Attorney General Letitia James was among the 19 attorneys general on Wednesday to file an amicus brief opposing the conditions at holding facilities near the U.S. border, conditions that have come under scrutiny by investigators and federal lawmakers.

“Innocent children are suffering,” James said in a statement. “The Trump Administration’s immoral actions have stripped children of basic human needs. This is cruel and inhumane. We are calling on the court to take immediate action to ensure these children receive the basic care they should have been provided from day one.”

The brief, filed in federal court in California, urged relief for the children detained at the facilities, pointing the Flores Settlement Agreement that requires safe and sanitary conditions for detention and release or placement at a licensed facility.

Also signing onto the brief were AGs in California and Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawai’i, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and the District of Columbia.
