Damus v. Nielsen: Plaintiffs’ Motion and Supporting Memorandum for a Finding of Civil Contempt

Plaintiffs seek a finding of civil contempt against the Los Angeles Field Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) for ongoing violations of the preliminary injunction in this case. In its July 2, 2018 preliminary injunction order, the Court held that five ICE field offices—among them the Los Angeles Field Offices—were likely violating the Parole Directive and ordered them to comply with the Directive in adjudicating parole requests. Yet the Los Angeles Field Office admits it has changed nothing in the way it conducts parole determinations for asylum seekers since the preliminary injunction issued.
