Challenging "Extreme Vetting" of Immigration Benefits Applicants

Challenging "Extreme Vetting" of Immigration Benefits Applicants

Wagafe v. Trump

The Controlled Application Review and Resolution Program (CAARP) is a secret and unlawful government vetting program that targets thousands of applicants who are Muslim or from certain Muslim-majority countries for delay or denial of immigration benefits. This lawsuit challenges the use of CARRP and increased vetting announced by President Trump in his travel ban Executive Orders in processing applications for adjustment of status and naturalization.
The case was filed as a nationwide class action in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington by the ACLU of Southern California, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, Law Offices of Stacy Tolchin, the ACLU, the ACLU of Washington, NIPNLG, and Perkins Coie LLP. The Council joined the case in September 2017.
