Case Summary

On October 2, 2017, the group Iranian Alliances Across Borders filed this complaint on behalf of a group of plaintiffs of Iranian descent. The suit challenged President Trump's Sept. 24 Proclamation indefinitely restricting travel from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen. Otherwise known as EO-3, the proclamation was the President's third attempt to restrict travel from particular countries. The first attempt was by and Executive Order (EO) issued in January 2017…

On October 2, 2017, the group Iranian Alliances Across Borders filed this complaint on behalf of a group of plaintiffs of Iranian descent. The suit challenged President Trump's Sept. 24 Proclamation indefinitely restricting travel from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Syria, Venezuela and Yemen. Otherwise known as EO-3, the proclamation was the President's third attempt to restrict travel from particular countries. The first attempt was by and Executive Order (EO) issued in January 2017. In response to that order, a slew of litigation ensued. That litigation, and the decisions that followed, eventually led the President to issue a new, revised order. However, the litigation continued, and in September, President Trump issued his proclamation just as the second EO was about to expire.

In response to that proclamation, and alongside other suits challenging the EOs, plaintiffs filed their complaint in the Maryland District Court. The case was assigned to Judge Chuang, who also was presiding in IRAP v. Trump. In their complaint, plaintiffs alleged that the proclamation targeted and discriminated against Muslims and that it violated the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) by discriminating based on national origin. Plaintiffs also alleged that the order violated the First Amendment's Establishment and Free Speech Clauses and the Fifth Amendment's Equal Protection and Due Process Clauses. As relief, plaintiffs requested a nationwide injunction barring the government from enforcing the new order.

On October 12, 2017, the government responded to plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction by arguing that the case should be dismissed because the plaintiffs lacked standing. The government also argued that, irrespective of standing, the President has broad authority to issue orders on immigration matters, particularly when national security is at stake. That day, plaintiffs amended their complaint to add to new plaintiffs, and on October 17, Judge Chuang granted in part plaintiffs' preliminary injunction motion. In his order, Judge Chuang enjoined the government from enforcing Section 2 of the proclamation, which suspended the entry of nationals from eight specified countries. However, the injunction only applied to those individuals who have a bona-fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States. Later that week the government followed up with a notice that it would appeal Judge Chuang's order.

On October 20, 2017, the appeal was consolidated with two other cases: IRAP v. Trump and Zakzok v. Trump. To read more about what happened to this case on appeal, please visit the IRAP v. Trump Clearinghouse page.

Those cases progressed to the Supreme Court. On June 26, 2018, the Supreme Court in Hawaii v. Trump rejected plaintiffs' constitutional challenges to EO-3. Writing for the majority, Chief Justice Roberts endorsed a broad view of presidential power, holding that under the INA the President has "broad discretion to suspend the entry of aliens into the United States” and that here the President "lawfully exercised that discretion.” The majority dismissed the plaintiffs’ claims that the President must explain his findings, calling the argument “questionable” and writing that “the 12-page Proclamation—which thoroughly describes the process, agency evaluations, and recommendations underlying the President’s chosen restrictions—is more detailed than any prior order a President has issued under §1182(f).” As for plaintiff’s Establishment Clause argument, the Court first noted that EO-3's facially neutral policy towards religion forced the Court to take the extra step of probing "the sincerity of the stated justifications for the policy by reference to extrinsic statements—many of which were made before the President took the oath of office.” Applying a rational basis test, the Court found that “the Proclamation is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices. The text says nothing about religion.” Notably, the Court did however use the opinion to officially repudiate Korematsu writing that the decision was "was gravely wrong the day it was decided.”

Back in this district court, on November 2, 2018, the plaintiffs filed a second amended complaint. In it, the plaintiffs withdrew their claims as to the INA.

On November 7, 2018, the government moved to dismiss plaintiffs' allegations for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted. On May 2, 2019, the district court granted the government's motion with respect to plaintiffs' claims arising under the Administrative Procedure Act but denied the motion as it pertained to claims under the Constitution. The court reasoned that the standard for an injunction was higher than that at the dismissal stage. Therefore, the court stated that while the plaintiffs may not be likely to succeed on the merits and thus not entitled to a preliminary injunction, the plaintiffs did successfully allege plausible claims for relief.

On June 18, 2019, the court granted the government leave to file a motion to file an interlocutory appeal. On August 20, 2019, the court granted the government's motion to file an interlocutory appeal, but it did not stay discovery. However, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit stayed the case in the district court on September 11, 2019.

On June 8, 2020, the Fourth Circuit reversed this district court's ruling on the government's motion to dismiss. 961 F.3d 635. The appellate court reasoned that the Supreme Court in Hawaii v. Trump had already made a determination that it was not possible, and thus not plausible, for Constitutional challenges to the EOs to survive rational basis review. This was because of the great judicial deference that the courts ought to afford in areas of immigration, particularly as they may pertain to claims of preserving national security. Accordingly, the Fourth Circuit remanded the case and instructed this district court to dismiss plaintiffs' claims.

After the appellate court denied a motion to rehear the case en banc, this district court dismissed the case with prejudice on August 31, 2020.
