Topline: Migrants crossing the southern U.S. border could be detained indefinitely after the Trump administration scrapped a decades old settlement that limits the detention of migrant children to 20 days. Officials believe the policy is encouraging border crossings.The measure will get rid of the 1997 Flores vs. Reno agreement, which determined a basic level of care for undocumented children in immigrant detention in the U.S., and maintained that they could be released to their parents or relatives within 20 days.Kevin McAleenan, acting Homeland Security Secretary, said the rule will come into effect in 60 days, but legal challenges are expected. He said: This rule allows the federal government to enforce immigration laws as passed by Congress and ensures that all children in US government custody are treated with dignity, respect, and special concern for their particular vulnerability. Homeland Security officials think the settlement amp; is behind an increase in migrants crossing the border. The new rules could result in immigrant families coming to the U.S. illegally being sent to family detention centers for as long as their case moves through the courts.The administration was widely criticized for separating families who crossed the border illegally last year. Adults were placed in prison awaiting trial for breaking immigration laws, while children were detained by the Department of Health and Human Services. Despite Trump s executive order to reverse the zero tolerance policy, reports of family separations continue.
