Good News for Detained Immigrants in Los Angeles

"A federal judge in Los Angeles on Thursday ordered federal officials to provide a hearing to immigrants detained across the Los Angeles area to determine if they should be released on bond while they fight their deportation cases.  U.S. District Judge Terry Hatter’s preliminary injunction will ensure that immigrants who are detained for six months or longer, including asylum seekers, don’t just languish in immigration jails without having a judge review whether they can be released while their cases are pending." - Sandra Hernandez, Sept. 15, 2012.
