Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Challenge to Denial of Adjustment of Immigration Status
In Cabaccang v. US Citizenship & Imm. Servs., No. 09-56089, an action challenging the denial of plaintiffs' applications for adjustment of immigration status, the court vacated summary judgment for defendants where a district court may not hear an alien's challenge to the government's denial of an application to adjust status when removal proceedings are simultaneously pending against the alien.
As the court wrote: "We must decide whether a district court may hear an alien's challenge to the government's denial of an application to adjust status when removal proceedings are simultaneously
pending against the alien. We hold it may not."
