US Begins to Release Asylum Seeking Undocumented Immigrant Mothers

Federal officials have started releasing undocumented immigrant families who have valid asylum claims, a group that currently stands at about 2,172.
Human rights activists and immigrants have long protested the living conditions inside some of the federal detention centers.
They have also criticized the amount of time detainees are kept in custody, and the remoteness of the locations.
The conditions are so poor, immigrant groups say, that they have prompted hunger strikes and suicides.
