LOS ANGELES - A federal court judge has certified a nationwide class, and rejected the government’s motion to dismiss, in a lawsuit filed on behalf of certain asylum seekers who are detained by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for months while they await screening interviews that allow them to proceed on their claims for protection in U.S. immigration courts.

“These are individuals who seek protection in the United States but are forced to languish in detention waiting to move forward on their cases, simply because the Department has ignored its own regulation mandating the prompt processing of these claims,” said Michael Kaufman, a staff attorney with the ACLU Foundation of Southern California. “At a time of some progress in the immigration system, this ruling highlights a troubling trend that has been left unaddressed by the President’s executive action.”

Keith Lundy Stump (22) of Oakhurst (on active probation out of Fresno County), and Cherise Agueros (21), of Ahwahnee, were arrested last week in Ahwahnee, after a CHP Officer saw the pair ditch a Honda (reported stolen out of Fresno) on Road 600 near CA-49. It is the same Honda allegedly used in the Sears burglary.

Authorities caught up with the duo at a home on Dillon Drive, where they recovered yet another vehicle, a 1992 GMC flatbed truck, reported stolen just that morning in Oakhurst. Inside the truck, deputies recovered most (not all) of the tools stolen from Sears last week. The only item reportedly recovered from the stolen Honda, was a debit card that belongs to Agueros.
