SAN DIEGO (August 29, 2018) – For almost a century, nonprofit American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has worked vigorously to “defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties guaranteed to every person in this country by the Constitution and laws of the United States." The case of Ms. L, et. al., vs. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, et. al., set in San Diego, was taken on by New Yorker Lee Gelerent, ACLU’s lead attorney, to stop the Trump administration from separating children and parents at the border.
