Cities and Counties File Amicus Brief Challenging President's Travel Ban

34 Cities and Counties, Including Madison, Sign On in Darweesh v. Trump Amicus Brief in the Eastern District of New York to challenge the President's Executive Order on the Travel Restrictions from Seven Muslim-Majority Countries. Signatory Cities & Counties Represent 23 Million People Nationwide. Amicus Brief Filing Here: PDF 

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin "We are confident - confident in our Constitution, confident in our legal position, confident in our diverse immigrant community. We are confident in our efforts to thwart the chaos, foolishness and cruelty fostered by President Trump."

I am a proud that Madison signed on to the amicus brief with over 30 other cities to challenge the travel ban. I was a proud sponsor of legistar 45903 A Resolution Condemning Recent Executive Orders, Reaffirming the City of Madison as an Open and Welcoming City, and Confirming the City's Policies on Federal Immigration Laws? adopted by the Madison Common Council February 7, 2017. I  look forward to representing all of our city's residents unapologetically and unambiguously. Doing so is the only way to truly keep our community safe for everyone. While the administration backed off of the Dept Homeland Security draft memo reported in the press last week that proposed to mobilize 100,000  National Guard in 11 states to deport 'unauthorized immigrants'. If such a directive were adopted, it would be an unprecedented expansion of the legal responsibilities of the National Guard and likely lead to court challenges.
