Various branches of the federal government worked in tandem to time interviews with migrants in order to arrest and sometimes deport them more expeditiously, the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts alleges in a lawsuit. Emails made public Monday as part of the lawsuit that the ACLU filed against Department of Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen show that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services communicated with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to schedule interviews with undocumented immigrants seeking legal status in such a way that would prevent the public from finding out about the arrests. “These were coordinated arrests,” Matthew Segal, one of the lawyers for the ACLU, told The Boston Globe.
