renewed and that we have to come up with a whole new process. so i would predict a split reaction to this. you will see strong criticism in the policy circles and the media. but when you ask average people with the question of who is coming into the country and do we knee who is coming into the country, especially with the couple of terrorists attacks in the past months, one that killed 12 people if berlin. there will be different reaction to that executive order. >> you seem to be describing a big split between authorities and the man on the street as to how they react to this. >> absolutely. i think that is very similar to what we're seeing in the united states. there is some sort of division. there is a certain part of
society that very much agrees that agree with the poll scie p that really renewed the country. gave a new standing to germany. but there's a lot of concern among many people because it's obvious that the government has no idea who is coming into the country and what do we know about those people, for example, the terrorists that previously attacked in berlin used 14 different identities, no one really knew who he was, no one really knew where he was staying. and that obviously is of a lot of concern of average people. >> and that was the editor of chief of the daily. president trump has another becau busy day on sunday. he's going to speak with saudi
arabia's king and the crown pounce of the united emirates. >> he spoke with the president of russia, vladimir putin on saturday. >> we're joined from ivan watson live from moscow. you've told us the phone between the two countries is really changing. i'd like for you to address the fact that there's the elephant in the room here, which is the sanctions. >> reporter: that's right. the tone did dramatically change if you consider the outgoing days of the obama administration earlier this month, where one of the decisions was made to expel 35 russian dip mates from the u.s. amid allegations of hacking and then a few weeks later you have this new president, donald trump having an hour long discussion with the russian president. and the white house saying this is was a significant step in improving the relationship between the united states and russia that is need of repair.
the kremlin going further to say that the two leaders talk about a partnership in cooperation in the fight against terrorism, cooperate in the middle east, the arab israeli peace, and also saying that the two leaders agreed to quote stabilize and develop russia-u.s. cooperation on a construct tiff equitable and mutually be lly beneficial . no formal decisions came out of that. but certainly a dramatic change in relations between two leaders of two countries where just a few weeks ago the situation was much much more fraught, much more strained between the two capitals. >> the u.s. president has indicated it's too soon to talk about lifting sanctions. in fact the sanctions we understand will remain in place for now. but the president's desire to
create this closer relationship between the united states and between russia, it's meet with a great deal of skepticism by many of president trump's republican counter parts, by me democrats in the house and senate, even members of the president's cabinet see it differently. how is the divide between president trump and his many critics, how is that viewed there in russia? >> reporter: you know, there's a very outspoken russian lawmaker, and he sent out a number of tweets today saying that capitals like kiev, warsaw, os lo, stockholm and nato, they're her fied by this. he's calling out the governments that have been very critical of russian policies with particularly in eastern europe and with the annexation of crimea from ukraine.
arguing this is the beginning of a change. there is certainly anxiety in many of those countries about what a day taunt could bring to them when they perceive a threat coming from the kremlin to their borders and to their sovereignty. the trump administration, trump himself on friday said it was too early to start talking about lifting sanctions. and he does face serious opposition from senior lawmakers within his own party if he is to try to move forward with that measure. it is perhaps too early to say. but again we do appear to be en route for a new period of apparently cooperation between moscow and washington, which is a dramatic change amid many changes that we've seen since president trump took office. >> there have been many attempts
to reset the relations between these two super powers. the question now, will this be different. ivan watson live for us in the russian capital. still ahead, french voters go to the polls to pick the country's socialist presidential candidate. we'll have that ahead. plus a syrian refugee has made a new life for him in the u.s. but he might not have been able to do it without twitter. we'll explain when we come back. be the you who shows up in that dress. who hugs a friend. who is done with treatments that don't give you clearer skin. be the you who controls your psoriasis with stelara® just 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections and cancer. some serious infections require hospitalization. before treatment, get tested for tuberculosis. before starting stelara® tell your doctor if you think you have an infection or have symptoms such as: fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough. always tell your doctor if you have any signs of infection, have had cancer, if you develop any new skin growths
