Case Summary

On February 14, 2019, a group of asylum seekers from Central America and several legal organizations filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The plaintiffs sued the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The plaintiffs, represented by the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies, sought declaratory and injunctiv…

On February 14, 2019, a group of asylum seekers from Central America and several legal organizations filed this lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The plaintiffs sued the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The plaintiffs, represented by the ACLU, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies, sought declaratory and injunctive relief, claiming violations of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).

The plaintiffs challenged the Trump Administration’s new policy of forcing asylum seekers to return to Mexico while they await their removal proceedings: the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP). The plaintiff individual asylum seekers are currently residing in Mexico after having entered the U.S. to request asylum, and then been returned to Mexico under the MPP. The plaintiffs alleged that these asylum seekers are living in fear in Mexico, and that the plaintiff legal organizations are being thwarted from providing representation to such asylum seekers by the physical removal of them from the U.S.

The case was initially assigned to Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero, and then reassigned to Judge Richard Seeborg on Feb. 19.

On Feb. 20, 2019, the plaintiffs filed a motion for a temporary restraining order, seeking to enjoin the MPP until a preliminary injunction could be obtained. The plaintiffs alleged that the MPP violate the section of the INA that purportedly authorizes them, violated the U.S.’s duty of non-return, constituted arbitrary and capricious decision making under the APA, and violated the APA’s notice and comment requirements. The defendants filed their response on March 1. The judge held a hearing on the motion on March 22. On March 28, 2019, the judge issued an order requesting expedited further briefing on the issue of whether jurisdiction of this case lies exclusively in the District of Columbia.

On April 8, 2019, Judge Seeborg issued an order granting the plaintiffs' motion for a preliminary injunction. 366 F. Supp. 3d 1110. The judge found that the INA section vesting DHS with the authority in some circumstances to return certain aliens to a contiguous territory (8 USC § 1225(b)(2)(C)) could not be read to apply to the plaintiff asylum seekers or others similarly situated. Additionally, he found that even if that statute could be applied to the plaintiffs, the MPP still need to be enjoined because they fail to sufficiently protect immigrants from being returned to places where their lives or freedom are at risk (in violation of the U.S.'s non-refoulement obligations). Judge Seeborg therefore enjoined the defendants from implementing the MPP nationwide and ordered that the named individual plaintiffs be permitted to enter the U.S.

The defendants appealed the order to the Ninth Circuit and requested a stay of the preliminary injunction pending the appeal. On May 7, 2019, the Ninth Circuit granted a stay of the injunction. 924 F.3d 503. The panel found that the defendants were likely to prevail on the merits of the plaintiffs' INA and APA claims. It stated that the plaintiff asylum seekers were properly subjected to the contiguous-territory provision of the INA, and that the MPP were exempt from the notice-and-comment requirement because they are general statements of policy.

On July 15, 2019, the district court agreed to stay proceedings in the case until the Ninth Circuit appeal was resolved.

On February 28, 2020, the Ninth Circuit affirmed the district court's nationwide injunction of the Migrant Protection Protocols. 951 F.3d 1073. The Court found that the plaintiffs were likely to succeed on the merits of their INA claims because the INA's contiguous territory return provision does not apply to bona fide asylum seekers, and that the MPP do not comply with the U.S.'s treaty-based non-return obligations codified in the INA. The Court also found that the nationwide scope of the preliminary injunction, which in practical effect would operate in only the four states along the southern border where the MPP are enforced, was warranted.

However, that same day, the government filed an emergency motion requesting either a stay pending disposition of a petition for certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court, or an immediate administrative stay. The Ninth Circuit granted an administrative stay that evening and requested expedited briefing by the parties addressing the government's request for a longer stay.

On March 4, 2020, the Ninth Circuit granted in part and denied in part the requested stay. 951 F.3d 1073. The Ninth Circuit denied the stay with respect to the merits of its February 28 holding that the MPP violate federal law. However, it issued a stay of the injunction insofar as it operates outside the boundaries of the Ninth Circuit; this stay was set to begin on March 12.

On March 11, 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an order halting the Ninth Circuit's injunction of the MPP. 140 S.Ct. 1564. Consequently, the MPP remains in effect nationwide.

On April 10, 2020, the government filed a petition for certiorari with the Supreme Court. On October 19, 2020, the Supreme Court granted cert. 140 S.Ct. 1564. However, DHS announced on January 20, 2021, that it would stop enrolling people into MPP, and on June 1, 2021, that it would terminate the program. As such, the asylum procedure became moot and the Ninth Circuit's judgment was vacated on June 21, 2021. 

However, the District Court for the Northern District of Texas issued a nationwide injunction in Texas et al. v. Biden on August 13, 2021, requiring the Biden administration to restart the MPP program. The Supreme Court declined to stay the injunction, and DHS indicated its intent to appeal a denial to stay the injunction while agreeing to comply with the order in good faith.

On January 14, 2022, the court granted a request to hold the Order to Show Cause, originally issued on August 6, 2021, in abeyance. This hold was renewed on May 16, 2022, allowing the parties more time to continue to confer regarding outstanding issues presented by the case, including whether settlement is possible and how this case should proceed. This Court has not yet addressed the June 30, 2022 Supreme Court decision in Biden v. Texas that held that the government’s rescission of MPP did not violate Section 1225 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, and the then-Secretary of Homeland Security’s Oct. 29 memoranda constituted valid final agency action.
