Today, the Supreme Court issued a 5-4 decision upholding the constitutionality of President Trump’s national security Proclamation that imposed immigration restrictions on nationals from certain countries that failed to comply with necessary security criteria. The decision by the Supreme Court reflects what we have argued from the very start – the Proclamation is squarely within the scope of Presidential authority and represents a tremendous victory in ongoing efforts to defend and protect... read more

The Supreme Court of the United States today upheld President Trump’s National Security Proclamation and reversed the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal’s contrary decision. The Proclamation, issued this past September, fulfilled the promise of President Trump’s March 6, 2017 National Security Executive Order. The March 6th Order, among other things, called for a global review by the Secretary of Homeland Security of nearly 200 countries to determine whether they provide sufficient information about... read more

Today’s 5-4 decision by the Supreme Court in NIFLA v. Becerra is a tremendous victory for life and free speech.

Within just days of one victory in a National Motto case , another federal appellate court dismissed a similar lawsuit brought by a Satanist. The self-proclaimed “Satanist,” Kenneth Mayle, had sued the United States government, claiming that the National Motto – “In God We Trust” – on currency violates his constitutional rights under the Free Speech and Free Exercise Clauses. Specifically, Mayle claimed that, in holding and using currency, he is compelled to proclaim the “existence of” and... read more

Last year we informed you about a three-year-old Christian girl who was sexually assaulted by a Muslim man. After a legal battle for over a year, we are glad to inform you that justice has been served. As we reported earlier, the victim’s family contacted our international affiliate, the European Centre for Law and Justice’s (ECLJ) office in Pakistan, the Organization for Legal Aid (OLA), for help. Catherine, Sahiba’s mom, is a single mother of three who works as a janitor at a local hospital. read more

A federal appellate court has just dismissed an atheist lawsuit, agreeing once again with our arguments that the National Motto – In God We Trust – does not violate the Constitution. Earlier this week, the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit affirmed the lower court’s decision dismissing Michael Newdow’s lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the National Motto. As we previously noted , atheists, represented by Michael Newdow argued that the mere presence of the National Motto on... read more

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) is at it yet again. Recently, Attorney Donald G. Rehkopf and the MRFF sent a formal complaint to Rear Admiral Paul D. Pearigen, MC, USN, because a Bible and a bi-lingual placard were part of the POW/MIA Display at the Marine Corps Base Camp Butler in Okinawa, Japan. MRFF has a long and well-documented history of spurious attacks on our military and insult-laden diatribes, masquerading as legal analysis, against the faith of the men and women who... read more

As reported here , we recently sued the City of New York in federal court over a city law that was being used by some city police to threaten with jail peaceful sidewalk counselors who came within fifteen feet of the entrance of abortion businesses. The law, Administrative Code §8-803 makes it unlawful to “follow and harass” another person within 15 feet of a “reproductive health care facility.” First-time violators face a fine of up to $1,000 and six months in jail. Whatever the “follow and... read more

Recently, the ACLJ was contacted by a man (who asked to remain anonymous for this article) who was dealing with disturbing religious discrimination in his Midwest city. This past year, he and his team of volunteers were allowed to share the Gospel, have Christ-centered conversations, and hand out religious literature, during the city’s annual Tulip Festival. This was a big deal because the city’s population is only about 10,000, and the city draws about 200,000 people each year for the... read more

Like many local governments, the City of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, tries to assist citizens in publicizing upcoming community events. Grand Rapids does this through its Readerboard, a large electronic marquee on which nonprofit organizations may advertise their activities, subject to certain restrictions. Among these restrictions, as one local Christian organization discovered, however, was an outright prohibition against any ads that contained religious content. Believing this type of... read more
