ADC Files U.S. Supreme Court Brief in IRAP v. Trump
Washington, DC | www.adc.org
| September 19, 2017 – Yesterday, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis LLP, filed an amicus (friend of the court) brief to the United States Supreme Court in IRAP v. Trump. The brief support the petitioners, the International Refugee Assistance Program, and calls on the U.S. Supreme Court to invalidate the Executive Order as unconstitutional and illegal.
The brief uniquely argues that the Executive Order is invalid because the government has not met the “finding” requirement for actual security threat under law. The brief further asserts that the government’s reasons for the travel ban are pretextual and nationality is being used to target Arabs and Muslims because of their identity and religious beliefs.
ADC strongly encourages everyone to get involved in this monumental case. You can get involved and find out about more events and activities to demand No Ban, No Wall, and No Raids.
It is not too late to Register for our 37th Annual National Convention
in Washington, D.C. on September 22 – 24, 2017 where we will have several panels addressing the Muslim Ban: Criminalization of Race and Color; No Ban, No Wall, No Raids; Muslim Ban: The Impacted Communities; and our Annual Civil Rights Luncheon.
