Judge Dana Sabraw Ordered U.S. Government To Reunite Families
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
More than 2,300 migrant children were separated from their parents as a result of Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy since early May, seeking to prosecute all adults who crossed the border illegally (including those traveling with children).
Responding to a lawsuit filed by 17 states, on Tuesday, June 26, 2018, the United States District Court Judge Dana Sabraw of San Diego ruled that U.S. Immigration agents can no longer separate immigrant parents and children caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, and must reunite families that had been split up in custody. Judge Sabraw ordered the U.S. government to reunite parents with their children younger than 5 year old within 14 days of the order, and children 5 year old and older within 30 days of the order. She granted the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit filed over the family separations. The ACLU sued on behalf of a mother and her 6 year old daughter, who were separated last November after arriving in the United States to seek asylum to escape religious persecution in Democratic Republic of Congo. This mother and daughter were reunited in March. The ACLU continues to pursue class-action claims on behalf of other immigrant families. Trump issued an executive order on June 20, 2018, but the U.S. government has yet to reunite about 2,000 families.
