WASHINGTON, June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), which has filed multiple amicus briefs – including at the Supreme Court – backing President Trump's Executive order designed to enhance our national security, said today it is very pleased that the Supreme Court has granted a stay and has agreed to hear the immigration case in the fall.
"We're very pleased with the court granting the stay concerning the most significant aspects of the President's Executive order on immigration," said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel of the ACLJ. "At the same time, we're very pleased that the high court has agreed to hear the case in the fall. It has been our position from the very beginning that the President - the Commander-in-Chief - has both the constitutional and statutory authority to issue the order. President Trump acted lawfully and constitutionally with the intent to protect the national security of the United States. We are confident that the high court will conclude on the merits that the President was acting within his constitutional authority."
The ACLJ will be filing an amicus brief with the Supreme Court supporting the immigration order.
