From The Guardian World:
Lawyers for eight immigrant families separated under Trump administration policy have filed claims against the US government, demanding $6m each in damages for what they describe as lasting trauma.
In claims released on Monday, the parents accuse immigration officers of taking their children away without giving them information and sometimes without a chance to say goodbye. The claims allege that many children remain traumatized, including a seven-year-old girl who will not sleep without her mother and a six-year-old boy who is reluctant to eat.
Stanton Jones, one of the lawyers for the families, said the claims depict “inexplicable cruelty” and that the affected families deserve monetary damages.
The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services has not responded to messages seeking comment on Monday.
