This morning, the National Immigration Law Center, National Health Law Program, Western Center on Law & Poverty, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Los Angeles filed a lawsuit against the Trump Administration to block the implementation of the DHS final rule, which threatens millions of immigrant families —disproportionately families of color. . The suit, filed in the Northern District of California, was filed on behalf of nonprofits serving immigrant communities and advocates for racial equity, health, children, farm workers, and working families today. La Clínica de la Raza et al. v. Trump et al. filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, asks the court to declare the regulation issued by DHS unlawful and unconstitutional.

As you may already know, thirteen states led by Washington Attorney General Robert Ferguson filed a lawsuit Wednesday, as well as the Counties of San Francisco and Santa Clara, to challenge the rule as well.
