Had many successes from their grant funded cases, including the following positive results:
Preserved protections for individuals seeking asylum involving gender-or gang-based claims contrary to ICE’s narrow reading of the category, “Particular Social Group,” in the immigration statute.
Overturned the Immigration and Custom Enforcement (“ICE”) practice of using directives to local law enforcement to detain alleged noncitizens for pickup by ICE based solely on vague database information without more to support a probable cause determination. Moreno v. Napolitano
Challenged successfully the constitutionality of ICE’s requests to issue arrest requests based on error-ridden data base used in the Central District of California and entered by ICE’s Pacific Enforcement Response Center. Gonzalez v. ICE
A similar successful result was achieved in interpreting similar statutory language related to a protected group. Gonzalez-Ruano v. Barr
