The Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law, and others, have filed a motion with the United States District Court for the Central District of California alleging that the Obama administration has failed to comply with a 1997 class action settlement that established minimum national standards for the detention, release, treatment and housing of children detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection or U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on suspicion of being present in the U.S. without authorization.

The motion argues that the Obama administration's "no-release" policy is a material breach of the settlement by failing to minimize the detention of children, and their mothers, and by routinely jailing children in unlicensed detention facilities where they are regularly exposed to harsh, and substandard conditions and treatment.

Humane deportations and all.
