The Department of Justice plans to appeal a federal judge’s injunction barring the separation of immigrant families, The ABA Journal reports. The government takes issue with the “scope and application” of the injunction in its notice of appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The injunction was issued in June in response to the DOJ’s zero-tolerance policy that subjected illegal immigrants to criminal prosecution and separated them from their children.
