Judge Orders Halt to Border Separations

The Trump administration must halt family separations at the border under a temporary nationwide injunction passed down late Tuesday, a move likely to spark a high-profile legal battle with the Justice Department.

Ruling on a lawsuit brought by the ACLU, California federal judge Judge Dana M. Sabraw also ordered that all separated families be reunited within 30 days, that children under 5 be returned to their parents within 14 days, and that all children be allowed to speak with their parents within 10 days. The order enables family border separations only if their families present an immediate threat to their safety.
