Federal judge says using shackles during immigration proceedings violates rights

A federal judge has ruled Immigrations and Customs Enforcement violated a New Haven man’s constitutional rights when he was shackled during immigration court proceedings. The federal judge’s ruling late last week does not force ICE to stop the practice. It says there should have been an assessment to determine if the shackling was necessary in the case of Mark Reid. Reid is represented by the Worker and Immigrant Rights Advocacy Clinic at Yale Law School. A law student at the clinic says  they hope the ruling will lead ICE to rethink it's shackling policy.
