Detencion de Familias

La Administración Trump está haciendo grandes cambios (negativos) que afectan la detención y liberación de los niños migrantes. El Departamento de Seguridad Nacional emitió nuevas reglas para revertir el acuerdo judicial de protección de 1997, conocido como Acuerdo Flores, que actualmente limita al gobierno a detener indefinidamente a los menores migrantes y garantiza su adecuada. seguridad y atención. Según el Acuerdo Flores, los menores detenidos generalmente deben ser liberados dentro de los 20 días. Las nuevas reglas buscan cambiar esa protección permitiendo la detencion indefinida de los menores y de la familia. Estas nuevos cambios causarán más hacinamiento y debilitarán la seguridad y el cuidado de los menores en custodia. Estas nuevas reglas no estarán en vigencia hasta Octubre, pero ya están enfrentando retos legales. 

Detention of Families

The Trump Administration is making major changes (for the worse) affecting the detention and release of migrant children. The Department of Homeland Security issued new rules the reversing the protections of a 1997 court agreement-known as the Flores Settlement-that currently restricts the government from detaining migrant children indefinitely and ensures their safety and proper care. Under the Flores Settlement Agreement, children detained in custody must generally be released within 20 days.

Attorney-Client Communication and Preparation

An important issue that I have encountered in practice is attorney-client communication and preparation. Immigration law, in particular, is a very uncertain area because most types of relief are discretionary, and policies can change without much notice. Thus, it is crucial for there to be open communication between the attorney and client, and for the client to be well prepared.
