CHILDREN SEEKING ASYLUM ASK FEDERAL COURT TO END THEIR DETENTION AND APPOINT A MONITOR TO OVERSEE OBAMA'S DETENTION POLICY

CHRCL, May 19, 2016 - "Claiming that the conditions of their detention are "deplorable" and "inhumane," and that they are being illegally held in remote detention centers commingled with hundreds of unrelated adults, children seeking asylum in the United States today asked a federal court in Los Angeles to order their prompt release and the release of their detained mothers. The request was presented to federal district court Judge Dolly Gee in Los Angeles. Judge Gee is presiding over a class action case dealing with the conditions of detention of immigrant children and the process for releasing them.  ... The case is Flores v. Lynch, No. CV 85-4544 DMG (C.D. Cal.) Copies of the court motion, proposed court Orders and children’s and mother’s declarations (with family names redacted) may be viewed and downloaded on our website or directly through the links provided below. ...
