Lee Gelernt

Deputy director of the ACLU’s national Immigrants’ Rights Project. He presented the first challenge to President Trump’s travel ban order last year. His argument resulted in a nationwide injunction. Earlier this week, he presented arguments in a case involving 1,400 Iraqis slated for deportation. He is also lead counsel in the ACLU’s case challenging the administration’s practice of separating asylum-seeking parents from their small children, some as young as 18 months.
