ACLU Sues Trump Administration Over Arrests of Teen Illegals

The Yolo County Juvenile Detention Facility in Woodland

On behalf of three teenagers recently detained on Long Island, just east of NY, and later taken to a government facility in northern California, the suit charges ORR with accepting ICE's unsubstantiated gang allegations and placing these children in severely restrictive conditions.

The class action lawsuit was filed in the US District Court of Northern California.

Freeman, senior staff attorney for the ACLU of Northern California, said the suit charges the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement with accepting unsubstantiated gang allegations made by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

The action accuses the ICE and the Office of Refugee Resettlement of holding illegal children and transporting them to detention centers without informing their parents or lawyers. "They have dreams and legal claims to remain in the United States, but they've been swept up by an administration that prioritizes deportations over truth and justice".

The Suffolk County Police Department - which has acknowledged that it uses ICE to detain teens the department doesn't have the evidence to arrest - was investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2009 for discriminatory policing against Latino community members, according to the ACLU.

O'Malley said Sessions visited El Salvador and heard of efforts by transnational gangs to recruit children as young as 8 years old. "We will absolutely defend the President's lawful authority to keep Americans safe and protect communities from gang violence".

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said Friday that it had sued the Trump administration for detaining illegal immigrant teenagers for "unsubstantiated claims of gang affiliation". At least one lived in Suffolk County, N.Y. They rape, and they rob. He is being held in ORR detention due to ICE's unsupported allegations of "gang affiliation", the ACLU said.

Yolo County spokeswomah Beth Gabor said Saturday that county officials have not yet seen the lawsuit and declined to comment.

ORR is legally required to ensure that a child who immigrated to the United States alone is placed under the care of a family member or sponsor in the USA or, alternately, in the least restrictive setting possible.

Long Island is among the leading destinations nationally for the children because of its large Hispanic population. They aren't immediately deported if caught at the border, like adults, and can be placed with relatives in the US while they undergo a lengthy vetting process. More than 4,000 have been placed there in the past three years.
