Grace v. Barr
CGRS announces the release of a new practice advisory co-authored with the ACLU on Grace v. Barr, which challenged various policies created by Matter of A-B- and accompanying United States and Citizenship and Immigration Services Policy Memorandum as applied in credible fear proceedings. On July 17, 2020, the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit affirmed in part and reversed in part a permanent injunction issued by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. This advisory provides a summary of the D.C. Circuit’s opinion and its impact on the injunction entered by the District Court. It also offers practical guidance on the impact of the Grace litigation for asylum seekers at the credible fear interview stage and before the asylum office and the Executive Office for Immigration Review.
