CA9 Upholds Stay of Asylum Rule...in CA9 Only

East Bay Sanctuary Covenant v. Barr

"Appellants seek a stay pending appeal of the district court’s July 24, 2019 order preliminarily enjoining the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland Security’s joint interim final rule, “Asylum Eligibility and Procedural Modifications” (the “Rule”), 84 Fed. Reg. 33,829 (July 16, 2019). ... we deny the motion for stay pending appeal (Docket Entry No. 3) insofar as the injunction applies within the Ninth Circuit.  We grant the motion for stay pending appeal insofar as the injunction applies outside the Ninth Circuit, because the nationwide scope of the injunction is not supported by the record as it stands."
