Trump being sued by non-citizens walking through Mexico

Rate this topic

From Fox:

"A dozen migrants traveling by foot from Honduras to the U.S. to seek asylum filed a class-action lawsuit Thursday against President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security and others, claiming a violation of their due process under the Fifth Amendment.

"The Fifth Amendment states that, "no person… shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law."

So we might wonder how a non-citizen can sue for violation of rights.  There is precedent to say that illegal immigrants have due process rights when they are caught and being deported.

BUT

How can people sue Trump (or anyone) over something that is FUTURE... has not happened yet?  The "plaintiffs" are in Mexico walking.

Team Genius says they are unorganized and are not being provided logistical support.  just some good Samaritans handing out food, water and comforting words of encouragement

Who are their lawyers? 

Pro bono.  Katz , Marshall and banks. 

 

They found them listed in the yellow pages and their beach friends recommended them highly
