"A federal judge in Chicago ruled Tuesday that a lawsuit filed by the Heartland Alliance's National Immigrant Justice Center against the government's use of immigration detainers may proceed.

The NIJC said that the case may expand to become a class-action suit on behalf of thousands of people who were unjustly held in prison and placed at the disposition of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."
