U.S. Judge Orders Release of ILLEGALLY Imprisoned Immigrant Children From Detention Centres*
By M. David and Jackson
A federal judge, who recently said that the United States is illegally locking children up, has now dealt yet another blow to the Obama administration’s immigration policies.
On Friday, the judge ordered federal officials to release all children being held at family detention facilities in the United States.
The ruling was released Friday evening, and it said very clearly that no child can ever – under any circumstances – be held for more than 72 hours, unless they pose a significant risk to themselves or others.
The judge had previously ruled that locking up children after they have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border completely violates an 18-year-old court settlement.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee came last Friday in California. The decision is being called a victory for immigrant rights.
