ACLU LAWSUIT TO END FORCED CHILD SEPARATIONS
In Ms. L. v. ICE (2018), the ACLU sued on behalf of a mother and her 7-year-old daughter who fled violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo and then were separated by Trump’s Zero Tolerance Policy.
The mother was detained 2000 miles away from her child. A federal judge issued a nationwide injunction to stop the child separations.
