WATCH | Here's CAIR's press conference on its lawsuit against the travel ban.
Here's the full lawsuit.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations will file a federal lawsuit on Monday, claiming President Trump's executive order that temporarily banned immigration by citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries violates the Constitution.
CAIR is scheduled to hold a press conference at 1 p.m. announcing the lawsuit, filed on behalf of more than 20 people.
New: A lawsuit arguing ENTIRE order is an unconstitutional religious ban will be filed tomorrow— Ari Melber (@AriMelber) January 30, 2017
in federal court in Virginia, per CAIR.
Unlike recent court rulings, this lawsuit will target the entire executive order.
There is no evidence that refugees - the most thoroughly vetted of all people entering our nation - are a threat to national security.
CAIR, based in Washington, is America's largest Muslim and civil liberties and advocacy organization.
Trump has insisted characterizations of the order as a "Muslim ban" are misguided.
