ACLU Files Suit Challenging Immigrant Detention

The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Pennsylvania filed a class action lawsuit (Alli v. Decker Complaint) on May 27, 2009, charging that the government is violating the law by incarcerating people for prolonged periods of time, sometimes for years, while they fight their immigration cases, without providing them with the most basic element of due process – a custody hearing to determine if their prolonged detention is justified.
