NY And Several Other States Sue Over Family Separations

(Washington, DC) – Seventeen states are suing the federal government over the Trump administration’s family separation policy. In an announcement today, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said New York and 16 other states were suing to protect the well-being of children.

Officials from both side of the aisle have criticized the government’s “zero tolerance” policy and say last week’s executive order from President Trump reuniting families does not go far enough to reunite families.
