Challenging Customs and Border Protection’s Unlawful

immigration court

The Southern District Court of California ruled in Al Otro Lado, Inc., et al. v. Mayorkas, et al. that it was unlawful for the defendants to deny inspection or asylum processing to noncitizens who have not been admitted or paroled and who are in the process of arriving in the United States at Class A Ports of Entry (POEs). However, the court also concluded that the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in Garland v. Aleman Gonzalez prevented it from issuing an injunction against the defendants and cautioned that the Supreme Court’s ruling would allow immigration enforcement agencies to “rapaciously scale back rights.”
