International Refugee Assistance Project v. Trump (U.S. District Court Of Maryland, 2017)

At issue in this case is Section 5(d) of President Trump’s Executive Order (EO) on immigration and refugees, which caps the number of refugees eligible to enter the United States at 50,000 annually. ADL filed an amicus brief in support of the International Refugee Assistance Project’s challenge to 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.
