Minnesota Sues To Reunite Families

Authorities Abandon 'Zero-Tolerance' for Immigrant Families

If the government misses the court-ordered deadlines, it could trigger a constitutional crisis.

A NY judge says the government acted unlawfully by requiring some immigrant children to be kept detained until an agency's director approved their release. Sabraw denied the administration's attempt to toss out the suit. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Seattle, aims to force the government to reunite the thousands of families it split apart - and permanently cease family separations. "This is a startling reality", Sabraw wrote.

The joint effort by the Democratic state attorneys general mirrors the battle over Trump's travel ban against several Muslim-majority countries - a battle they lost Tuesday in a 5-4 US Supreme Court ruling along ideological lines.

Immigration advocates criticized Obama during his presidency for the number of deportations his administration directed and detention of its families - although families were kept together. The spokesperson added, "Without this action by Congress, lawlessness at the border will continue".

Also challenging will be the requirement the judge set on phone contact. Toddlers, often unable to communicate information about their parents or families, have been sent to shelters far from where their were held parents. Under a 1997 court settlement, children must be released from detention as quickly as possible. But they have yet to speak publicly about plans aimed at meeting the judge's deadlines.

Videgaray says, "we're anxious about what is going to happen with the children that are still detained, in spite of being accompanied by their parents, and in general the situation of children not only Mexican, but also of other nationalities, who are subjected to a violation of their fundamental rights".

To hear more about the ACLU's case, PRI's The World spoke with Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project in NY, and lead counsel in the case.

Just outside the building where Sessions spoke, more than 200 protesters opposed to the administration's immigration policies blocked a busy road.

The World: What is at the heart of the ACLU's lawsuit? .

Joining the case was Ms. C, and her 14-year-old son, Brazilians who were apprehended by Border Patrol agents after illegally crossing the U.S. -Mexico border and asking for asylum. The government should not be taking away children under our constitution unless there is a danger to the child from the parents and that's not what's happening.

The bill would have addressed a variety of lingering immigration issues, from ending family separations to Trump's border wall to a solution for almost 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children whose deportation protections were terminated by Trump.

Almost 2000 migrant children separated from their families at US-Mexico border
Nearly 2,000 children have reportedly been separated from their families at the border over six weeks under the policy. At one point, a reporter from NY magazine, Olivia Nuzzi, played the tape ProPublica obtained from inside a U.S.

"We're not changing the policy", she told reporters. Audio of separated children crying and images of detention centers led to more criticism.

"According to Judge Sabraw, the injunction will uphold "[immigrants'] rights to family integrity and association while their immigration proceedings are underway".

Grisham said there was no message being sent, only to be contradicted by President Trump, who tweeted out that she was targeting the "fake news media." Is that the case? Some of them were treated for depression and anxiety - and one child was even suicidal.

The most explicit concern is how they interpret the best interest of the child. He also noted that "the relationship between parent and child [] is constitutionally protected and well established".

Our ability to imagine ourselves in the shoes of others, to say "there but for the grace of God go I", is part of what makes us human. Right now, children can only be detained with their families for 20 days.

Reunification of families is going very slowly.
