SPOKANE, Wash. – Gonzaga University School of Law will host a community forum on President Donald Trump’s recent immigration order to restrict travel from seven largely Muslim countries and suspend refugee entry into the United States. The free, public event begins at 5 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 21 in the Law School’s Barbieri Courtroom.

Faculty experts in the areas of constitutional law, immigration, refugees and asylum, and international law will address the legal issues surrounding the executive order, including status of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ Feb. 9 decision refusing to reinstate President Trump’s ban. The three-judge panel declined to block a ruling from U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle that suspended the ban.

For more information, contact Darin Watkins, at Gonzaga Law School at (509) 313-3771 or watkinsd@gonzaga.edu.
