ACLU sues after border agents detain 10 yr. old after surgery

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration after federal immigration authorities detained a 10-year-old girl with cerebral palsy following emergency surgery.

The ACLU planned to file the suit if the girl was not released by the Office of Refugee Resettlement by 3 p.m. on Tuesday, according to The Huffington Post, which reported that the girl remained in custody after the deadline.

The lawsuit is seeking to reunite the girl with her family. The ACLU argues it is not legal to detain the girl, who it says "is completely dependent on her mother" and "needs this care, stability, routine and support."

The lawsuit comes after the girl was detained by authorities earlier this month when the ambulance she was riding in passed through a Border Patrol checkpoint.
