Briefs Are Filed; Decision Soon — In Latest “East Bay III” Case… From Able USDC Judge Jon S. Tigar, In Oakland.

It is [in my opinion] highly likely that Judge Tigar will keep his nationwide preliminary injunction, against the latest Trumpian border cruelty, in place.

Here is the full nine page brief — and a bit:

. . . .Ultimately, the government rests on the same unsuccessful arguments it made in opposing Plaintiffs’ request for preliminary injunctive relief: that 8 U.S.C. § 1158 does not “on its face” forbid the Attorney General from considering transit through a third country when exercising his discretion to grant asylum, and that the Rule “complements” the firm resettlement and safe third country provisions, which are “concerned with different classes of aliens.” Stay Mot. 6; see also PI Opp. 8-9, 13. The Court already rejected these arguments, see PI Order 21-26, and the government offers no basis to revisit that conclusion. . . .

There was also an update, in the Title X cases — I’ll get to that tonight, most likely. But now. . . tacos chant my name. Sweet and low, they call my name — but chanting, they are — just the same. Onward.
