Judge's deportation ruling offers reprieve to immigrant families

Many Texas residents are aware that the federal government has been widely criticized for its policy of swiftly deporting reunited families of undocumented immigrants. The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit seeking to give undocumented families more time to prepare their asylum claims or legal defenses, and the district court judge hearing the cased ruled on July 16 that deportations should cease temporarily. Attorneys representing both the ACLU and the government will now have the opportunity to argue whether or not the order should be extended permanently.

Questions surround treatment of detained immigrants

Those who have relocated to the United States with the hope of staying may be paying close attention to immigration headlines, and particularly those relating to the treatment of immigrant detainees. While much of the recent media attention involving immigration covered children separated from their parents, the San Diego Tribune is now calling attention to another immigration-related issue: the treatment of detained immigrants across all age groups while in custody.

Government faces lawsuit for detention of green card applicants

Some people in Texas might be concerned that an attempt to obtain a green card could result in deportation instead. When a man in New Jersey who was an undocumented immigrant went to his appointment at Immigration and Customs Enforcement to apply for a green card, he was instead placed in a detention center. The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey and the New York Civil Liberties Union have filed a lawsuit against the government because of the man's detention.
