KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 1 (MySinchew) -- Since US President Donald Trump announced the immigration ban for travelers from seven Islamic countries, 71 were detained Tuesday at New York's JFK International Airport, among them a Malaysian.

It has been reported that the detainees had been flying into the United States from countries on Trump's ban list.

However, it is not certain whether the "Malaysian passenger" is in possession of a Malaysian passport.
