Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Daniel Galindo is a Staff Attorney at the ACLU Immigrants' Rights Project.

As the political drama over an impeachment inquiry aimed at President Donald Trump unfolds in Washington DC, some have asked why Trump’s other wrongdoings are not the subject of impeachment. Indeed, Trump’s most egregious misdeed may be his cruel policy of separating thousands of immigrant families at the border and causing irreparable mental and physical trauma in young children and their parents.

Now the ACLU has launched a massive federal lawsuit over just this policy, seeking damages from the government on behalf of thousands of immigrants who were affected.
