We have received both confirmed and unconfirmed reports of nationals of Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, and Libya who have attempted to board planes at international locations, have unexpired visas or green cards, but have been refused boarding by the carriers due to President Trump's executive order of 1/27/17. These refusals are despite federal court orders allowing these nationals to travel to the U.S. with previously issued visas for a limited period of time.
If you know of any affected individuals that have had this experience, please complete the below survey. The purpose of gathering this information is to learn more about which airlines are denying boarding to affected individuals and to identify individuals willing to submit an affidavit with regard to their experiences with airlines. Please share only information that you have learned FIRST HAND (directly from a client or affected individual). Ensure that you and the affected individual are comfortable that this information will be shared with a limited group of attorneys and other volunteers.
NOTE: We are not collecting the full names or other personal identifiable information on this e-mail chain, only first names to the extent individuals are willing to provide them (for organizational purposes and to identify duplicate entries). THAT SAID, IF YOU SUBMIT INFORMATION ON AN AFFECTED INDIVIDUAL, PLEASE COLLECT AND RETAIN THEIR CONTACT INFORMATION IN YOUR OWN FILES. We may follow up with you to contact them for additional information or affidavits.
PRIVACY DISCLAIMER: Please be aware most information transmitted over the Internet is not secure; thus, confidentiality cannot be guaranteed. If you choose to provide us with personal information, we will use that information for the purposes stated above only. We will not give, share, sell, or transfer any personal information to a third party unless required by law.
