Fellows Play Significant Roles in Challenge of Immigration Order

A group of former, current and incoming Fellows is challenging President Trump's immigration order in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. Muneer Ahmad ('97) from Yale Law School (standing, middle); Becca Heller ('10), founder of the International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP); Karen Tumlin ('05) of the National Immigration Law Center; and Mike Wishnie ('95) from Yale Law School were pictured in a courtroom sketch of the case. Fellow Julie Kornfeld ('16) of IRAP also is involved in the case. The team relied on the work of many law students, including incoming Fellow Will Bloom ('17). Muneer and Becca also were quoted in a New York Times article about the case ("U.S. List of Those Detained for Trump's Travel Ban Is Called Incomplete," Feb. 24).
