LAWSUIT AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR VIOLATING THE U.S. CONSTITUTION

AN IRANIAN AMERICAN LAW FIRM, KAMELI LAW GROUP FILED A LAWSUIT AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP FOR VIOLATING THE U.S. CONSTITUTION ON BEHALF OF HIMSELF AND ALL IRANIAN GREEN CARD HOLDERS

A Lawful Permanent Resident of the United States with Iranian Citizenship filed a lawsuit against Donald J. Trump, the President of the United States, for violating the constitution of the United States by issuing an Executive Order that bars U.S. Permanent Residents from Iran as well as six other countries from entering the United States. The lawsuit was filed in Northern District of Illinois in Chicago as John Doe v. Donald J. Trump, et al., case number 17-cv-00770.

Plaintiff filed suit under the pseudonym of John Doe to protect his identity, but he has been a permanent resident of the United States since 2011 and recently traveled to Iran to care for his ill mother. He is due back to the United States in the next few days as his first grandchild is due to be born in February.

With the current Executive Order in place and regardless of Trump’s administration’s contradictory immigration announcements about allowing Permanent Residents from Iran and six other countries to enter the U.S., the Executive Order remains in effect and has created confusion among residents, airlines, and many agencies.

Plaintiff has requested a federal judge to rule Section 3, Subparagraph C of the January 27, 2017 Executive Order unconstitutional as it applies to lawful permanent residents of the U.S. and invalidate that section; order the Department of Homeland Security to notify airlines to allow permanent residents of the U.S. from countries affected by the President’s Executive Order of January 27, 2017 to travel to the U.S.; and direct the Customs and Border Protection agency that Permanent Residents have a right to enter the U.S. without delay pursuant to 8 USC section 1101(a)(13)(C).

Tonight, President Trump fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she declined to defend President Trump’s travel ban stating that she is not “convinced that the executive order is lawful.”

We are hopeful that our independent judges in our court continue to uphold about our Constitution and the values respected in our nation.
