On Thursday, Feb. 26, Federal Judge John Kronstadt from Los Angeles, CA finalized the Lopez-Venegas v. Jeh Johnson case. The finalization of this case will allow thousands of Mexican nationals who were misinformed or coerced to sign voluntary departures a chance to return lawfully into the United States. The 2014 settlement stemmed from a lawsuit brought in June 2013 in Los Angeles by the ACLU of Southern California. They sued on behalf of 12 individual plaintiffs who were deported from the United States by Border Patrol or ICE officials who utilized coercion or deceit to sign voluntary departure forms. The ACLU SC filed on behalf of 3 organizational plaintiffs that used their resources in response to coercive voluntary departures. 2 of the 3 organizational plaintiffs are based out of the Inland Valley including the Pomona Economic Opportunity Center and the San Bernardino Community Services Center.
