The Constitution and The Travel Ban
Start Date: 8/30/2017Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 8/30/2017End Time: 9:00 PM
Event Description:

In January and March of 2017, President Trump issued two successive executive orders that together banned people from six majority-Muslim countries – Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen – from entering the US for 90 days and indefinitely halting entry of all Syrian refugees.

 

Two circuit courts effectively stopped the executive order from being enacted, but on Monday, June 26, the Supreme Court allowed parts of the travel ban to go into effect. The Supreme Court will hear the case this fall.

 

Professor Anthony Winer, a specialist in Constitutional and International Law at Mitchell Hamline School of Law, will discuss the travel ban and issues related to the constitutionality of the ban

 

Open to the public. No reservations necessary. $10 general public, $5 students and seniors, and free to Mitchell Hamline students. $25 for 2 standard CLE credits for lawyers. 2 ‘clock hours’ for educators.

 

The event includes a brief tour of “Tracks in the Snow,” an exhibit curated by the Islamic Resource Group on display at the Mitchell Hamline Art Gallery. The exhibit features stories of some of the more than 200,000 Muslims from all over the world who currently make Minnesota their home.

 

Sponsored by World Without Genocide.  Exhibit co-sponsors include Douglas Heidenreich, Emeritus Professor, Mitchell Hamline; Walid and Dania Issa; and the Human Rights Committee of the Minnesota State Bar Association.
