Tong tackles three immigration issues in four days
by Kelan Lyons
In the first four days of September, Attorney General William Tong’s office has been involved in three different immigration-related cases, joining several coalitions of like-minded state attorneys general who object to — and are demanding information about — the Trump administration’s treatment of immigrants.
Wednesday, Tong’s office stressed that the three cases are distinct and in separate phases, but released a statement from the attorney general explaining his recent focus on immigration issues.
Connecticut … join[ed] a multi-state lawsuit attempting to block a new policy that allows the deportation of certain immigrants without hearings before an immigration judge or other due process.
The policy, announced last month, allows the Department of Homeland Security, to expedite the deportation of undocumented immigrants anywhere in the United States who can not prove they’ve been in the country continuously for two years.
