President Trump’s administration is going to announce Wednesday their plans to be able to hold migrant families in detention for longer periods of time than what is currently allowed under the Flores Settlement Agreement.
Under the agreement, unaccompanied children and most migrant families are only able to be held in government detention for no more than 20 days, according to ABC News.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Today 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.”
Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan and Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar are expected to make the announcement on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m.
