Firm Files Amicus Brief on Behalf of National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council 119

January 25, 2021

On January 22, the Firm filed an amicus brief in the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council 119, the union representing United States asylum officers, in Wolf v. Innovation Law Lab. In this case, plaintiffs challenged the Trump Administration’s Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), which required most asylum seekers arriving at the southern border to return to Mexico to wait for their asylum hearing. The Firm’s brief argued that the MPP violates our nation’s longstanding history of providing a safe haven to the persecuted as re-affirmed by our statutory and treaty obligations to not return migrants to a country where they may be persecuted or tortured.
