Our roundup of documents in ongoing litigation related to Trump's executive order has now moved . This post will no longer be updated.

 

President Donald Trump’s banning entry into the United States by immigrants and refugees from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen is facing legal challenges in a number of federal jurisdictions. As of January 29th, less than forty-eight hours after the order was signed, four district courts have ordered for removals of immigrants and refugees trapped in airports to be stayed. The State of California and the State of Washington have also filed suit against the federal government.

Below is a roundup of the documents in ongoing litigation related to the executive order. We will update this post as further information comes in.
