Briefly: Federal judge allows arrested immigrants to fight charges

All 16 immigrants who were arrested in the June 6 New Haven Immigration & Customs Enforcement raids and wanted to provide evidence that their arrests were unconstitutional can now do so, a federal judge ruled Monday. Two weeks ago, federal judge Michael Straus only allowed 11 immigrants to have a shot at dismissing the federal immigration case against them because he said the other five did not have an adequate case for dismissal. But on Monday, Straus said he will accept evidence from the other five, the New Haven Independent reported. All of the immigrants will testify later this month, the Independent added. See the Yale Daily News later this week for further updates.
