v. Trump [MAP]

The Dearborn-based Arab American Civil Rights League, joined by Asian-American and Native American legal groups.

A Colorado community college student from Libya.

An Iranian-born professor on the East Coast.

All of those are plaintiffs in some of the dozens of legal challenges that have been filed in federal courts since President Trump issued his executive order on immigration. Some of the suits were withdrawn after the White House clarified the order or judges issued rulings, allowing people with green cards to enter the United States.

One of them resulted in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision Thursday that confirmed a lower court’s stay of the order.

Using federal court records and media reports, WDET compiled an index of the cases. Here it is:
