Muslim group files lawsuit against Trump order
by Mark Hensch
The nation's largest Muslim advocacy group on Monday filed a lawsuit challenging President Trump's temporary travel ban on visitors from seven Muslim-majority nations.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations' (CAIR) suit questions the constitutionality of the controversial executive order signed last Friday that affects immigration and refugees.
"Our First Amendment is under attack," attorney Shereef Akeel, a co-counsel on the lawsuit, said in a statement Monday.
"We, as attorneys, are foot soldiers of the American Constitution and took an oath to protect all from being targeted by the government because of their faith," he added.
