Deported immigrant rights leader Jean Montrevil has sued the U.S. government, arguing he was targeted for deportation because of his political speech in violation of his First Amendment rights. Montrevil is a founding member of the New Sanctuary Coalition of New York City, an immigrant rights group. He was deported to Haiti in 2018, after years of organizing. Meanwhile, a Salvadoran asylum seeker has sued the federal government and the private prison corporation CoreCivic over a miscarriage she suffered in January 2018 while detained at an immigration jail in Otay Mesa, California. ICE agents detained Rubia Morales in a cold cell and then denied her medical attention even though she pleaded for it. Days later she suffered a miscarriage.
