New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is planning to sue the federal government over the "zero tolerance policy" being enforced at the border.
The governor says currently, 70 children are being held at facilities in New York after being separated from their parents while trying to cross into the country. Upwards of two-thousand children have been detained nationwide, causing a debate over border enforcement.
Cuomo says his lawsuit will combat what he calls an illegal and immoral practice, enacted at the behest of President Trump's administration. He says the children are being used as bargaining chips by the administration to pressure congress.
