UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
MANUEL C. ALVAREZ,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 17-cv-02633-MEJ (PR)
ORDER OF TRANSFER
SECRETARY OF THE DHS,
Plaintiff, a detainee at the Federal Correctional Institution in Herlong, California, filed a
pro se complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, alleging that the Department of Homeland Security
violated his constitutional rights based on actions they took in Dallas, Texas, which lies within the
United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas. Specifically, plaintiff alleges that
the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Texas Service Center erred in denying his
alien worker petition. Because the acts complained of occurred in the Northern District of Texas,
venue properly lies in that district and not in this one. See 28 U.S.C. § 1391(b). Accordingly, this
case is TRANSFERRED to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas.
See 28 U.S.C. § 1406(a).
The Clerk shall terminate all pending motions and transfer the entire file to the Northern
District of Texas.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: July 7, 2017
United States Magistrate Judge
