Join the Northeast Ohio Chapter and the Case Western Reserve University School of Law Student Chapter as we discuss Trump, Security, and Muslim Civil Liberties. Introduce a friend or colleague to ACS by inviting them to join you at this event!

During his campaign and in the days leading up to his inauguration, President-elect Donald J. Trump has made several proposals and remarks concerning a Muslim registry, a ban on Muslim entry, extreme vetting of Muslims, loyalty oaths, mosque surveillance, and variations of these proposals with a focus on geographical regions from where Muslim-associated terrorists have emerged. The panel will discuss, in particular, the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS), a program implemented after the 9/11 attacks, but suspended in 2011, and just recently terminated by President Obama. NSEERS focused almost entirely on citizens of Muslim countries and required individuals to check in and report to government officials. Many experts speculate that Trump plans to reinstate the program. Experts and representatives from the Muslim community, constitutional law, immigration, and national security and law enforcement will discuss the various issues and concerns—legal, policy, and otherwise—related to these potential policies.
