Victory in Lawsuit Challenging the Use of Border Patrol to Conduct Credible Fear Interviews

Judge Leon in the District Court of the District of Columbia issued a preliminary injunction prohibiting the deportation of families and the use of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents to screen asylum seekers for their ‘credible fear’ of persecution while a lawsuit remains pending. Tahirih filed the lawsuit on March 27, 2020 on behalf of women and children currently detained at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas.

Tahirih has also sought information on this clandestine policy through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to compel the government to release records on this troubling practice.
