Over the last week, litigation has piled up relating to the Trump administration's policy of separating migrant parents from children at the U.S. border—and the president's June 20 executive order on the issue is likely to precipitate even more lawsuits. To help keep track of the ongoing litigation, we've put together a resource post collecting all relevant documents from lawsuits over family separation, which we'll keep updated as the cases move forward. The post also includes documents related to the settlement agreement reached in Flores v. Reno on detaining children, known as the "Flores settlement," which the Department of Justice is now seeking to modify pursuant to President Trump's executive order.

You can find the collection of documents here or under the "Special Features" link on the menu at the top of the page. We hope you'll find it useful.
