A federal lawsuit was filed in February 2016 challenging President Trump's Muslim ban executive order, charging it violates the Constitution - including the First Amendment's prohibition of government establishment of religion and the Fifth Amendment's guarantees of equal treatment under the law - and federal laws.
The lawsuit was brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU of Maryland, and National Immigration Law Center on behalf of HIAS and the International Refugee Assistance Project at the Urban Justice Center, along with individuals, including U.S. citizens, impacted by the ban. The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland.
