Immigration Help When You Need It Most

Asylum Ruling for Victims of Abuse Halted by Federal Court

The Trump administration policies aimed at restricting asylum claims by people citing domestic violence or gang abuse in their home country were halted by the federal court and ordered the U.S. government to bring back six deported migrants to reconsider their cases.

U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan put a permanent injunction on former Attorney General Sessions’ order, saying it violated U.S. immigration law and that there “is no legal basis for an effective categorical ban.”

Under U.S. law, newly arrived immigrants who express fear of returning to their homes must be given a screening interview to determine credible fear. Those who pass the interview are allowed to pursue their asylum claims in immigration court.

Judge Sullivan blocked the government from “removing plaintiffs who are currently in the United States without first providing credible fear determinations consistent with the immigration laws.” He also ordered that the plaintiffs who had been deported be returned and given new credible fear interviews.

You must also be able to understand the attorney. The attorney must either speak a language you understand or have a competent interpreter that will allow you to understand what the attorney is saying.
