The American Civil Liberties Union in New Hampshire is challenging the federal government’s decision to deport a man to his native El Salvador, despite a court order allowing him to remain in the United States.

In its brief filed Wednesday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, the ACLU said that José Daniel Guerra-Castañeda was deported last month by U.S. Immigration and Enforcement to El Salvador and is currently in a crowded jail there.

A federal court judge in New Hampshire has ruled that a Haitian immigrant who claims he fled politically-motivated attacks in his home country can remain the United States for now.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit late Monday requesting that judge halt the transfer of Jeff Beaubrun from New Hampshire to Louisiana, where he was set to be deported to Haiti.
