The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit against the U.S. government over the detention of three teens suspected of being gang members.
The lawsuit, filed against U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and several federal immigration agencies alleges three teenagers are unlawfully detained on “suspicion of being gang members without substantiation,” the New York Times reported.
