CAASE works to lift up voices our community often ignores. After the recent ban barring millions of refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from the United States (as well as American citizens with dual citizenship), this is a critical moment to stand up for our constitutional principles. CAASE stands in solidarity with immigrants and refugees and rejects this gross infringement on human rights. CAASE provides free legal representation to survivors of sexual harm and exploitation, regardless of immigration status.
On Saturday, multiple federal courts ordered a stay of the Administration’s dangerous Executive Order. We applaud the actions of lawyers and organizers around the country who are working to end this ban entirely.
We urge friends like you to learn about the lives and experiences of those impacted by this discriminatory ban. Learn more about local and international resources and get involved. Also, learn which U.S. Senators backed or opposed the ban and contact them directly. If you're an attorney or interpreter, sign up to be a legal volunteer at the O'Hare airport triage.
The National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC) has also set up a dedicated email list for family members to contact NIJC before their potentially impacted loved ones travel or plan to arrive at O’Hare to proactively assess their options. Email litigation@
