A federal judge in Michigan halted on Monday the deportation of more than 1,400 Iraqi nationals from the United States, the latest legal victory for the Iraqi nationals facing deportation in a closely watched case.The decision effectively means no Iraqi nationals can be deported from the United States for several months.It was not immediately known whether Goldsmith's ruling would be appealed by the U.S. government. There are 1,444 Iraqi nationals who have final deportation orders against them in the United States, although only about 199 of them were detained in June as part of a nationwide sweep by immigration authorities.
