On March 30, RDN and its team won an order from a Federal Judge in Washington, D.C., in our case, O.M.G. v. Wolf. The order expands on a California District Circuit decision from March 28 which gave the Trump administration until April 6 to explain why it can’t quickly release many of the roughly 7,000 immigrant children at risk of contracting the coronavirus in shelters and detention facilities across the U.S., and unite them with waiting sponsors. Our decision expands the ruling to include the parents of detained children as well.
