Immigration lawyers and advocates from leading progressive groups funded by George Soros were part of lawsuits filed Saturday to stop President Trump’s “extreme vetting” executive order.
The executive order contains a few goals. The first goal of the order is to suspend visas for travel from 7 countries, Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Libya, and Syria.
The second goal is to indefinitely block refugees from Syria and limit refugees from all countries to just 50,000 for all of 2017.
These measures under the executive order are intended to be temporary, while the administration designs strong systems for the vetting of visitors and refugees coming to the United States.
While several thousand people traveling at the time of the ban were suddenly stuck in airports, one case quickly found support from Soros allies.

Lawyers flooded New York’s JFK airport Saturday morning seeking to have their clients, two Iraqi refugees, released.
A legal suit now filed alleges that the men were being unlawfully detained at points of entry. The men were successful in getting a stay from a U.S. Federal Court in Brooklyn, but the Department of Homeland Security is still enforcing the order.
The most notable groups behind the suit are the International Refugee Assistance Project, the National Immigration Law Center, and the Urban Justice and the American Civil Liberties Union. They all have Soros connections.
The International Refugee Assistance Project’s executive director, Taryn Higashi, sits on the board of Soros’ Open Society Foundation. The American Civil Liberties Union, the National Immigration Law Center, and the Urban Justice Center are all underwritten — to the tune of tens of millions of dollars — by Soros’ Open Society Foundation.
A Soros connection to an open borders campaign is nothing new. In 2014, The New York Times reported that Soros had spent almost $80 million advocating for open borders and lax immigration laws since just 2004.
