CLINIC filed suit on Nov. 22, 2019, to enjoin the implementation of Matter of L-E-A-II, 27 I&N Dec. 581 (A.G. 2019) in credible fear interviews. This suit was filed on behalf of thirteen plaintiffs whose credible fear interviews were denied despite having testified to fear of harm in their home country on the basis of a family connection. Plaintiffs are seeking declaratory and injunctive relief, including an order enjoining the application of guidance based on L-E-A- II to credible and reasonable fear interviews.
