  • Tahirih Statement on Preliminary Injunction on Asylum Ban

    The Tahirih Justice Center is relieved that a judge from the San Francisco District Court has issued a preliminary injunction on the asylum ban, forcing the policy to grind to a halt. The decision in San Francisco follows an earlier ruling in the D.C. District Court that allowed the ban to continue. However, today’s ruling in California applies across the country, meaning that the asylum ban must end nationwide, preserving the right of individuals fleeing persecution to seek asylum at our borders.

  • Tahirih Statement on Temporary Restraining Order Ruling on Asylum Ban

    The Tahirih Justice Center is disappointed by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia’s decision to keep the new asylum ban in effect, which bars anyone approaching the U.S. southern border from applying for asylum, with limited exceptions. The rule was initially rolled out by the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security on July 16, 2019 and is being applied at the screening stage at the border as well as in immigration courts.

The rule will be applied at the screening stage at the border as well as in immigration courts. Families, unaccompanied children, survivors of violence – all will be prohibited from obtaining asylum.

  • Tahirih Statement on Temporary Stay Ruling in Remain in Mexico Lawsuit

    The Tahirih Justice Center is disappointed by the decision of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to keep the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy in effect while it reviews the District Court’s preliminary injunction. Despite this temporary setback, Tahirih is hopeful that the Court of Appeals’ ultimate decision will find that the policy is against the rule of law.
