The CCBLC is a network of Canadian lawyers working to help those impacted by the US President’s discriminatory travel ban, in partnership with colleagues in the US and around the world. On January 27, 2017, the US President signed an Executive Order banning entry to the US by individuals from seven Muslim-majority countries, as well as all refugees. This travel ban has caused large-scale rights violations and senseless family separation, and left thousands of refugees stranded in desperate circumstances.
