September 29, 2021 (1 min read)

Rai v. Biden

"[T]he court will order Defendants to undertake good faith efforts to expeditiously process and adjudicate 2021 diversity visa applications and derivative beneficiary applications by September 30, 2021, and to reserve 966 diversity visa numbers of applicants awaiting adjudication at the twenty-seven embassies and posts previously subject to Proclamations 9984 and 10143 and Defendants’ regional No-Visa Policy. ... The court GRANTS Plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction on their claims that the regional No-Visa Policy violates the APA because it is contrary to law, in excess of statutory authority, arbitrary, and capricious, and that Defendants unreasonably delayed and unlawfully withheld processing and adjudication of Plaintiffs’ applications."
