Trump to Detain Immigrants Even Longer

Under the 1997 Flores agreement, immigrants with political asylum requests were released after twenty days in detention pending their court hearing. President Trump called this “catch and release,” like these immigrants are animals, which Trump has said so before.

Now, the Trump administration is abandoning the court ruling and is looking to detain families until their case goes to court. One question- how much is this going to cost and who profits from this? The answer: a lot and private companies are making money hands over fist with immigration detention centers. It’s the new Medicaid fraud of the Trump era.

Another point: let’s say a case takes a year or two to finalize and the immigrant wins. Was the child being educated while detained, or is that child now a year or two behind in his education?

“It is sickening to see the United States government looking for ways to jail more children for longer. And it’s yet another example of the Trump administration’s hostility toward immigrants resulting in a policy incompatible with the most basic human values.” – Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project.

“Today, legal loopholes significantly hinder the department’s ability to appropriately detain and promptly remove family units that have no legal basis to remain in the country. This rule addresses one of the primary pull factors for illegal immigration and allows the federal government to enforce immigration laws as passed by Congress.” – Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen
