H2 judge halts deporations

In San Diego, federal Judge Dana Sabraw has ordered a 1-week halt to the deportation of migrant families who have been reunited after being separated by immigration officials at the border. The ruling came after the American Civil Liberties Union raised concern about “mass deportations” following the reunification of migrant children and their parents, many of whom are seeking asylum in the U.S. In total, up to 3,000 children were separated from their parents, hundreds of whom may have already been deported.
