Gebhardt v. Nielsen, 15-56072

Affirming the district courts's dismissal of an action challenging the denial of I-130 visa petitions filed on behalf of a man's wife and children for lack of jurisdiction in a case where the denial was on account of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act, preventing convicts of certain sex offenses against children from petitioning unless they can show they pose no risk to the beneficiaries of the petitions, because such a determination is at the discretion of the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
