The Administration is seeking to pass a new regulation called the “Apprehension, Processing, Care, and Custody of Alien Minors and Unaccompanied Alien Children” -- an end-run around the court’s limits which prohibit children from being detained indefinitely.
All-of-us must raise our voices in support of the detained children who can’t raise theirs.
Submit comments by November 6 on the regulation.
Here is a helpful script (from our friend Jen Hofmann): “I oppose the government’s proposal to end the Flores Agreement because I value the dignity and well-being of all people, especially vulnerable, migrant children in U.S. government custody. I do not want my tax dollar to fund indefinite detention, fewer legal protections, and unregulated custody of minors. I want the Flores Agreement upheld to reduce and limit detention of children.”
