No. 17-1351 ___________________________________________ UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE FOURTH CIRCUIT ___________________________________________ INTERNATIONAL REFUGEE ASSISTANCE PROJECT, a project of the Urban Justice Center, Inc., et al., Plaintiffs-Appellees, v. DONALD TRUMP, President of the United States, et al., Defendant-Appellants. ______________________________________________________ ON APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF MARYLAND ______________________________________________________ MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE BRIEF OF AMICI CURIAE IMMIGRATION LAW SCHOLARS AND CLINICIANS ON STATUTORY CLAIMS IN SUPPORT OF PLAINTIFFS-APPELLEES ______________________________________________ Counsel for Amici FATMA E. MAROUF Professor of Law Director, Immigrant Rights Clinic Texas A&M University School of Law 307 W. 7th St. Suite LL50 Fort Worth, TX 76102 Telephone: (817) 212-4123 Facsimile: (817) 212-4124 Email: fatma.marouf@law.tamu.edu (Affiliation listed for identification only) Undersigned law professors and law school clinicians respectfully move this Court for permission to file an amici curiae brief in support of Plaintiffs. In support of this motion, proposed amici state as follows: 1. Proposed amici are immigration professors and clinicians at law schools. Amici have personal, professional, and academic connections to individuals impacted by Executive Order 13780 (Mar. 6, 2017) (“EO”). In addition, as scholars and practitioners of immigration law, they have an interest in ensuring correct and just interpretations of the Immigration and Nationality Act (“INA”). 2. Immigration clinics—and attorneys within those clinics—have had direct experiences with clients, students, and faculty who have sought their assistance with immigration concerns resulting from the Executive Orders barring entry to individuals from certain countries. Immigration clinics worked hard to assist individuals detained at airports and stranded abroad amidst confusion after Executive Order 13769 (Jan. 17, 2017) was issued. They continue to provide legal advice, conduct community workshops, undertake research, and represent clients affected by the EO. 3. Proposed amici are vitally interested in protecting the rights of their students, colleagues, and clients, whose status in the United States is jeopardized by the EO. 4. All parties have consented to the filing of this amicus brief. For the foregoing reasons, proposed amici respectfully request permission to file the proposed brief of amici curiae in support of Plaintiffs-Appellees. DATED: April 21, 2017 Respectfully submitted, /s/ Fatma E. Marouf _______________________ Fatma E.
