Amicus briefs have been a part of the United States of America's legal system since the nineteenth (19th) century.

Volunteers with proper authorization are sought to pay for (financially sponsor) and file an amicus curiae brief on behalf of H-1B Cap-Exempt Employers such as

1) institutions of higher education,

2) related or affiliated nonprofit entities,

3) nonprofit research organizations like, Inc., or

4) city, county, state, or federal governmental research organizations

or entities that sponsor nonimmigrant visas such as B-1 Business Visitor Visa

to amplify or supplement the main legal and factual arguments presented by the STATE OF WASHINGTON, et al., Plaintiffs-Appellees, v. DONALD J. TRUMP, et al., Defendants-Appellants.


Executive Order 13769 dated January 27, 2017 affects an H-1B Cap-Exempt Employer's ability to host startups lead by nonimmigrant founders from the seven countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen) "at facilities controlled by a 501(c)(3) entity", for example, that would not otherwise be a qualifying institution(s) for the H-1B temporary worker visa. Additionally, nonprofit research organizations like, Inc. would be prevented from inviting foreign nationals to the United States of America (USA) on a nonimmigrant B-1 Business Business Visitor Visa: 1) to consult with business associates, 2) to undertake independent research, 3) to participate in scientific, educational, professional, orbusiness conventions, conferences, or seminars, 4) to be participants in a voluntary service program 5) to participate in a medical elective that "affords practical experience and instruction in the various disciplines of medicine under the supervision and direction of faculty physicians at a U.S. medical school’s hospital as an approved part of the student’s foreign medical training.
The business formation rate per month among immigrants is 0.62 percent (or 620 out of 100,000). Quote by Robert W. Fairlie, Ph.D. Economic Consulting Santa Cruz, CA 95060 (May 2012)
More than 40 percent of the 2010 Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or their children. Even though immigrants have made up only 10.5 percent of the population in the United States of America (USA) on average since 1850, there are 90 immigrant-founded Fortune 500 companies, accounting for 18 percent of the list. quote dated Jul 6, 2011.
The three (3) panel judges' decision will not determine whether President Trump's Executive Order is constitutional. The court will decide whether an emergency hold should remain in force against the order against Muslim-majority nations until the constitutional issues are decided. If POTUS loses, an appeal is expected to be filed with the United States Supreme Court., Inc. expects to use an amicus curiae brief to "apprise the court of broad-based legal, social, and economic implications of a decision or point out its unintended consequences for a group not before the court."

Usually, an individual may represent him or herself in court (known as appearing " in propia persona "). However, this right does not extend to corporations or non-profit associations. See Merco Construction Engineers, Inc. v. Municipal Court , 21 Cal. 3d 724, 147 Cal. Rptr. 631 (1978) (overturning a law that allowed officers and employees of a corporation to represent the corporations). See also, Clean Air Transport Systems v. San Mateo County Transit District , 198 Cal. App. 3d 576, 578-579, 243 Cal. Rptr. 799, 800-801 (1st Dist. 1988) (preventing an individual from representing a non-profit association, even when she did not hold herself out to be an attorney and did not charge for the service, and rejecting arguments relating to the first amendment), rev. denied (4/27/88), cert. denied , 488 U.S. 862, 109 S. Ct. 160, 102 L. Ed. 2d 130 (1988).

In light of this, the best approach is to have all communications to a court on behalf of an organization or government agency prepared and signed by an attorney., Inc. supports the argument the Court should deny Appellants’ motion to overturn the temporary restraining order (TRO).
