Adding 1st Amendent, RFRA to fight against “extreme vetting”: Complaint in Massachusetts Federal Court annotated

Late yesterday, another complaint was filed seeking injunctive relief against the executive orders prohibiting reentry into the US of lawful US residents who are also foreign nationals from certain countries. Below is the complaint filed in federal district court in Massachusetts, annotated by me to highlight legal bases for declaring these orders unconstitutional and unlawful that were not already asserted in other complaints filed, such as the one in federal court in New York. The Massachusetts complaint asserts that the EOs violate the First Amendment and the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. By providing additional bases for overturning the EOs, this complaint paves the way for the broadest possible number of objections to be considered by higher courts in the upcoming fights over the final status of the orders.
