Michael Wildes, immigration attorney to Melania Trump and frequent guest on CNN, Fox and MSNBC, will provide insight into the recent immigration ban passed between the White House and the courts. Is the ban unconstitutional? What is Congress’s role?
What is Trump’s “extreme vetting”? Is there a moral or religious obligation for Jews to help immigrants or refugees from these countries?
Is the ban comparable to Jewish refugees during the Holocaust?

MJE is a non-profit organization that offers social, cultural and spiritual events to a community of young Jewish professionals in their 20s and 30s
