“Implications of the ‘Travel Ban'”
Founder and Chair, Mintz Immigration Practice
President & CEO, WorldBoston
Wednesday, July 12, 2017
1:00-1:30 p.m. (CT)
On March 6th President Trump signed an Executive Order titled, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States.” Legal challenges led to a showdown in the top court. On June 26th, the Supreme Court chose to allow a limited travel ban to be imposed. While the court has yet to issue a final ruling, many questions have emerged. How many will this effect? Does religion play a role in this ban? How will this shape U.S. relations with the countries in question?
Join the founder and chair, Mintz Immigration Practice and WorldBoston President and CEO about the background and context of the Supreme Court decision and what we should expect to come next.
