    Immigrant mothers once detained in Texas drop their lawsuit

    SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Three immigrant mothers who alleged retaliation after taking part in a hunger strike at a South Texas detention center want their case dropped.

    The San Antonio Express-News Detainees drop retaliation lawsuit - San Antonio Express-News reports the women are no longer in detention. The women from Central and South America asked Wednesday to have the case dismissed.

    The trio earlier this year filed a class-action complaint against U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the private prison operator in Karnes City, the GEO Group. The mothers sought a court order to stop alleged retaliatory practices.

    A judge declined to grant a temporary restraining order.

    ICE has said it respects the rights of all people to protest.

    One woman was granted legal status to remain in the U.S. The other two are free on bond as their immigration cases proceed.

    Watch the lawyers line up to file lawsuits now that it is clearly demonstrated that just filing will get you immediate legal status. I do not think that the entire Obama administration is talented enough to make soup in the WH kitchen.
