1400 Iraqi Christians Saved From Certain Death At The Hands Of Islamic Terrorists After US Federal Judge Blocks Deportation Order

Last year, President Trump’s series of deportation orders affected thousands of Christians living in the USA, with many of those affected being refugees from Islamic violence in their native lands. In Detroit, 1400 Christians were arrested and threatened with being forcibly repatriated to Iraq.

Thanks to a Federal judge not only has the deportation order been stopped, but the Federal Government has been ordered to give them a bond hearing, and if they do not receive one by February 2nd, they will be ordered to be released according to a report:

A U.S. district judge in Detroit ruled on Tuesday against part of President Donald Trump’s deportations initiative by stating that hundreds of Iraqi nationals, many of them Christians, that were detained earlier this year must either be released, or granted bond hearings.

“Our legal tradition rejects warehousing human beings while their legal rights are being determined, without an opportunity to persuade a judge that the norm of monitored freedom should be followed,” U.S. District Judge Mark Goldsmith said, according to The Associated Press.

Authorities must release detainees who do not get a bond hearing by February 2, unless they pose a public safety risk, the judge ruled.

Back in July, Goldsmith halted deportation orders for as many as 1,400 Iraqis in America, some with past criminal convictions, arguing that their lives are at stake if they are sent back home.

“Without a stay in place, deportations will begin immediately, which may mean a death sentence for some deportees,” the court found at the time.

Trump’s administration has been attempting to deport Iraqis in a move to tighten immigration and security in the U.S., Reuters pointed out, with the Iraqi government agreeing in March to repatriate its nationals.

Goldsmith said on Tuesday that there is no “no written agreement” with Iraq regarding such cooperation, however, and said that the conditions under which the nationals would be sent back are also yet to be made clear.

Civil rights groups representing the detainess praised the latest decision.

“(Goldsmith) just really reaffirmed the principle that indefinite detention in this country is not acceptable,” said Kary Moss, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan.

Chaldean Christian activists and families cried out earlier this year against the arrests in Detroit and across the country of members of their community.

“We can’t say these people went through genocide and send them back to be victimized again! We hope and pray that the issue gets resolved,” Pastor Jalil Dawood, the president of World Refugee Care, who fled Iraq as a refugee during the war with Iran in 1982, told The Christian Post back then.

“America should never deport Christians to Iraq because they will be in trouble in Iraq as over a million left Iraq since 2003, and this will cause great hardship to their loved ones here,” also bringing “harm to them physically, mentally, and spiritually if they [are] ever sent back,” Dawood added.

Many evangelical groups, including Trump’s own evangelical advisory board, have urged the administration not to deport the Iraqis.

Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., who is a Chaldean Catholic of Assyrian and Armenian heritage, pointed out that Chaldeans “have been targeted by ISIS and subjected to genocide, as have other religious minorities. Their deportation represents a death sentence should they be deported to Iraq or Syria.”

“It has also been reported that the individuals have criminal records. If the offenses they committed have already been ‘paid for’ by serving an appropriate sentence, facing a death sentence via deportation is disproportionate and unjust,” she added. (source)

    This is part of the legal system that does work. The government did their job and the court did theirs. Now the government has to either follow the court or prove the they are no different than past administration.

      …sensible justice indeed.

    There is usually more to the story than what is reported. I do hope they get to stay. I wonder what the crimes were, and why they committed them.

  • filomena seiffert

    It is good that the judge is not going to obey orders of an insane, rude, psychopath president. The country is run by a schizophrenic, demented man. He is altistic look like, can not receive information and his attention spun does not last a minute.

      Trump! Trump! Trump!

    Only Muslims should be deported, not Christians who would face certain death.

  • pan nat

    I do not believe they are Christians, they are lying
    Muslims. These people need deported.

  • Deplorable Trump Voter

    You could have Globalist Clinton for President or Globalist Jeb Bush. Who do you think put that usurper Obama in office? The Bush crime family they are running around with him now. They all voted for Hildabeast Clinton. She would have finished off what was there rest of America. What you fail to mention is that our President has let more Christians than Muslims? He is not superman he is a man who both parties hate and he is arresting all of the three crime families donors. Refugee resettlement watch has the numbers.

    To provoc, to invade, to murder is rational? why bring Obama into it I have not mentioned his name or defended him. Your mind is murderous as is the mind of your leader.

  • filomena seiffert

    Oh yes, bombing the Syrian arm and protecting and training ISIS in USA base makes him a hero. He is part time president and spend millions of the tax payers money to travel US 1 to mar del lago and take care of his private business. You are an idiot, or stupid or blind. I am jus appalled how you get to transform a hard sinner that refuse to ask forgiveness to God, start the murdering of Palestinians and some are Christians, FYI, living a squalid life because trumpest boss is a murder also.
