Amicus Brief

Darweesh v. Trump (Eastern District of New York, 2017)

At issue in this case is President Trump’s Executive Order (EO) on immigration and refugees. ADL filed an amicus brief in support of the plaintiffs’ challenge to the EO. The brief urges the Court to issue a preliminary injunction, blocking implementation of the EO’s temporary ban on entry into the United States of people from seven majority-Muslim nations. 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.
