Phil Fairbanks at the Buffalo News is covering an important lawsuit against federal immigration authorities that has been filed by the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU).
A lawsuit filed by the NYCLU claims that, under the Trump administration, immigration authorities at the Buffalo Federal Detention Facility have "stopped a long-standing practice of granting parole to asylum seekers
who are not considered a danger to the community and have a credible
chance of being granted asylum."
"A lot of these people have suffered trauma in the past," said
Matthew K. Borowski, a Buffalo immigration lawyer. "And now, they're
languishing in jail."
