Firm Partners with ACLU of MA in Lawsuit Against the President’s Travel Ban

We are currently serving as co-counsel with the ACLU of Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office, and others in a lawsuit against the president’s executive order curbing immigration by refugees and others traveling from seven majority Muslim countries. While a temporary restraining order is currently in place that prohibits the government from detaining or removing anyone who is legally authorized to enter the United States, we are working to ensure that the right to due process is afforded to all individuals, and to minimize the executive order’s significant adverse impacts on businesses, in Massachusetts and nationally, that rely on visa-holding skilled labor from other parts of the world.
