AILA Doc. No. 19070332 | Dated August 9, 2019 | File Size: 849 KDownload the Document
The American Immigration Council, and its partners, the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project and the ACLU, issued FAQs after a district court judge issued a decision modifying an existing preliminary injunction in Padilla v. U.S., requiring immigration courts to provide bond hearings.
This update addresses the Ninth Circuit's July 22, 2019, decision declining to stay the portion of the preliminary injunction requiring bond hearings for class members, but staying the portion of the decision requiring bond hearings within seven days of a request and procedural protection for asylum seekers in bond hearings.
At this time, the immigration courts must provide bond hearings for class members, but need not implement the timeline and procedural protections mandated by the original injunction.
