Civil Rights Challenges to Trump Immigration Enforcement Orders

In his first week in office, President Trump issued three Executive Orders relating to immigration and refugee policy. The two immigration orders, available here and here directed much heavier use of detention for those seeking lawful status, an increase to the number of deportation officers, and building of a border wall. The order on refugees, available here, totally barred admission into the United States of all nationals of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen--including those who are already legal greencard holders and already here. It suspended the refugee program for all countries for 120 days (indefinitely for Syria).

Legal challenges ensued immediately. This page collects challenges to the two immigration enforcement orders. (For cases challenging the refugee/visa order, go to this other page. And for Freedom of Information Act litigation against the Trump administration, including a great deal of litigation relating to immigration and border enforcement, go here.
The below cases represent a special subset of the full Clearinghouse collection.
