A federal judge in California issued a nationwide injunction Tuesday, blocking U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) from implementing a rule to significantly increase immigration filing fees. The rule had been set to take effect Friday, Oct. 2.
Background: USCIS published the final version of the rule in August. Later that month, the American Immigration Lawyers Association and several nonprofit organizations filed suit to block the regulation from taking effect. Judge White did not rule on the merits of the case, but issued the injunction to stop the rule from taking effect while litigation continues.
BAL Analysis: The fee rule will not take effect while the injunction is in place. BAL continues to follow the litigation and will alert clients to important developments.
