We have more than enough responses now, so I am about to close the form. Please read this article to know more about what will happen next.

The AILA is the professional body for immigration lawyers in the USA). They have started the process to challenge the immigration ban in a class action lawsuit. The obvjective would be to get a Federal court to block the ban, and I think there is a pretty good chance to do that, given how unfair the ban actually is, and the irreparable harm it does to people around the world.

I have agreed with the AILA to gather some willing DV participants to the suit. They would like a good sampling of participants from around the world, and different visa types, so that they can demonstrate the broad impact and affected people. There is no cost to become a plaintiff – they are doing this work without fees.

So – I have created a simple online form where you can record your details to be considered as a participant on the lawsuit. Your information will be viewable by me, and made fully available to the team of lawyers at the AILA – so it you are not comfortable with that, please don’t complete the form.

They will not use everyone from the form – they need a good sampling of cases. If they win, the benefit will be for all – not just those that participate in the suit.

So – it’s a simple form – please take 5 minutes to fill it out and the AILA team will reach out in due course.

To be clear the READY for scheduling email is the one that starts like this:

“Congratulations!  Our records indicate that you have submitted all required documentation to the Kentucky Consular Center and are ready to be scheduled for an interview when your case number becomes current. Interviews are scheduled numerically based on case numbers that have completed processing.”

Here is a link to the form

FYI – this is the same team that published this call for participants.
