According to The National Law Journal the Immigrants' Rights Clinic filed a complaint yesterday against the Department of Homeland Security about the deportation of 96,000 immigrants via "Stipulated Removal:"

Today a coalition of immigrants' rights organizations asked a federal judge to compel the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to disclose information about a program under which it removes non-citizens from the United States without hearings before immigration judges.

The Stanford Law School Immigrants Rights Clinic (IRC), together with the National Immigration Law Center (NILC), the ACLU of Southern California (ACLUSC) and the National Lawyers Guild of San Francisco (NLGSF), filed the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
