Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
District court's dismissal of plaintiff's amended complaint arising from denial of his petition for a fiancee visa is affirmed where: 1) district court did not err in dismissing plaintiff's claim that his visa was improperly denied as he has failed to state a plausible entitlement to relief; 2) district court did not err in dismissing plaintiff's Bivens claims as he failed to name any officers in their individual capacities in the first amended complaint and a Bivens claim does not lie against the United States; and 3) district court did not abuse its discretion in denying plaintiff's motion to file a second amended complaint as it would have been futile.
