Legal immigrants targeted for deportation

Immigrants who are detained in Texas and other states are not necessarily undocumented. In some cases, they are permanent residents or otherwise legally in the country but are being held based on criminal convictions that occurred years or decades ago. If the Trump administration has its way, it may also detain those who have used any form of public assistance. This would include the use of public housing or food stamps.

Judge orders return of 2 deported immigrants

Two asylum-seeking immigrants who were deported from Texas were ordered returned by a federal judge on Aug. 9. The incident occurred during a hearing in a case that involves a challenge by the American Civil Liberties Union to a decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that affects whether people can seek asylum because of gang or domestic violence.

Judge orders changes at Texas immigrant detention facility

The Trump administration's controversial immigration policies suffered another legal setback on July 30 when a federal judge ordered that all children being detained at the Shiloh Residential Treatment Center in Texas be removed from the facility unless a psychiatrist or psychologist determines that they pose a risk to either themselves or others. The judge also ordered the Department of Health and Human Services to no longer administer powerful psychotropic drugs to children unless they have obtained permission from their parents or legal guardians.
