The judge allowed the immigrants to continue their deportation case

Feb. 18—An immigrant from El Salvador who was deported to his home country four years ago in violation of two federal court orders can continue his lawsuit against the United States, a judge ruled.

A federal judge rejected an attempt to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Jose Daniel Guerra-Castaneda, who was deported to El Salvador to face trial on murder charges during Trump’s presidency.

Federal District Court Judge Nathaniel M. In a memorandum and order issued by Gorton, Interpol (the International Criminal Police Agency) identified Guerra-Castaneda as a suspected member of the MS-13 gang who was being held in 300 Salvadoran prisons. Day, where he claims he was assaulted, denied medical care and tortured.

Authorities eventually dropped charges against him, and he returned to the United States in 2020.

At some point before his deportation, ICE held him in a federal lockup in Strafford County. He is represented by the ACLU-New Hampshire and the Preeti Flaherty Law Firm.

SangYeob Kim, a staff attorney at the ACLU, said the decision is a victory for government accountability.

“In this case, ICE’s violation of a federal court order to keep our client in the country has caused him to suffer horrific physical and emotional trauma that will last a lifetime,” Kim said in a statement.
