Trump administration to lift limits on detention for migrant families

Trump considering payroll tax cuts amid recession fears Trump Admin Plans to End Limits on How Long It Can Detain Children

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, in an August 21 news release, said the administration's announcement was "the latest attack on the most vulnerable among us" and removing the time restriction amounted to "essentially allowing unlimited incarceration of children and families". Officials said the families would receive mental health treatment, counselling and other services.

Under the new rule, the administration would be free to send families who are caught crossing the border illegally to a family residential center to be held for as long as it takes for their immigration cases to be decided. The implementation deadline could slip, however, depending on the success of the likely court challenges.

Tightening immigration is a signature issue for President Donald Trump, aimed at restricting the movement of asylum seekers in the country and deterring more migrants from crossing the border.

He also cited the influx of migrants from 2014 to 2015 - 68,000 migrants according to McAleenan - in the "first family crisis" under the Obama administration: "When the initial decision was made to detain families through their proceedings by the Department of Homeland Security at that time...the message went out".

Legal challenges have held up many of Trump's initiatives, but immigration advocates say he has managed to build an "invisible wall" through executive actions bypassing Congress. It was ruled that the Flores agreement applied not only to unaccompanied minors but also to children who arrived with adults.

The Trump administration on Wednesday unveiled new rules that would allow officials to detain migrant families indefinitely while judges consider whether to grant them asylum in the United States. Experts have said such a move would run afoul of the US Constitution.

On Wednesday, Trump told reporters his administration was seriously looking at ending the right of citizenship for children born to noncitizens within the United States.

"We already have about 11,000 children - a lot of them are unaccompanied - being held in a gulag across America", Sen.

"Large numbers of alien families are entering illegally across the southern border, hoping that they will be released into the interior rather than detained during their removal proceedings", read a statement from the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Health and Human Services.

DHS officials say they have apprehended 390,000 family units since last October.

He said detained families will be held at facilities such as one in Pennsylvania he described as a "campus-like setting" with "cushioned couches", and recreation facilities, where families are given three hot meals a day.

The administration has faced harsh criticism of its temporary border patrol stations, where lawyers and internal government watch-dogs reported hundreds of children and families being held in squalid conditions. "This rule is the Trump administration's attempt to rectify that, and in order to bring some standards of care for the children and keep the families together, which is precisely what I thought most reasonable people wanted".

Hundreds of families, however, are still being separated if the government deems the parent a risk to the child.
