"Seeking to end the government’s practice of placing immigration holds on individuals without probable cause, the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California (ACLU/SC), the National Day Labor Organizing Network (NDLON), and the law firm Kaye, McLane, Bednarski & Litt filed a class-action lawsuit today against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The lawsuit follows the detention of plaintiff Gerardo Gonzalez Jr., a 23-year-old American-born citizen, who is presently held at a Los Angeles County jail on an immigration hold." - ACLU-SC, June 19, 2013.
