ACLU Sues Obama Administration for Detaining Asylum Seekers as Intimidation Tactic

The Obama Adminstration has been categorically denying bond or release to the hundreds of mothers and children who fled to the US from Central America in the past several months in order to discourage other asylum seekers from seeking protection in the US.  At President Obama’s and Secretary Jeh Johnson’s instruction, the Department of Homeland Security has set a zero bond policy for these women and children, despite their having demonstrated a credible fear of persecution or torture.  This policy is inhumane and unlawful.  The American Civil Liberties Union is suing the Obama Administration to put an end to this unjust and un-American policy.  ACLU Sues Obama Administration for Detaining Asylum Seekers as Intimidation Tactic
