New York, NY(Law Firm Newswire) March 20, 2017 – The inaugural episode of Brill Legal Group’s podcast Justice One Client at a Time is now available for free on iTunes.
The 15-minute episode is titled Trump’s Travel Ban and the Courts and features prominent New York criminal defense attorney Peter Brill. In the podcast Brill discusses the constitutionality of President Trump’s recent controversial travel ban and offers insights on how the case could play out in court. He also takes questions from several callers.
Trump signed an executive order in late January that banned all refugees and travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries — Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — from entering the United States. The action resulted in chaos at airports across the country and left many people in limbo. While some individuals were detained in U.S. airports, others were barred from boarding flights overseas. The action also impacted green card holders and those with valid visas.
In the podcast, Brill addresses some of the legal implications of the travel ban against the backdrop of constitutional rights. The executive order has raised concerns about the Trump administration illegally targeting people based on their religion in violation of the First Amendment.
Federal courts have currently placed the travel ban on hold. However, White House officials said they were drafting a new executive order to replace the original one in order to address the issues raised by judges. The second executive order was also put on hold.
Brill is the founder of Brill Legal Group, a criminal defense and disciplinary hearings law firm in New York. With nearly 20 years of experience, Brill is one of only two lawyers in the state to be certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in Criminal Law.
Each episode of Brill Legal Group’s podcast will examine issues that affect people’s rights. To listen to the latest episode, visit iTunes.
