The Zionist Organization of America has filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in support of President Donald Trump's most recent ban on travel from a number of predominately Muslim countries.
The group, which has been an outspoken supporter of many of Trump's policies, in its brief said the action did not amount to a "Muslim ban" or violate the Constitution. On Wednesday, ZOA released a statement announcing its Feb. 28 filing of the brief.
ZOA cited terror attacks by immigrants in Boston, San Bernardino, Orlando and Manhattan, as well as Europe, in its defense of the executive order.
"The six Muslim majority countries affected by the Proclamation are marked by combat zones and infested with terrorist groups and sympathizers," the group's president, Morton Klein, said in the statement.
