CA9 Temporarily Stays Own Block on 'Remain in Mexico' Asylum Rule: Innovation Law Lab v. Wolf

Innovation Law Lab v. Wolf

"Plaintiffs brought suit in district court seeking an injunction against the Government’s recently promulgated Migrant Protection Protocols (“MPP”), under which non-Mexican asylum seekers who present themselves at our southern border are required to wait in Mexico while their asylum applications are adjudicated. The district court entered a preliminary injunction setting aside the MPP, and the Government appealed. We affirm."

[NOTE: On the same day, the Ninth Circuit granted the government's motion for a stay, ordering the government to file a brief by the end of Monday, March 2, 2020 and petitioners by the end of Tuesday, March 3, 2020.]
