A federal judge has temporarily halted the deportation of families who were recently reunited after being separated by the Trump administration.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed paperwork saying attorneys were concerned about "mass deportations" following the reunification of children with their parents. They asked that deportations be stalled after the families were reunited to ensure no family is being improperly deported.

Judge Dana Sabraw said Monday he'd order a temporary halt to any deportations for a week until the government can respond to the ACLU motion.
