PRESENT: JOSÉ A. CABRANES, ROSEMARY S. POOLER, GERARD E. LYNCH, Circuit Judges. ALTAIR CLAUDIO FREIRE, Plaintiff-Appellant, 16-868-cv v. UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, KIRSTJEN NIELSEN, SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY, LEE CISSNA, DIRECTOR, US CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES (“USCIS”), JEFFERSON B.
