Trump wants to imprison children in detention centers for longer. Since the '97 "Flores Agreement" they are supposed to only keep families for 20 days. Now they plan to indefinitely detain immigrant families in custody. It's cruel beyond imagination.
The proposed termination of the Flores agreement is President Trump’s most aggressive — and most legally suspect — attempt to circumvent legal protections for undocumented children since his disastrous family separation policy. My latest
Children's lives and safety are at risk without the critical protections provided by the Flores agreement, reports. AAP opposes the detention of immigrant children, which could stretch indefinitely under a federal plan.
JUST IN: The Trump admin is finalizing the family detention rule, which would effectively end the Flores Agreement & allow the govn't to detain immigrant children & families INDEFINITELY. The racist & xenophobic cruelty of this administration has no end.
