NWIRP Wins Preliminary Injunction Against EOIR Cease-and-Desist Letter


Yesterday, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington converted its temporary restraining order (TRO) into a preliminary injunction, which prohibits the enforcement of 8 CFR §1003.102(t) against Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) and other nonprofit organizations who self-identify and disclose their assistance on pro se filings. The court had issued a nationwide TRO on May 17, 2017, enjoining EOIR from enforcing a cease-and-desist letter ordering NWIRP not to provide immigrants with any legal assistance in connection with matters before EOIR without entering Form EOIR-28, and from issuing such letters to other organizations.
