I first learned about Hemza Lefsih’s case during Ramadan of this year. I remember discussing the details with my family, asking ourselves how it was possible that someone could go to jail and almost get deported for misunderstanding the definition of citation on an administrative question.
I’m kind of a Mo Amer fan. I have seen two of his standup specials, and recently I watched the first season of Mo on Netflix. I enjoyed it. It’s funny; the characters were realistic and likable; it was easy to watch the whole season in a day or two. It’s easy to relate to their experiences, although sometimes it’s hard to watch – watching the family face the anxiety of their immigration status as asylees
Impact litigation is one of MLFA’s major strategies. In addition to trying to win each individual case, we work for long-term change, attempting to affect the underlying laws and policies.
Our MLFA-funded Constitutional Law Center for Muslims in America (CLCMA) has been recognized and referenced by the legal community for our experience and expertise on Watchlist-related cases.
Our brand is changing.
MLFA has been serving the Muslim community faithfully since 2001. As the world evolves, so do we. In 2022, we are turning over a new leaf. Our brand is changing with us.
Originally, MLFA funded cases one at a time. This case-funding model helped us understand the cases and the issues. However, over time, we looked for ways to conserve time, money, and other resources.
