Read the Brief Filed on Behalf of 138 Members of Congress Opposing the Trump Travel Ban

It was an honor to play a small part in the submission of a brief filed on behalf of 138 members of the U.S. Congress opposing the Trump Travel Ban.  Read the brief here.   The brief relies on separation-of-powers principles, textual arguments, and legislative history to argue that the ban is an example of unlawful executive overreach and violates both the Immigration and Nationality Act and the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

It was a particular honor to work with Albany Law Students Andrew Carpenter, Elyssa Klein, Mary Ann Krisa, Graham Molho, and Gloria Sprague, who offered critical research assistance to this effort.


  1. So proud of the legal work you and the students did on this critical issue. LAWYER’s knowledge, skills and values can make a difference!
