Syrian Mother in Trump Lawsuit: ‘It’s unfair’
SEATTLE (AP) — A Syrian woman who is trying to bring her 16-year-old son to the United States from the war-torn country says President Donald Trump's order prohibiting some people from that country from traveling to the U.S. is unfair.
Reema Duhman, now living in Seattle, is a plaintiff in a federal class-action lawsuit filed in Seattle this week by the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project that says Trump's order is unconstitutional and a violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
The case is one of many being filed across the country seeking to lift the travel ban on constitutional grounds. A federal judge in Los Angeles on Tuesday granted a temporary restraining order in one of these cases, thereby prohibiting officials from enforcing the order.
A federal judge in Seattle will hear arguments on Friday for a nationwide restraining order in a case filed by Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson that claims the order is unconstitutional.
