In Najafi v. Pompeo, 10* Iranian American families are challenging the U.S. Government’s unreasonable administrative delays in adjudicating 24 waivers 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 have been denied timely adjudication of case-by-case PP 9645 waivers. As of Sept. 15, 2019, the average visa beneficiary in this case has waited 501 days for a waiver, and 5 have waited 647 days for a waiver, since the day PP 9645 went into effect.

JAN. 7, 2020 DEFENDANTS' OPPOSITION TO RULE 26(f) CONFERENCE, ARGUING distress over what will happen to family members in Iran given recent U.S. military action – does not justify dispensing with the judicial efficiencies that would come with deferring a Rule 26(f) conference until after resolution of the motion to dismiss."
