Stop the Indefinite Detention of Children!
After the public outcry in response to separated migrant children held in cages, the solution proposed by the Trump administration is to hold them in cages with their parents—with no time limit! Announced in early September, the new rule would reverse the long-standing Flores Agreement, which outlines standards of care and stipulates a 22-day maximum detention period for minors. The most effective way to fight back against this proposal is to get as many people as possible to participate in the 60-day public comment period which ends on November 6, 2018. Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) has made this easy by providing a toolkit to submit comments and organize an event to collect them.
