NAT109 - (US-Trump-Refugees) (FOR PRODUCTION) (NOT FOR ONLINE USE) NEW YORK. x-13s. An Iraqi who was detained overnight at a New York City airport has called America "the land of freedom" after being released from custody. Hameed Khalid Darweesh was temporarily detained because of U-S President Donald Trump's ban on refugees from certain Muslim nations. He worked as an interpreter for the U-S Army when it invaded Iraq in 2003. He was granted permission to relocate to the U-S but was detained along with another traveller from Iraq after arriving at Kennedy Airport in New York. Lawyers petitioned a U-S federal court earlier today to let them both go. Here's the sound of protesters at J-F-K airport chanting in support of detained refugees. (fades) (SOURCE:ABC)
