As per the court documents that were registered on Tuesday and after the US president, Donald Trump had ended the policy, Authorities of Immigration has departed around 900 migrant children from their respective families.Mr. Trump approved an order in June 2018 which ended the separations after his immigration policy i.e. " Zero Policy" and this policy brought outrage, worldwide.
But ever since, the immigration authorities have confirmed some family divisions by saying that the children's parents have put them at risk. Legally, the authorities have allowed excluding migrant families, in the condition - if they have a criminal history in the past or even a traffic offense.
However, On Tuesday, the ACLU had a dispute in court documents that most of the families who have continued this separation in recent months have violated traffic laws and they have not harmed their children.
In the documents, it was written by ACLU that; "The government is systematically separating large numbers of families based on minor criminal history, highly dubious allegations of unfitness, and errors in identifying bona fide parent-child relationships,"The organization made a request in its action that a federal judge precisely explains and highlights the circumstances where children should be separated from their parents, which means that this condition is applicable only if parents are unfit or unsafe to the child.
In a report, The ACLU"s deputy director said; "It is shocking that the Trump administration continues to take babies from their parents,"More than 900 families accompany the other thousands of earlier split by this brutal policy.
The government must not be permitted to avoid the court statement over violations like traffic violations."Earlier, it was unknown that approximately how many children had faced separation after Trump's order, though lawyer’s team who lately visited border detention departments stated they observed the separation of a huge number of children from either their parents or the relatives.
The conditions which were observed in such facilities have led to national investigation after the team of lawyers communicated to media that the children were in need of food, they were not able to clean themselves; also, they were unwillingly forced to take care of each other.Kevin McAleenan, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security told administrators that family separations would become rare, only if the child was considered to be at danger.
