The National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) led 62 affiliated national and local Asian Pacific American bar associations, including ABAS, in filing an amicus brief in Trump v. State of Hawaii (No. 17-965), to be argued before the United States Supreme Court on April 25, 2018. Together, these Asian Pacific American bar associations urged the Court to support the injunction of President Trump’s Sept. 24, 2017, revised executive order barring refugees and individuals from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
While we are naturally disappointed that the President missed an opportunity to make history by nominating the first Asian Pacific American to the Supreme Court, Asian/Pacific Bar Association of Sacramento joins NAPABA as one of 54 national, state, and local Asian Pacific American bar associations urging Senate leaders to hold a timely vote on any upcoming candidates nominated to fill the current vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.
