This event will focus on the short-and long-term impacts of President Trump’s Muslim travel ban executive orders on the American Muslim community and beyond.  The event will take place less than a week after President Trump issued a third iteration of the travel ban.  The event will begin with panelists providing an overview of the travel ban, comments on the ongoing litigation, and discussion of the policies included in and related to the travel ban that have not received as much media attention but are nonetheless increasingly impacting different communities.  Following the panelists’ presentation, there will be an extended Q&A session in which community members can voice their questions and concerns.


1:30-1:40 Opening Remarks
1:40-1:55 Athar Haseebullah will discuss how the travel ban has impacted the Las Vegas community.
1:55-2:10 Professor Michael Kagan will present an overview of key legal arguments raised in travel ban litigation.
2:10-2:40 Juvaria Khan will discuss potential Supreme Court rulings in travel ban litigation and an overview of less-discussed portions of the travel ban and related policies, such as extreme vetting and its likely impact on American Muslims.
