Hawaii v. Trump (U.S. District Court of Hawaii, 2017)

State Court ,

At issue in this case is President Trump’s second executive order on refugees which, among other things, temporarily banned travel from six majority-Muslim countries and suspended refugee resettlement in the United States for a period of 120 days. ADL filed an amicus brief urging the court to block enforcement of the executive order. The brief traces America’s history as a nation dedicated to ideals of equality, liberty and justice, and warns against repeating the shameful times in our past when America has turned against those ideals. On March 14, 2017 the court issued a temporary restraining order blocking enforcement nationwide of the travel and refugee bans.
