The ACLU and the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Southern California have filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of several young immigrants against the Trump administration for its unlawful revocations of their Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.
The ACLU of Southern California undertakes litigation when doing so is the most effective way to advance a civil liberties concern. We file lawsuits that will have an impact on people’s rights by setting a legal precedent or affecting the policies and actions of public officials. We both provide direct legal representation to people and file amicus (friend-of-the-court) briefs addressing civil liberties issues in cases initiated by others. All of the ACLU’s legal work is on a pro bono basis; we never charge for our legal services.
