CSPA Case Heads to the Supreme Court

CSPA CaseOn January 25, the U.S. Department of Justice requested that the Supreme Court review our victory in DeOsorio v. Mayorkas in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. In this video, Attorney Carl Shusterman explains the basics of the  Child Status Protection Act (CSPA) and what to expect as our nationwide class action lawsuit heads to the Supreme Court. He further offers advice as to what immigrants and their attorneys should do while the CSPA case is pending.




CSPA was enacted in order to keep immigrant families intact despite family-based and employment-based waiting times ranging up to 23 years or more.

CSPA applies to thousands of people, including those who were sponsored for permanent residence after the law took effect as well as many people who were sponsored for green cards prior to August 6, 2002.

If the Supreme Court grants the DOJ’s petition for a writ of certiorari, briefs will be submitted over the summer and oral arguments will probably be scheduled in October or November.
