IRAP STATEMENT ON TODAY’S SUPREME COURT DECISION
(New York, NY) – In response to today’s Supreme Court decision to dismiss the appeal of our challenge to the Muslim ban as moot, IRAP’s Litigation Director Mariko Hirose issued the following statement:
“This case is certainly not moot for our clients and for all of those who continue to be discriminated against by this shameful order and its updated version. IRAP and our partners are not done fighting for the rights of refugees, Muslim Americans, and their families. We will be back in court next week to challenge the most recent iteration of the Muslim ban. This administration should know that we will not give up until they’re held accountable for their discriminatory actions.”
The plaintiffs in IRAP v. Trump, together with newly added plaintiffs, recently filed an amended complaint challenging the President’s proclamation updating the previous travel ban. The case will be heard in the District Court of Maryland on October 16, 2017.
