Document Posting Date

This notice provides information about the preliminary injunction orders issued by the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California (the Court) in Al Otro Lado v. Mayorkas. This notice applies to noncitizens who (1) are not Mexican citizens or nationals, (2) sought to enter the United States through a land port of entry on the U.S.-Mexico border before July 16, 2019, to seek asylum (3) but, due to “metering” at the port of entry, were not able to cross the border to enter the United States until on or after July 16, 2019, and (4) would still like to pursue asylum in the United States. Such noncitizens are preliminary-injunction class members (PI Class Members) in the Al Otro Lado class action lawsuit, and the Court’s preliminary injunction prevents the U.S. government from applying a rule limiting asylum eligibility known as the “third-country transit rule” to their asylum claims.
