TOMORROW: ACLU in Federal Appeals Court for Arguments in Forced Return to Mexico and Asylum Ban Lawsuits
CONTACT: Inga Sarda-Sorensen, 212-284-7347, isarda-sorensen@aclu.org
The American Civil Liberties Union will be in federal appeals court in San Francisco on Tuesday, October 1, for arguments in two separate challenges to Trump administration anti-immigrant policies.
Both cases are being heard on the same day by the same Ninth Circuit panel in a session that begins at 9 a.m. PT/noon ETLivestream details: https://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/media/live_oral_arguments.php
U.S. Circuit Judges Ferdinand Fernandez, William Fletcher, and Richard Paez will preside. The location is the James R. Browning U.S. Courthouse, Courtroom 1, 3rd Floor (Room 338), 95 7th St., San Francisco.
The cases are:
  • Innovation Law Lab v. McAleenan (Forced Return to Mexico)
    This case challenges the Trump administration's policy forcing asylum-seekers to return to Mexico and remain there indefinitely while their asylum applications are processed in the United States.

    U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg issued a 
    preliminary injunction in April 2019. In May, a Ninth Circuit panel granted the administration's request to temporarily allow the policy to take effect as the government appeals the preliminary injunction. So far, some 45,000 asylum-seekers have been stranded in Mexico under the policy.

    ACLU attorney Judy Rabinovitz will argue the appeal.

    The ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center, and Center for Gender & Refugee Studies brought the case on behalf of 11 individual asylum-seekers forcibly returned to Mexico and organizational plaintiffs Innovation Law Lab, the Central American Resource Center of Northern California, Centro Legal de la Raza, the University of San Francisco School of Law Immigration and Deportation Defense Clinic, Al Otro Lado, and the Tahirih Justice Center.
     
  • East Bay Sanctuary Covenant v. Trump (Asylum Ban I)
    This case challenges the asylum ban announced in a presidential proclamation and Department of Homeland Security regulation on November 9, 2018. The ban would restrict asylum applications to ports of entry.

    U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar issued a 
    preliminary injunction in December 2018 that remains in effect. The court is considering the government's appeal of that ruling.

    ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt will argue the appeal.


    The lawsuit was filed by the ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center, and Center for Constitutional Rights on behalf of East Bay Sanctuary Covenant, Al Otro Lado, Innovation Law Lab, and the Central American Resource Center in Los Angeles.

For whatever reason--whether the ACLU knows which judges to go to,or they prepare better,or the laws now favor illegals--they have been handing our(?) country its lunch in the courts.They're damn good and as persistent as a bee around flowers.
The question mark raises a valid query:Whose country is it anymore?
