Gonzaga Law School to Hold Public Forum on Travel Bans, Executive Orders

Next week Gonzaga University School of Law will host a community forum on President Donald Trump’s immigration order to restrict travel from seven largely Muslim countries and suspend refugee entry into the United States.

According to a press release, faculty experts in the areas of constitutional law, immigration, refugees and asylum, and international law will address the legal issues surrounding the executive order, including status of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ Feb. 9 decision refusing to reinstate Trump’s ban. The three-judge panel declined to block a ruling from U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle that suspended the ban.

The free event begins at 5 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 21 in the Law School’s Barbieri Courtroom.
