Cubans remain in detention; removal order will likely proceed

Today, Love News received a vital update in the case of the Cuban migrants who remain in custody. The group of seven appeared before Justice Lisa Shoman today to hear their fates. They had accused the state of detaining them illegally shortly after they came into the country on February 15. Their attorney, Leo Bradley Jr. argued that the fundamental rights of these individuals were violated by the Department of Immigration. Today, Justice Shoman found that in all circumstances that the Cubans’ deprivation of liberty by the state was not in breach of their constitutional rights. She found that the detention by the state was lawful in pursuance of the applicable sections of the Immigration Act. As such, Justice Shoman noted that no damages should be paid. For the time being, in the case of the woman who had children with her, those children remain in the custody of the state but the state should ensure she has access to the children until they are reunited and a removal order is acted on. In the case of the woman, who is pregnant, the state is also take care of her until removal happens. There was no order as to costs.
