Green Evans-Schroeder is proud to be class counsel in Aleman Gonzalez v. Sessions, an important class action lawsuit that has been responsible for many immigrants' release on bond.
Two Bay Area fathers who have been detained for over six months at the Contra Costa West County Detention Facility in Richmond, California sued the federal government today in a class action lawsuit challenging their unlawful and prolonged detention.
Plaintiffs Esteban Aleman Gonzalez of Antioch and Jose Gutierrez Sanchez of San Lorenzo are represented by Van Der Hout, Brigagliano & Nightingale, LLP, Centro Legal de la Raza, the Law Offices of Matthew H. Green, and the ACLU Foundations of California.
“The federal government's deportation machine is tearing families apart,” said Matthew H. Green, an immigration attorney representing the proposed class in today's suit. “I see this every day. Time and time again, my clients are held in a cruel and unnecessary limbo while the government keeps them locked up and withholds their right to a hearing.”
