McAllen, Texas (CNN)The undocumented immigrant from Honduras sobbed as she told an attorney Tuesday how federal authorities took her daughter while she breastfed the child in a detention center, where she was awaiting prosecution for entering the country illegally.

When the woman resisted, she was handcuffed, Natalia Cornelio, the attorney with the Texas Civil Rights Project, recalled from her interview with the woman, who had been detained under the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy to refer anyone caught crossing the border illegally for federal prosecution.


Words cannot even begin to describe how awful this is.

This should make everyone's hearts break, and fill them with rage.

ACLU: Feds are coercing Iraqi detainees to agree to be deported

Quote:
........The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) alleges that many Iraqi detainees were sent recently to a private prison in Georgia, where ICE (U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement) agents and Iraqi consular officials tried to pressure them into signing forms saying they agree to be removed to their native Iraq.

The ACLU said in its motion that ICE and Iraqi consular officials are pressuring the detainees to sign the forms because: "it is becoming increasingly clear that the Government of Iraq will issue travel documents for (the Iraqi detainees) only if the class members state in writing that they desire to return to Iraq."

Some of the Iraqis did sign them, feeling pressure to do so, said Miriam Aukerman, ACLU Michigan's senior staff attorney. One of the Iraqi detainees said some detainees were reduced to tears by the pressure to sign.

"Faced with threats of prosecution or long-term, lifetime incarceration, they felt they had no choice but to sign," Aukerman told the Free Press. Many others resisted and refused to sign despite pressure from ICE and Iraqi Consular officials, said the motion filed in court.
