Case Summary: 3:18-cv-6810-JST
Plaintiffs, represented by the Immigrants Rights Project, seek temporary injunction relief to prevent enforcement of an interim final rule promulgated on November 8, 2018 by the Acting Attorney General and Secretary of Homeland Security. The rule provides that all persons subject to a presidential proclamation concerning the southern border issued pursuant to Immigration and Nationality Act (“INA”) § 212(f), 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f), or INA § 215(a)(1), 8 U.S.C. § 1185(a)(1), are ineligible for asylum. The next day, defendant the President signed a Proclamation entitled “Presidential Proclamation Addressing Mass Migration Through the Southern Border of the United States” that suspends the entry of all persons entering without inspection at the southern border. Plaintiffs seek a declaration that these actions violate the INA and the Administrative Procedure Act and an order enjoining the Proclamation and the rule.
