DETROIT, Mich. – The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan is disappointed in today’s 2-1 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit that a lower court was powerless to stop the deportation of Iraqi nationals during the summer of 2017, even when those deported face persecution, torture or death.  The majority also ruled that the district court did not have jurisdiction to grant bond hearings, which resulted in the release of hundreds of detainees in January and February 2018, on a class-wide basis.

The American Civil Liberties Union asked the U.S. District Court in Detroit to release over 100 Iraqi nationals who have been illegally detained by U.S. immigration authorities, most for more than a year. The ACLU is also requesting sanctions against the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for misleading the court; and to unseal secret documents that show ICE’s prior statements to the court were false.

DETROIT – The ACLU of Michigan has filed an emergency motion to protect Iraqis detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from illegal coercion and intimidation.  On behalf of detainees and their families, the ACLU is asking the court to stop threats and misinformation by ICE agents, intended to pressure long-time U.S. residents into agreeing to be deported.  Many detainees are from persecuted ethnic or religious minority groups.
