Is Soros The Source Of Funds Behind The “Muslim Ban” Lawsuits?

Is Soros The Source Of Funds Behind The “Muslim Ban” Lawsuits?

by Tyler Durden

More than a dozen lawsuits and counting have been filed against President Donald Trump’s executive order that temporarily blocks visas from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia and Yemen.  As of last Friday, one such lawsuit heard by Federal District Judge James Robart, a Bush appointee, in Seattle effectively blocked the enforcement of the executive order nationwide (see here for details: “Judge Blocks Trump Travel Ban Nationwide; White House Vows To Challenge ‘Outrageous Order’“).

Of course, mounting this scale of legal crusade is extremely costly, a concern which, as we noted last week, was seemingly alleviated by a massive surge in contributions to the American Civil Liberties Union.  According to theWashington Post, the lawsuits filed by the ACLU prompted a tidal wave of donations which totaled over $24 million in a single weekend, or roughly 6 times the organization’s average annual donation tally.

 

But raising that kind of money that quickly is difficult to do at $20 a pop.  Which is why we weren’t terribly surprised to see a note from LifeZette this morning confirming what is likely implicitly understood by most people already, namely that the lawsuits filed against Trump’s immigration executive order largely stem from organizations bankrolled by billionaire leftist George Soros and Democratic state attorneys general.

According to LifeZette and the Capital Research Center, Soros’s Open Society Institute has given over $35 million to the ACLU alone and millions more to other liberal organizations directly involved in filing lawsuits all around the country.
