    DC Federal Court Suspends Indiscrimate Detention of Some Asylum Seekers

    On July 2, a federal judge in Washington, DC ordered ICE to stop blanket denials of parole to asylum seekers at five of its Field Offices, and to follow its own internal 2009 Parole Directive which requires individualized determinations of parole applications. In issuing his preliminary injunction, Judge James Boasberg relied on ICE data which RSHC lawyers Mishan Wroe and Yakov Wiegmann had helped obtain in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. The data showed that the five ICE Field Offices are flouting the 2009 Directive, detaining nearly all asylum seekers even when they pose no flight risk or danger to the public.
