Kerry v. Din (U.S. Supreme Court)

In this case, a U.S. citizen, Fauzia Din, married a native and citizen of Afghanistan. After their marriage, Din petitioned for her husband to receive a U.S. visa, and his application was ultimately denied, allegedly because of his relationship to terrorist activity. Din argued that the decision to deny her husband a visa should be reviewable by the judiciary, and that she should have standing to bring a case requesting review. We filed an amicus brief analyzing the high risk of errors in processing aliens’ visa applications, a risk that would be reduced if the U.S. Supreme Court were to require additional procedural safeguards, particularly judicial review.
