Lawsuit: Migrant boy almost jumped out window after family separation

Former President Barack Obama admonished current President Donald Trump's policy of separating children from their parents at the U.S-Mexico border.

"Our position is it violates the Constitution, violates due process, violates equal protection and violates the Administrative Procedure Act". A 5-4 majority of the High Court concluded that the third version did not suffer from religious animus and was instead a legal exercise of a president's authority to ban foreigners if they are deemed "detrimental to the interests of the United States".
