Abner Greene was quoted in the Huffington Post about Donald Trump’s executive order regarding immigrants and refugees.
While the order itself doesn’t mention any religions by name, comments by Trump and others could affect how federal courts interpret the order. Abner Greene, a law professor at Fordham University, said that the Supreme Court has previously struck down ostensibly religion-neutral laws because of the broader context in which the laws were written.
“Trump’s comments are harmful to the administration on this issue,” Greene said. “Stuff he said in the campaign and since taking office would be fair game.”
