Case Summary

This is a case about immigration policy that restricted refugee and asylee entry into the United States on account of health concerns around the coronavirus pandemic. On January 12, 2021, families of asylum- and refugee-seekers, who were detained by the Department of Homeland Security, sued the U.S. federal government for humanitarian protection in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. With the spread of coronavirus, on March 20, 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services…

This is a case about immigration policy that restricted refugee and asylee entry into the United States on account of health concerns around the coronavirus pandemic. On January 12, 2021, families of asylum- and refugee-seekers, who were detained by the Department of Homeland Security, sued the U.S. federal government for humanitarian protection in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. With the spread of coronavirus, on March 20, 2020, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) restricted entry of foreign nationals. Under the alleged authority of Title 42 U.S.C. § 265 (“Title 42 Process”), the federal government contended that it had the power to set aside immigration laws and began to summarily expel asylum-seeking families. This policy was renewed multiple times, including on August 2, 2021. The families alleged violations of the Public Health Service Act, Refugee Act, Foreign Affairs Reform and Restructuring Act of 1998, Immigration and Nationality Act, and Administrative Procedure Act. On behalf of the more broadly impacted community (the families estimated more than 21,000 individuals had been subject to the HHS order), the families sought class certification. They also sought a declaration that the Title 42 Process as implemented by the government was unlawful, an injunction preventing the government from applying the Title 42 Process to the class, and reasonable attorneys’ fees.

The case was assigned to Judge Emmett G. Sullivan. On September 16, 2021, the court certified the class and granted the preliminary injunction. Huisha-Huisha v. Mayorkas, 2021 WL 4206688. The class was defined as: "“All noncitizens who (1) are or will be in the United States; (2) come to the United States as a family unit composed of at least one child under 18 years old and that child’s parent or legal guardian; and (3) are or will be subjected to the Title 42 Process.” In certifying the class, the court pushed back on the government’s argument that the class had been insufficiently defined. First, the court asserted that as a matter of law, a “vague and ambiguous class definition” was not automatically fatal to a motion for class certification. Moreover, based on the details provided by the plaintiffs, the court found the class definition sufficient in any case. In ruling for the preliminary injunction, the court highlighted why the families were likely to succeed on the merits. The court first noted that the plain text of Title 42 contained no reference to the word “expel” or other synonyms, suggesting that the statute’s use to remove asylee- and refugee-seekers from the U.S. was untenable. The court also analyzed the statutory context and found it indicated that HHS only had limited “quarantine and containment” powers under the Title 42 Process.

The federal government appealed the decision. On September 30, the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit granted the government’s motion for a stay of the injunction pending appeal. 

Meanwhile, in the district court, the parties submitted several status reports outlining their positions regarding next steps in the litigation. The plaintiffs also filed a Second Amended Complaint, which updated facts that had become outdated (such as the names of defendants) and included the operative Title 42 Order. 

In an opinion issued on March 4, 2022, the D.C. Circuit affirmed the district court’s preliminary injunction against enforcement of the Title 42 Process with respect to the class of plaintiffs. The D.C. Circuit agreed that the plaintiffs were likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that they could not be removed to countries in which they would be persecuted or tortured, pursuant to both the INA and the Convention Against Torture (CAT). The court also held that the district court did not abuse its discretion in determining that plaintiffs would suffer irreparable injury absent a preliminary injunction and that the balance of equities weighed in plaintiffs’ favor. However, the court also found that plaintiffs were not likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that they could not be expelled from the country before they had an opportunity to apply for asylum – nonetheless, this argument would still deserve attention from the district court when it considered the merits. 

Back in the district court, the parties submitted an additional joint status report on March 25, 2022. The report stated that the CDC was going to conduct a reassessment of the Title 42 Process, and that the outcome of the potentially modified order may influence the parties’ respective recommendations for next steps in this litigation. The CDC issued its report on April 1, 2022, which announced the end of the Title 42 Process, concluding that current public health conditions and an increased availability of tools to fight COVID-19 rendered the order unnecessary. The termination would be implemented on May 23, 2022. As of April 2022, the parties continue to evaluate possible next steps in the litigation, if any.

This case is ongoing.

MINUTE ORDER granting, over objection, 28 Emergency Motion to Stay Removal. Although the government notes in its 30 Response that, on January 31, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ("D.C. Circuit") stayed the class-wide preliminary injunction in P.J.E.S. v. Wolf, No. 20-cv-2245 (D.D.C.), see Order, P.J.E.S. v. Pekoske, No. 20-5357 (D.C. Cir. Jan. 29, 2021), the government does not, and cannot, argue that the D.C. Circuit's order requires denial of 28 Emergency Motion to Stay Removal because the D.C. Circuit's order is not published and was issued without opinion or reasoning. Accordingly, in view of the arguments presented by Plaintiffs, and for the reasons stated on the record at the January 12, 2021 Status Conference, it is hereby ORDERED that the removals of the following six families are STAYED pending further order of this Court: Evens Fils Aime (SID 369-703-977), Shnaidere Altenord (SID 369-703-992), and their minor child A.F.A.A. (SID 369-704-002); Rijkaard Ladouceur (SID 369-690-928), Miralia Fleurima (SID 369-690-930), and their minor children N.F. (SID 369-690-940) and B.R.L.F. (SID 369-690-944); Frenzy Joseph Louis (SID 369-627-368), Rose Maria Bien-Aime (SID 369-627-371), and their minor child H.G.L. (SID 369-627-374); Djimytoo Myrtil (SID 369-705-242), Lunda Odilus (SID 369-705-228), and their minor child M.Y.M.O. (SID 369-705-252); Eric Lenes Sabino (SID 369-694-161), Elisandra de Lima Borges (SID 369-694-170), and their minor children K.C.S.B. (SID 369-694-176) and K.V.S.B. (SID 369-694-183); Josimar Santos de Paula (SID 369-695-923), and his minor child K.V.S.D.P. (SID 369- 695-934). Signed by Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on 2/1/2021. (lcegs3)
