International Refugee Assistance Project v. Trump (2019)

The Freedom From Religion Foundation signed onto this coalition brief that was filed with the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. It argues against the Trump era ban on immigrants from several Muslim-majority countries. FFRF specifically took a position against this ban because the policy impinges the rights of Muslims, other religious minorities, and non-believers.

This brief was filed by the Bernabie & Kabat law firm. Groups that also joined on the brief include Advocates for Youth, Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, Chicago Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights under Law, Judge David L. Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law, Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, Mississippi Center for Justice, National Center for Lesbian Rights, National Urban League, People for the American Way Foundation; Southern Coalition for Social Justice, and Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs.
