LOS ANGELES, March 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Cortney Shegerian of the Los Angeles-based employment discrimination firm Shegerian & Associates recently issued a statement regarding the proposed class action lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) in response to President Trump’s executive order issued on January 27, 2017. The order temporarily banned travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States, including visa holders who are legally permitted to enter the country.

“Although the lawsuit was only filed on behalf of three individuals, there is no doubt that there are many other people out there who have been personally affected by this ban,” Shegerian states. “We urge those individuals and their families to seek legal representation and join the fight against discrimination.”

“The ACLU is making a bold statement by filing this lawsuit on behalf of those who have been victimized by the President’s executive order,” Shegerian says. “Those who have proper visas but were discriminated against need to come forward.”
