Over the days since President Trump signed his executive order banning immigrants and refugees from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States, Lawfare has produced a great deal of commentary and analysis on the subject. But our readers should also be aware that Just Security has had some first-rate coverage of the executive order, particularly on many technical questions of immigration law.

As such, we asked our colleagues at Just Security to help us put together a roundup of their recent material on the executive order that our readers should see. Below the list as it now stands. Be sure to keep checking the site as news coverage of the order moves forward.
