U.S. immigration authorities violated the rights of two Brazilian illegal immigrants arrested after they went to government offices to be interviewed as part of a process to seek legal status, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agreed to release one of the immigrants, a mother who had been separated from her 11-year-old son since her arrest over four months ago, following the ruling by U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf in Boston.
