Opinion

SUMMARY*fn2

Immigration

The panel affirmed the district court's denial of immigrant Asil Mashiri's mandamus petition, in which he sought to compel the Department of Education to issue him a Stafford Loan.

The panel wrote that the jurisdictional and substantive merits determinations merge in this case. The panel held that although Mashiri's mandamus petition falls within the scope of the sue-and-be-sued clause in 20 U.S.C. § 1082(a)(2), the anti-injunction clause in that subsection bars his suit for declaratory relief. The panel held that the Larson-Dugan exception to sovereign immunity did not bar Mashiri's petition under the mandamus statute, 28 U.S.C. § 1361. On the merits, the panel held that the district court correctly dismissed Mashiri's petition because when his Stafford Loan eligibility was reviewed, he did not provide any evidence that he was "in the United States for other than a temporary purpose," as required to receive a Federal Family Education Loan Program loan.

After Mashiri's mother obtained asylum, the Immigration Judge ("IJ") assigned to hear Mashiri's separate asylum case terminated those proceedings ...
