Trump Administration Seeks To Terminate Flores Settlement Limiting Detention Of Migrant Families

Daily Caller:

The Trump administration is seeking to terminate the Flores settlement, an immigration-related court order that prevents most migrant family units from being held in detention centers for more than 20 days, the Daily Caller has learned.

Eliminating the Flores settlement would allow the U.S. government to hold migrant children and their families indefinitely while they await court proceedings. The 1997 Flores v. Reno decision by the Supreme Court laid out specific conditions under which unaccompanied migrant children could be held in detention, and was later expanded to place time restrictions on the detention of migrant children accompanied by family members.

The new rule is expected to be rolled out during a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) press conference on Wednesday morning.

“The Administration is closing one of the legal loopholes that has allowed human traffickers and smugglers to exploit our vulnerabilities at the southern border,” a senior administration official told the Daily Caller. “President Trump has made it clear that he’s going to secure America’s border at all cost and this rule plays a vital role in the strategy to restore the integrity to our immigration system and our national security.”

The administration also plans to establish national standards for family detention housing. read more

8 Comments on Trump Administration Seeks To Terminate Flores Settlement Limiting Detention Of Migrant Families

  1. When you catch them, just take them back to the border, then release them with the warning not to come back. No detention centers needed, lots of money saved, no “concentration camps” for the left to whine about, end of problem.

  2. Won’t be long before some Obama appointment to the Federal Judiciary in Hawaii or California rules that this is a violation of the human rights or the constitutional rights of some illegal alien. Only the Supreme Court can save us from this Wilderness of Mirrors and Leftist Legal Lunacy, and we cannot count of Chief Justice John Roberts to stay true to his oath of office.

    Next on the agenda has to be an end to birthright citizenship.

    President Trump called out msNBC as faker than CNN.

    Andrea “CNN Sucks” Mitchell was so breathlessy outraged that she stopped live coverage of the President of the United States giving a press briefing to bitch about it with fake msNBC reporter Peter Alexander who left the Live Presidential Press Briefing to bitch about it with Andrea “CNN Sucks” Mitchell. Circular Jerks.

  4. Good, it’s about time we stopped caving to this idiotic, turd world emotional blackmail.

    “Oh goodness!… If we do this we’ll break up families and leave children in ‘jail’!”

    Fuck ’em. They can leave anytime then want; so long as it isn’t here inside the US.

    “Oh mercy… We can’t withdraw from Afghanistan!… What will happen to the women there?!!!”

    Fuck ’em. Let’s get out.

    Their problems = Their problems.

    Our problems = Our problems.

  5. Watching Daytime msNBC Live is like watching Demon Summonings Live. Everything from screeches to wild hand gesticulations to bloodlust hunger cries. Pure Evil.

  6. It’s all become about the greed of a few hundred politicians & immigration lawyers over our nation of laws and the will of the People.
    Frankly these people need to stay home and effect change there.

  7. “Flores v. Reno”

    Should have known old Dammit Janet was behind that DOJ cave in to illegals back in 1998. Not such a soft heart for Branch Davidians and the Weaver family, though.

  8. “The administration also plans to establish national standards for family detention housing.”

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio tent city. With double row rolls of concertina wire. After wandering through the Mexican desert, a place with three hots (bologna sammichs) and a cot should be paradise.
    Don’t like it? Then we WILL send you back across the border. After that, you’re free to make your own way home. Just don’t come back.
