Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
In an action seeking an order compelling officials of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to approve a spousal immigrant visa petition, and to set aside the agency's revocation of a previously approved immigrant worker visa petition, dismissal of Egyptian petitioner's action is affirmed where the court correctly concluded that it lacked jurisdiction to review revocation of petitioner's I-140 immigrant worker visa, as the Secretary of Homeland Security has the discretion to revoke the approval of the petition and is not subject to judicial review under 8 U.S.C. section 1155.
