ABOUT THE CASE

 In Darchini v. Pompeo, 14 Iranian American families are challenging the U.S. Government’s unreasonable administrative delays in adjudicating case-by-case waivers of under the travel ban. Challenged policies include the U.S. Government’s designating the authority and discretion to approve case-by-case waivers to individual consular officers to consular managers, visa chiefs, consular section chiefs, consular management and Visa Office, which is unlawful under Presidential Proclamation 9645, §3(C) ("PP 9645"). Plaintiffs in this action are U.S. citizens, Legal Permanent Residents, and their Iranian national relatives or fiancées who were visa applicants that had been denied timely adjudication of case-by-case PP 9645 waivers. Some families have waited in excess of 600 days.
