The plaintiffs have requested that the federal trial level courts in Brooklyn order Mr. Trump to both inform all aggrieved parties of their US constitutional, statutory and regulatory rights — and provide the lawyers for plaintiffs with contact details for each person refused entry since the date of the executive order — so that the status of each of those persons may be evaluated, regardless of where they have been sent off to, by Mr. Trump’s agents. [Sort of a Miranda warning, for all affected persons, if you will.]
I predict the plaintiffs will win the vast bulk of this motion. And, here is the full filing, from just this morning — and a bit:
. . . .[T]here is significant evidence of systemic coercion, and many if not most or nearly all of the individuals who were excluded want at least the opportunity to return — as evident by the many individuals who have already returned despite the ordeal they suffered
during their initial exclusion. See Dkt. 53-1 at 15-17 (describing government’s coercive tactics outlined in declarations of removed individuals).
Petitioners obviously do not argue that any class member must come back; but the government can and should facilitate the identification of class members and their return if they wish. . . .
For the balance of the day, since I am off-grid with a client — I’ve revised my masthead to reflect what science looks like, on “a day without immigrants“. President Washington certainly would agree — our 240 years of shared history is. . . almost to a person, immigrants‘ history. Here endeth the sermon.
