Groups ask human-rights watchdog to stop the U.S. from separating families at the border

Besides the Texas Civil Rights Project, the other groups making the request are the Women's Refugee Commission, the Immigration Clinic at the University of Texas School of Law, and the private firm Garcia & Garcia Attorneys at Law.

In one example described in the request, two detained migrant mothers reported that immigration officials took their daughters, saying they'd be bathed, but never returned. And they haven't seen their children since.
