LGBT Bar LA Joins Amicus Brief Criticizing Presidential Proclamation Dangerous to LGBT Persons in Targeted Countries

The LGBT Bar Association of Los Angeles proudly joins the attached amicus brief recently filed in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.  The brief, filed on behalf of numerous organizations committed to the equal treatment of LGBT persons around the world, highlights the dangerous and life-threatening consequences generated by the recent “Presidential Proclamation Enhancing Vetting Capabilities and Processes for Detecting Attempted Entry Into the United States by Terrorists or Other Public-Safety Threats.”  The Proclamation effectively bans immigration into the United States of, among others, LGBT persons from eight countries.  LGBT persons in those countries live daily under threat of persecution, including death.
