Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Herrera-Molina v. Holder, No. 07-0985, involved a petition for review of a February 23, 2007 decision of the United States Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("ICE"), reinstating a prior order of deportation.
As the court of appeals wrote: "Petitioner William Herrera-Molina seeks review of a February 2007 decision of the United States Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("ICE"), reinstating a prior order of deportation for illegal entry, entered in July 1985 against Herrera-Molina. The first issue before us is whether the reinstatement of removal statute, section 241(a)(5) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act ("INA"), as added by section 305(a)(3) of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 ("IIRIRA"), 8 U.S.C. § 1231(a)(5), is impermissibly retroactive as applied to Herrera-Molina, an alien who illegally reentered the United States and married a United States citizen prior to the statute's enactment."
