On August 8, 2011, the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a law banning financial campaign contributions from foreigners. The suit was originally brought by two Canadian citizens, who argued that they should be able to contribute to political campaigns since they have visas to legally work and live in the US. Additional cases involving political campaigns and finances have arisen in several other states, including Minnesota and Wisconsin.
