Liberal butthurt ensues.
One of the people temporarily detained at JFK airport by Trump’s Executive Order was a fellow named Hameed Khalid Darweesh, who had worked as an interpreter on behalf of the United States government in Iraq.

Never try to organize a photo op before asking a few specific questions.
