350 Illegals in L.A. Jail Fighting Deportation

Thursday, 20 May 2010 10:20 AM

 

More than 350 immigrant detainees in the greater Los Angeles area are jailed while fighting deportation, according to the federal government.

A report by latimes.com reveals that the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is litigating for the right of detainees held for six months or more to have hearings on whether they can be released from custody while their cases roll through the system.

U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement  lawyers continue to oppose the bond hearings.
