Soros Fingerprints All Over Anti-Trump Lawsuits

Billionaire leftist teams up with Democrat attorneys

 general to bury administration in legal challenges

More than a dozen lawsuits and counting have been filed against
President Donald Trump’s executive order that temporarily blocks
 visas from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen.
 Looking beyond the handful of emotional personal stories that are
 gaining the media’s sympathy, there is a more predictable political
 power dynamic at play. The lawsuits largely stem from organizations
 bankrolled by billionaire leftist George Soros and Democratic state
 attorneys general.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has carried out
a political vendetta against Trump, led 15 other state attorneys general
 in a joint statement condemning what they called an “unconstitutional,
 un-American and unlawful executive order.” The Democratic AGs
also said, “Religious liberty has been, and always will be, a bedrock
principle of our country and no president can change that truth,” a
curious statement from the party that targeted the Little Sisters of
 the Poor.
“It shouldn’t surprise anyone that pressure groups funded by George Soros are litigating to keep U.S. ports-of-entry wide open to terrorists and other people who hate America … Soros has said he wants to bring America down.”
Last August, George Soros’ son, Alex Soros, posted a picture of himself with Schneiderman on Instagram, and wrote, “Great to meet with #newyork attorney general @ericschneiderman who recognized that @realdonaldtrump was a fraud way before many and has courageously taken him on!”

A story about family and identity. Love and loss. The future and the past.

Schneiderman, as well as Democratic attorneys general in Virginia and Massachusetts, intervened in existing lawsuits. The lawsuit brought by Washington State Attorney General Robert Ferguson has achieved the most success, bringing the case that blocked the order nationwide.
The lawsuit convinced a federal judge of the state’s standing on the claim
 the order is “separating Washington families, harming thousands of
Washington residents, damaging Washington’s economy, hurting
Washington-based companies and undermining Washington’s
sovereign interest in remaining a welcoming place for immigrants
 and refugees.”

Democrats are even raising money off the lawsuits. In a Facebook
post, the Democratic Attorneys General Association said, "Stand
with Attorney General Bob Ferguson and all Democratic State
Attorneys General fighting for what's right!" It added, "Chip in to
support Democratic AGs fighting for progressive rights and freedoms."
Outside of the politicians, Soros' Open Society Foundations, which
 advocates for open borders, is financing several advocacy groups
 that initiated litigation against the order.
Leading the way in these lawsuits in several states is the American
Civil Liberties Union, which has gotten at least $35.5 million from
the Open Society Foundations, according to the Capital Research
Center, a Washington think tank that investigates nonprofits.
Soros also gave $4.6 million to the National Immigration Law
 Center, which has been involved in litigation, according to the
 CRC; and $621,000 to the Urban Justice Center, which has an
appendage known as the International Refugee Assistance Project
 that has jumped into the lawsuits, according to the CRC.

"It shouldn't surprise anyone that pressure groups funded by George Soros are litigating to keep U.S. ports-of-entry wide open to terrorists and other people who hate America," Matthew
Vadum, senior vice president of the CRC, told LifeZette. "Soros
has said he wants to bring America down. Flooding the country
 with Muslim aliens who won't assimilate is one way to do that."
In a Seattle suit, separate from the Washington State case, ABC
News reported the American Immigration Council, the Northwest
 Immigrant Rights Project, and the National Immigration Project
 of the National Lawyers Guild filed a class action complaint on
 behalf of lawful permanent residents that want their immediate
family members that are citizens of the seven countries be able to
 enter the United States.
Soros' Open Society Foundations gave $425,000 to the American
 Immigration Council from 2011 through 2013, according to the
 CRC, which shows Soros' group also gave at least $50,000 to
 the National Lawyers Guild.
The fact that a lawsuit is politically motivated doesn't mean it
 lacks legal merits. Republican attorneys general and conservative
 groups challenged the Obama administration's executive actions.
 But as the media plays up emotional stories, no one should try to
 divorce politics from these legal maneuvers.
