ACLU to Hold Briefing Call on Family Separation Legislation and Litigation
The American Civil Liberties Union will host a media call to discuss the latest family separation developments, including the House immigration legislation to be voted on this week that will further harm children and families at the border. The call will also address the organization’s class action lawsuit — which shed national attention to the practice — to put an end to the inhumane practice of separating families and reunite them.
Madhuri Grewal, ACLU, policy counsel
Lee Gelernt, ACLU, Immigrants’ Rights Project deputy director
TODAY, June 19, 12 p.m. ET
***Please RSVP to email@example.com***
Every month, you'll receive regular roundups of the most important civil rights and civil liberties developments. Remember: a well-informed citizenry is the best defense against tyranny.
