ACLU Files Lawsuit Against Federal Government

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a class action lawsuit against the federal government on Friday for separating immigrant families.

In the suit they claim that hundreds of families have been split up, and ask a judge to declare family separation illegal.

Here to explain this, and what prompted this suit, is Nomaan Merchant, a reporter with the Associated Press in Houston.
