持绿卡也被戴手铐搜身 肯尼迪机场爆发大规模抗议

【美国印象网纽约讯】1月28日,全美各大城市的国际机场发生抗议示威,反对川普总统签署的反移民政令。各大机场都有多名持有效签证或绿卡的入境受这项政令的影响而无法入境美国,有来自受影响国家的部分旅客目前滞留在第三国。

据悉,受这道行政命令影响的7个国家分别是伊朗、伊拉克、利比亚、索马里、苏丹、叙利亚和也门。按照川普政府的计划,美国未来90天将禁止这些国家的公民入境。这项政令同时将接收难民计划暂停120天,影响多国寻求庇护人员,来自叙利亚的难民更是暂停接收直到另行通知。

斯坦福大学人类学博士生苏丹学生艾拉明持美国绿卡,但昨天晚上抵达纽约甘迺迪机场时,因总统川普发布限制7个穆斯林国家人民入境美国的命令,她被搜身、短暂被戴上手铐。

39岁的艾拉明(Nisrin Elamin)在美国居住20多年,她说,27日晚抵达肯尼迪国际机场时,遭扣留约5小时。艾拉明说,她前往苏丹进行学术研究,27日上午搭机返美。在机场过境时,拿出她的美国绿卡,但接着却遭到讯问、搜身并戴上手铐。

路透社报导,艾拉明接受电话访问说:“那次搜身令人不舒服,他们碰触我的胸部和鼠蹊部。接着把我戴上手铐,我哭了起来。”

艾拉明说,手铐很快就被取下,当局似乎是用手铐在机场不同区域间押送人。艾拉明虽获释,但她担心再度离开美国,也担心在苏丹的父母,原本她希望有朝一日协助父母移民美国。现住新泽西州的艾拉明说:“这让我害怕,无法在想见他们时与他们会面。”

据媒体报导,川普的禁令28日导致飞抵甘迺迪机场的多名旅客遭羁押。机场外整天有数百人聚集抗议川普的行政命令,同时要求释放遭扣押的人。

Governor Baker’s Statement Regarding Trump’s Refugee and Immigration Executive Order

Boston, Jan. 29, 2017 – Today, Governor Charlie Baker issued the following statement regarding the Trump administration’s refugee and immigration order. Governor Baker and members of the Baker-Polito Administration are discussing the implications of Friday’s action with the academic community, the medical and research sectors and with representatives of Massachusetts residents potentially affected by the order.

“Massachusetts is a global community. We all benefit from the shared experiences of our partners from around the world. Our education, health care, business and public sector institutions rely on these relationships to deliver on their missions every single day.

“The federal government’s recent decision puts this at risk and I believe focusing on countries’ predominant religions will not make the country safer as terrorists have showed they intend to strike from across the world. The confusion for families is real. The unexpected disruption for law abiding people is real. And the lack of guidance associated with such an abrupt and overwhelming decision is hugely problematic for all involved.

“Thankfully, the federal courts will have an opportunity to straighten this out and it is my hope they do so, and do so quickly to clarify the status of those affected so that people who have done nothing but follow the rules can rest assured that they will be able to go on with their lives.”
