In addition to preventing successful claims to asylum, there is evidence that U.S. government agencies are coordinating with each other to interfere with the ability of undocumented immigrants to become U.S. Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR) based on their bona fide marriage to a U.S. citizen; in this case, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) would notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding its upcoming interviews with certain beneficiaries and ICE would show up at the USCIS interview taking the beneficiary into custody and even seeking to deport them. In response to these U.S. government actions, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of the beneficiaries in the class against the U.S. government for violating their due process rights and the Immigration and National Act (INA). Judge Mark Wolf will consider the U.S. government's motion to dismiss this lawsuit on Monday.
As stated in the (below) articles, it is 100% wrong for the U.S. government to create a path to U.S. Lawful Permanent Residency (for these undocumented immigrants) and then set up a trap in this legal path to arrest and deport them.
