BREAKING: Court Rules that Detainees Do Not Need to be Held in the Same State as Their Children

A federal appeals court has ruled that detainees do not have to be held in the same state as their children.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit affirmed a district court’s ruling that there is no “due process right to family unity” for migrant families. The appeals court added that they would heed decisions from the Supreme Court that cautioned lower courts against “innovating” on the issue of due process rights.

The ruling came from a lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by two migrants and their children.
