The Yemeni Ambassador to the United States has urged Yemenis residing in the United States to not leave the United States at the current time.
He also advised Yemenis who are trapped in US airports to contact the embassy, pointing out that a team was formed to follow up the cases of Yemenis trapped in US airports.
A federal judge in Brooklyn, New York issued an emergency stay Saturday night that temporarily blocks the U.S. government from sending people out of the country after they have landed at a U.S. airport with valid visas.
The order barred U.S. border agents from removing anyone who arrived in the U.S. with a valid visa from Iraq, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen.
