Ninth circuit reinstates injunction of DHS public charge rule
Injunction narrowed by 9th Cir. Department of Homeland Security lost in the Ninth Circuit in its attempt to undo an injunction requiring Citizenship and Immigration Services to comply with statutory requirements for processing petitions for “Special Juvenile Immigration.” The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld but narrowed the injunction by saying a one-way tolling provision was unreasonably broad. The court may modify the struck tolling provision on remand. The Injunction narrowed by 9th Cir Court of Appeals issued a decision today affirming a permanent injunction. However, in recent years, USCIS allowed a backlog of tens of thousands of cases to emerge.
