Class Action filed against ICE over unconstitutional detention of American citizens

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 last week 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.
