Clark Hill's Patrick Taurel Quoted in Amnesty International Australia on President’s Travel Ban

May 11, 2017

Washington, D.C. – Immigration attorney Patrick Taurel was quoted in an Amnesty International Australia article regarding President Trump’s travel ban, which seeks to bar the nationals of six Muslim-majority countries from traveling to the United States for a period of at least 90 days and suspend the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. At this time, the Executive Order is not in effect due to preliminary injunctions issued by the United States District Courts for the Districts of Hawaii and Maryland. In the article, Taurel notes that the outcome of the cases challenging the Executive Order, which many believe to be destined for the Supreme Court, could shape immigration to the United States for years to come, because the Executive Order authorizes the President to add to the list of banned countries and extend the travel ban beyond 90 days.
