Update on Travel Ban and the Courts:

On May 2, a federal district court in Maryland denied the government’s motion to dismiss the plaintiffs challenges to the 9/24/17 Presidential Proclamation, finding that the plaintiffs had put forward factual allegations sufficient to show that the 9/24/17 proclamation is not rationally related to legitimate national security and information-sharing justifications and is instead grounded in the illegitimate and unconstitutional purpose of disadvantaging Muslims.
