TRUMP TRAVEL BAN - NINTH CIRCUIT: SLF Supports Trump, Constitution
ATLANTA, GA/SAN FRANCISCO, CA: Southeastern Legal Foundation, alongside one of the nation's top appellate litigators, filed an amicus brief defending the Trump administration's Executive Order 13,780, commonly known as the Travel Ban. As William S. Consovoy, former clerk for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and partner with Washington, DC-based Consovoy McCarthy Park, LLC, made clear in the brief to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, VA, several circuits have essentially denied clear statutory and constitutional authority to the Chief Executive by way of citing to campaign statements made months before the November 2016 election - and months before President Trump took the oath of office.
SLF and Consovoy filed an amicus supporting the Trump Travel Ban in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals earlier in April.
