Lawsuit to freeze all immigration law deadlines

Our association, AILA, has filed a lawsuit against the USCIS today requesting the court to order the USCIS to freeze all immigration deadlines for:

 Initial applications

 Responses to all Requests for Evidence or other responses due on or after March 1, 2020

 Requests for extension of status, maintenance of status

 Reprieve from any expiration of status or employment authorization;

 Maintaining the status quo for purposes of eligibility for protection from removal, work authorization,

and immigration benefits from the date the President declared that a national emergency began on

March 1, 2020,until 90 days after the emergency officially ends.

Here is a detailed screen recording on the Complaint.  I think our chances of success are very, very good.
