In Najafi v. Pompeo, Iranian American families are challenging the U.S. Government’s designation of the authority and discretion to approve case-by-case waivers to individual consular officers to 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 in this action are U.S. citizens, Legal Permanent Residents, and their Iranian national immediate relatives who are immigrant visa applicants that have been denied timely adjudication of case-by-case PP 9645 waivers as a result of the State Department's usurpation of consular officer authority and discretion.
