Lawsuits filed across the Country in opposition to Trump’s Executive Order of a Muslim Ban

In response to Trump’s January 27, 2017, Executive Order (EO), attorneys and advocacy groups across the country filed lawsuits in federal court this weekend on behalf of petitioners who were denied entry to the United States pursuant to the EO. First, a court in New York issued a nationwide, emergency stay of removal preventing deportation for individuals with valid visas and approved refugee applications affected by the EO. Going a bit further, a court in Massachusetts barred federal officials from detaining or removing individuals subject to the EO. Also, a court in Virginia ordered federal officials to provide lawyers access to “all legal permanent residents being detained at Dulles International Airport,” and barred officials from deporting covered individuals for the next seven days. Finally, a court in Washington State barred the government from deporting two unnamed individuals from the United States.
