A Federal Court judge has granted an emergency stay to allow people who landed in the US with valid visas to temporarily remain in the country.

As many as 200 people had been detained, despite having valid visas, after US President Donald Trump signed an executive order temporarily banning refugees and people from seven mainly Muslim countries from entering the US.

US human rights groups, including American Civil Liberties, immediately filed a suit against the detention of those people.

The group believes between 100 and 200 people have been detained at US airports or in transit.
