Making The American Dream Come True

Lawsuit Filed to Set Aside Trump's April & June Proclamations

Posted by PR Team on Fri, Jul 17, 2020 @ 2:30 PM

Today, our client and 22 individual and organizational plaintiffs, including family-based immigrant visa petitioners, diversity visa lottery winners, and nonimmigrant visa sponsors, including those who want to bring in healthcare professionals from abroad to help during the pandemic, sued to prevent the devastating effects of President’s Trump’s unlawful and unconstitutional immigration ban.  Litigators from the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Justice Action Center and Innovation Law Lab, with pro bono support from Mayer Brown LLP as Lead Counsel, filed the plaintiffs’ claims as an amended complaint in Gomez v. Trump, (copy attached) which had initially challenged President Trump’s April immigration ban.  Today’s amended complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, marks the first legal challenge to the entirety of President Trump's immigration ban, which has been extended through the end of 2020.
