Arab American Civil Rights League, et al., v. Trump (2020)

On July 31, 2020 FFRF joined a coalition of civic organizations in a 6th Circuit brief in opposition to then President Trump’s travel ban for Muslims.

This brief argued that the presidential executive order and its two prior iterations all contributed to violence and bigotry not only against Muslims but against immigrants more broadly. FFRF specifically opposed the ban due to its potential to be extended to non-believers as well.

Lynne Bernabei and Alan Kabat filed this on behalf of the following civil rights organizations: Advocates for Youth, Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights under Law,  Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, Mississippi Center for Justice, National Center for Lesbian Rights and Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs
