July 28, 2017, Arlington, VA – Attorneys from global law firm Reed Smith LLP today filed a motion in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to ensure the court hears information about the concrete hardships President Trump’s travel ban is inflicting on the nation’s refugee resettlement organizations.
The Motion to Intervene, filed on behalf of the United States Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), requests the court’s permission for USCRI to intervene and voice the substantial adverse effects the government’s interpretation of the district court’s preliminary injunction against the travel ban is having on the operational and economic stability of the agencies in its network.  The motion was filed in the travel ban lawsuit brought by the state of Hawaii, which has been to the U.S. Supreme Court twice already.
