CU and CUF File Amicus Brief in American Legion's Bladensburg Cross Case

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation have joined forces with other conservative groups in urging the Supreme Court to review and reverse a ruling by the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which held that the Bladensburg Memorial Cross, which has stood on public ground for over 100 years, is an unconstitutional entanglement between government and religion.  Our amicus brief supports The American Legion's call for clarification of the "confused state" of the Supreme Court’s Establishment Clause jurisprudence.  More specifically, we urge the Court to abandon the framework derived from its 1971 decision in Lemon v. Kurtzman  and apply, instead, "an interpretive test that is suited to the original text of the Establishment Clause."

CU & CUF Statement: Supreme Court Upholds President Trump’s Travel Ban Proclamation

The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 ruling, has upheld President Trump's travel ban proclamation.  The Court rejected the claim that the ban exceeds the President's statutory authority under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act ("INA"), concluding: "The Proclamation is squarely within the scope of the President's authority under the INA." 

The Court also said the Plaintiffs were unlikely to prevail on their claim that the ban violates the 1st Amendment's Establishment Clause because it disfavors the Muslim religion. In matters involving immigration and national security, the Court said that even where there is "extrinsic evidence" of religious hostility, the policy will be upheld "so long as it can reasonably be understood to result from a justification independent of unconstitutional grounds." The Court concluded the Plaintiffs were unlikely to prove their case under that standard, stating: "The Proclamation is expressly premised on legitimate purposes: preventing entry of nationals who cannot be adequately vetted and inducing other nations to improve their practices. The text says nothing about religion."

Citizens United and Citizens United Foundation are proud to have supported the President's travel ban executive order from the very beginning in amicus briefs at various federal courts including the Supreme Court.

CU FOIA to State Department 06.22.2018 by Citizens United on Scribd


ACLU and Citizens United agree: the government is withholding too much information

Roll Call: ACLU, Citizens United call for better access to government information

Government transparency could be getting even worse, according to Citizens United and the American Civil Liberties Union.

"I think the state of transparency is getting worse in a lot of respects and it’s not just Freedom of Information Act requests. We're seeing systemic efforts by the government to withhold information from the public," Neema Guliani, the ACLU's legislative counsel, told the Hill.TV's "Rising" on Monday.

The ACLU shares a common goal with the conservative Citizens United in gaining better access to government information.

The groups, which have opposing views on multiple issues, have both run into problems from the government when seeking information through Freedom of Information Act requests.

In one instance, Citizens United Chief General Counsel Michael Boos said the State Department told the group it would take "40 to 50 years" to fulfill the organizations’s request.

Boos blames the government's failure to update its system for processing these information requests.

"The government process of dealing with Freedom of Information Act requests has not kept up with technology. The State Department is using antiquated technology," Boos said.

Guliani thinks the government's inability to keep up with information requests prevents policymakers and organizations alike from making informed decisions on key issues. It also leaves many Americans unaware of what’s really going on inside Washington, she said.
