Ms. L. v. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement et al Featured Case

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit on behalf of woman from the Democratic Republic of Congo who came to the United States seeking asylum with her 7-year-old daughter, only to be forcibly removed from each other and detained in distant facilities once they arrived. The lawsuit claims that the government's treatment of the woman and her daughter violates the Due Process Clause of the US Constitution. On March 9, the ACLU amended its complaint, broadening it to a class action alleging a widespread practice of forcibly separating asylum-seeking parents and young children
