CITY ATTORNEY CALLS ON FEDS TO RELEASE INFORMATION ON COMPLIANCE WITH COURT ORDERS ON TRAVEL BAN

Updated: May 8


The full letter is here.

Citing the importance of federal compliance with court orders limiting the Trump Administration's travel ban Executive Order, City Attorney Mike Feuer today sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Acting Commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Kevin K. McAleenan and Los Angeles Area Port Director Mitchell Merriam seeking to verify compliance by federal agencies with two court orders relating to foreign entry events at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) starting January 27, 2017. The Restraining Orders issued by courts enjoin federal agents from removing individuals with approved refugee applications, holders of valid immigrant and non-immigrant visas, and other other individuals from the seven nations named in the Executive Order.

The letter constitutes an official request that the federal government and the federal officers and employees subject to the Restraining Orders provide, in writing, answers to a series of questions relating to all Los Angeles-bound travelers impacted by the Executive Order entitled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States."
