KAYVAN V POMPEO (CAND #5:19-cv-8071)

ABOUT THE CASE

In Kayvan v. Pompeo, 2 Iranian American families/couples are challenging the U.S. Government’s unreasonable administrative delays in adjudicating 2* travel ban waivers. Challenged policies include the U.S. Government’s usurpation of individual consular officers authority and discretion to adjudicate travel ban waivers, and the designation of that authority and discretion to non-consular officers, including consular managers, visa chiefs, consular section chiefs, consular management the Visa Office, and Quality Support, Inc. contractors, which is unlawful under Presidential Proclamation 9645, §3(C) ("PP 9645"). Plaintiffs also challenge the State Department's arbitrary decision to not use its' new automated vetting process for the visa applicants who have waited the longest.


Plaintiffs in this action are U.S. citizens, and their Iranian national relatives who were visa applicants who have been denied timely adjudication of case-by-case PP 9645 waivers. 


*When the case was filed, 3 families were seeking 4 visas, but two visas have since been issued.
