Extreme Vetting and the Muslim Ban

6:00 p.m. – Check-in + reception with hors d’oeuvres
6:30 p.m. – Program

The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on the constitutionality of President Trump’s Muslim ban on October 10th. The ban on travel from six Muslim countries was meant to be temporary, while the Trump administration developed a regime of “extreme vetting.” What is extreme vetting? Do we need it? How does it relate to the Muslim Ban, and how would it affect immigrant and Muslim communities? What screening procedures are already in place, and how do they work?

Join the Brennan Center and New York Immigration Coalition for a discussion on extreme vetting, the Muslim ban, and the implications for American democracy and society.
