17. Things that make for great spin don't necessarily make for workable court filings

The article tries hard to leave us with the impression that they must be in violation of the court order, but I don't think that we know that to be the case at all.

Note that the order is that detainees with green cards must be accessible by these lawyers. If there aren't any such detainees at Dulles then they don't have to be given access to any other detainees.

IIRC, it was announced yesterday that the executive order does not apply to legal residents and that dozens had been let through.

tRump, that's how. SammyWinstonJack Jan 2017 #1
