17 states sue Trump administration over family separations

Trump We want border security not judges

Health and Human Services, which is in charge of the children, referred questions to the Justice Department.

That accord, known as the Flores agreement, says children can not be held for longer than 20 days, among other restrictions. He also noted that "the relationship between parent and child [] is constitutionally protected and well established". Many parents are in custody thousands of miles from their children, whom they have not been able to see and have rarely spoken to for a month or more. They've since been reunited; Ms. L cleared a key hurdle in her asylum case and was released from immigration detention. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record about a pending announcement. The group traveled to McAllen to pray for detained immigrants.

Judge Dana Sabraw of the US District Court for the Southern District of California [official website] issued a preliminary injunction [order, PDF] Tuesday against US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) [official website] practice of separating detained immigrant families.

The measure passed by the state Legislature last week changes wording in a law that allows a parent to designate a guardian should the parent become incapacitated.

Now the multiple federal agencies responsible for housing parents and children are racing the clock to either release or reunite all children with their parents within the rigid timeline established by Sabraw.

The Republican president bowed to public pressure last Wednesday, signing his executive order to "keep families together" in migrant detentions. It would also offer firepower to the families who have not been reunited in time to sue the government for violating their constitutional rights.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted that the administration's reversal was only temporary because the government is running out of resources.

Crotty heard arguments by lawyers earlier this month.

The boy ended up at a shelter in NY.

The rule pertains to children who have spent time in more restrictive custodial settings.

But it remains unclear how the administration will reunite the more than 2,300 children already separated from their families.

U.S. President Donald Trump waves as he boards Air Force One departing from Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, U.S. June 25, 2018. If the children are younger than 5, they must be reunited with their families within 14 days of the order. Two girls who stopped briefly in front of reporters said that they were doing well.

As protesters prepare to take to the streets, here's a look at the current situation on a variety of key immigration issues. His order only concerns the fallout from the Trump administration's decision to prosecute every person who crosses into the United States.

Kerry Kennedy, who heads the organization, says her mother is "very joyful" about participating in the protest. "I'm convinced that the people of this country support these efforts", Sessions said.

Protesters who stood in front of a Tacoma police officer's patrol auto refused to move.

"Defendants have made clear that the goal of separating families is not to protect children, but rather to create a public spectacle designed to deter potential immigrants from coming to the United States", the complaint said, adding that Trump's policy "is causing sever, intentional, and permanent trauma to the children and parents who are separated in furtherance of an illegitimate deterrence objective".
