I attended my first Values Voter Summit this weekend, the annual event hosted by the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C., that aims to “mobilize citizens to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life and limited government.”
Washington DC – Today, the plaintiffs in Iranian Alliances Across Borders (IAAB) v. Trump filed a motion for a preliminary injunction to block President Donald Trump from fully implementing his latest attempt to ban nationals from several predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.
Today, Americans United and our allies will ask a federal court to block President Donald Trump’s Muslim Ban 3.0 from taking effect until the case we filed challenging the latest ban is decided.
We are filing a request for a preliminary injunction that would stop the Muslim ban from taking effect on Oct. 18. The Trump administration wants to indefinitely bar nationals from the predominantly Muslim countries of Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria and Yemen from entering the United States.
Washington, DC – Last night, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Muslim Advocates and Southern Poverty Law Center filed Muslim Advocates v. Department of Homeland Security to compel the Trump administration to release critically important details on how an individual may obtain a waiver under the Muslim ban executive order.
Washington, DC – Today, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Muslim Advocates and Covington & Burling LLP, in collaboration with the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) and the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU, announced two lawsuits against the Trump administration’s latest efforts to unlawfully block the entry of Muslims into the United States and to carry out President Trump’s long-promised Muslim ban.
For more information, please join a press call tomorrow, Oct. 3, at 11 a.m. EST.
