[Ed. – On what grounds?]

Migrants from Honduras in one of several caravans marching through Central America and Mexico have filed a class action lawsuit against President Trump and his administration to stop him from securing the border against the thousands of migrants heading to the U.S.

The lawsuit was filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of the migrants by Nexus Services whose Libre by Nexus company charges migrants a reported $420 a month to wear the company’s ankle bracelet while out on immigration bond. Libre by Nexus is reported to be under investigation by state and federal authorities and is “accused of preying on detained undocumented immigrants”.

The suit is a preemptive move based on President Trump’s recent statements securing the border. The suit seeks to prevent the Trump administration from barring the migrants in the caravan from entering the U.S., from housing them in tents or detention centers without bail and to enforce the Flores agreement with regard to the alleged children of the migrants.
