"It is our freedoms that make America great, and it is our diversity that makes America strong."
DALLAS – December 6, 2017 – Representatives from Muslim Legal Fund of America, a constitutional rights organization, are directing community members to the advisory prepared by Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America, a nonprofit law firm funded by MLFA, in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to allow President Trump’s Presidential Proclamation restricting immigration from Muslim-majority nations. The advisory explains the decision and provides general advice for foreign nationals and international travelers.
In the advisory, attorneys from CLCMA said:
It is important to note that the Supreme Court’s Order removes the temporary stay, it is not a ruling on the merits of the case. The constitutional challenges to the travel bans are live in the Fourth and Ninth Courts of Appeals. Thus, the fight against the travel ban is ongoing and subject to change at any moment.
