The Issue

The No Fly List is a system implemented by the United States government to ensure airline safety. However, many Muslim Americans have found themselves unfairly labeled as risks to airline safety without any warning or explanation. This means they are prevented from boarding airplanes, even though they pose no actual threat.

Muslim Americans facing this issue often experience significant disruptions to their lives. They may be unable to travel for important personal or professional reasons, such as visiting loved ones or attending important events. This can lead to emotional distress, financial burdens, and a sense of isolation.

To address this specific issue, the Muslim Legal Fund of America (MLFA) plays a crucial role. MLFA’s legal division represents numerous clients who have been unfairly placed on the No Fly List. MLFA advocates for these individuals, using administrative challenges and lawsuits to compel the government to provide reasons for their inclusion on the list. Through our efforts, MLFA has successfully helped more than a dozen clients get removed from the No Fly List, restoring their rights and freedoms.

MLFA’s expertise in dealing with this issue lies in their deep understanding of the legal framework surrounding the No Fly List. We have built a strong track record of advocating for their clients’ rights, ensuring that the government is held accountable for its actions. MLFA is dedicated to providing legal support and relief to Muslim Americans who have been unjustly targeted and placed on the No Fly List.


These cases demonstrate the variety of individuals affected by the No Fly List, ranging from a grandmother in need of medical treatment to a 12-year-old boy who was unable to fly with his family. MLFA’s work encompasses diverse situations and strives to bring justice and equality to those impacted by this issue.
