This case was initially filed in federal court in the Southern District of New York. After it was transferred to the District of New Jersey, on April 6, 2020, the ACLU of New Jersey, the Legal Aid Society, the Bronx Defenders, the ACLU National Prison Project and the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project filed an amended Writ of Habeas Corpus and Temporary Restraining Order with the Court requesting the release of a group of immigration detainees from Hudson County and Bergen County Jails because of medical conditions that make them especially vulnerable to COVID-19
