    This is violations of American law on profiling by color not facts. Misuse of the valuable tool and intent of profiling.

  8. Trump would be 100% behind the treatment of this individual

    • While he whines about his traitor friends being “badly mistreated” by the govt. when caught doing illegal and criminal sh**.

  9. If they’re summer camps the republicans won’t mind sending their kids there for the 6 months.

    Love the ACLU, support them every year. Democracy needs guard groups like it, even more in these dark times.

  11. He shows proof of citizenship, his family and coworkers speak up for him and a judge tells them to release him, what else can this man do to get his freedom? This is utterly messed up

  12. god she is fine litigate me anytime

    Public officials should be fined for lying. Plain and simple.

  14. Blue line ISIS RUNNING A MUCK

  15. The people that voted this maniac into office sold their souls to the devil. it’s no wonder Trump relates to them they blame everyone for their problems and not own up to their mistakes. These voters are the ones that are to blame instead of fix it themselves they rely on other to do their dirty work. There is no plan to fix the immigration this is a plan that this maniacal government to devide and do Hitler’s job in this century. Trump and his followers are the epitome of pure evil.

  16. Keep fighting sister

  17. Racism at its ugliest! Violation of so many rights and they refused to carry out a judge’s order. Smh!

    • As I learn more about the criminal system of our country, it has become clear that incarceration is a modern form of slavery. Just read the 13th amendment and ask yourself, what is the race proportion of inmates? And what kind of crimes did they do? Does it make sense for them to stay in jail? As opposed to rehab.

      There’s a great podcast named Serial that exposes the unfairness our criminal system, (3rd season). The first 2 seasons are great too. Also, John Oliver had an episode on this too, that’s available on YouTube.

    • @Jackie C I agree that it is a form of modern day slavery. It’s such a sad reality that the laws we use for protection are also the very cause of this oppression. We the people are too distracted and too divided to come together and bring about true permanent change, however I do not lose hope for us Americans. Blessings to you.

  18. It hurts me to the core hearing seeing what these people have to go through these are human beings we are talking about and those that support these policies are sociopaths think about the trauma these people have to go through if that doesn’t do you anything you are probably a monster without empathy…

  19. ACLU is ruining America

    • If you think standing up for the rights of citizens and human rights of people in this country is ruining America, you aren’t patriotic but are just a sicko anti-American. The ACLU has a sterling record and protects our constitutional rights.

  20. Soon it will be journalists, Dems, anyone they don’t like. We HAVE CONCENTRATION CAMPS, AMERICA!
