Syrian refugee files federal lawsuit against Trump EO, wants wife and child in America with him

Posted by Ann Corcoran on February 14, 2017

Reminder! Trump can legally lower the ceiling for the UN/US Refugee Admissions Program across the board!

Think about this, if this sort of case (challenging the Constitutionality of the Trump EO) prevails, could every legal non-citizen in America file cases with big New York City law firms to bring over every family member?

And, frankly, what I find most troubling about stories like this sob story in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, is how is it that this MAN left his wife and child behind in a war zone and saved his own skin first! Why does no one in authority ever ask that question!

Big New York City law firm filed the case!




MADISON, Wis. — A Syrian refugee living in Dane County has filed a federal lawsuit alleging President Donald Trump’s executive order halting immigration from seven countries is unconstitutional.

The man filed anonymously Monday to protect his wife and 3-year-old daughter, who are still in Aleppo, from being targeted by military regimes.

He had applied for them to join him in the United States, but his lawsuit filed Monday in Madison says processing was halted Jan. 27 when Trump stopped temporarily stopped immigration from seven predominantly Muslim and indefinitely banned refugees from Syria.


Attorneys from Holwell Shuster and Goldberg, a New York law firm, are representing the man. More than two dozen cases challenging the executive order have been filed in federal court.

More here.


Sec. of State Tillerson knows by now what could be done internally!

President Trump can still legally lower the ceiling on all refugee resettlement!

And, in so doing, wipe out these cases!

See our discussion here yesterday.

An important side benefit of placing a complete moratorium on the program now might be to inspire Congress to reform refugee law!

This morning we are at 34,825 refugees admitted this fiscal year—set the cap at 35,000 NOW!

Moratorium would be in effect until September when the President then sets the ceiling for FY18. This is the leverage the White House has to pressure Congress!

  1. Reblogged this on islamnewworldorder and commented:
    Give me a break, please!
    That Syrian dude can go back to his wife. Why the hell did he leave her in the first place. Sorry, but these “refugees” need to get their own life in order. America does not exist for them alone!!!!


  2. How many women have blown up Americans?! They believe dead American any religion BUT THEIRS are free to be killed! Wake up America?


  3. This anonymous Syrian man was subjected to imprisonment & torture in his war torn islamic utopian homeland. Then he learned he was at risk for execution by a rogue militia. Finally, he applied for and was granted REFUGE in a safe, distant and welcoming land. Praise allah! Nothing expresses sincere gratitude to the compassionate people and nation that provided you refuge like a lawsuit against the government and highest leader of that nation. Perhaps he should have sought refuge in Brazil, Columbia, Cameroon, or Saudi Arabia instead of the United States.


  4. Hi Ann- I heard an interesting discussion yesterday on talk radio, an interview with writer Michael Goodwin who was not always a Trump supporter but is now. Goodwin has been around a long time and has seen it all when it comes to politics. Anyhow, they were talking about all the issues, immigration, etc. and Goodwin pointed out something that I think is true. The key to Trump’s success was always the way he connected with We the People. It was not just the message as he himself said, but that he was a good messenger. Fast forward to today and it does seem like President Trump is now very much insulated from the People, surrounded by layers and layers of White House staff, assorted aides and hangers on, Secret Service, etc. Day by day he is getting more isolated from his base, and as Goodwin remarked, he should probably go out on another thank you tour to re-establish the connection.

    The point is that somehow, some way, someone on the Trump team needs to bring you in and take advantage of all the information you have acquired, vetted and shared with us! You are a freakin’ national treasure and yeah, it’s great that your name is mentioned here and there, it’s not the same thing as having you become a part of the team or at least an official advisor. You know so much more about this subject than 99% of the people that are advising Trump today, with the exception being Stephen Miller. They need to listen to you before it’s too late. Each day that goes by, the hole they’re digging just gets deeper.

    Thanks for all that you do, even if THEY don’t appreciate, your loyal readers do.

      Thanks as always for your vote of confidence. BTW great point about Trump getting insulated!

      And, the way I see it, I don’t want to be on the inside because someone still has to stay on the outside and holler at them! I doubt there is anyone in the country willing to work for many hours every day, sometimes seven days a week (for no salary!) to send out information (unfiltered by the media!) on this arcane federal program to regular folks! Not saying that to pat myself on back but that is the reality! Who would be me?
