The US rule is subject to clearance by a federal judge as it seeks to replace an existing rule that was born of a court agreement years ago, called the Flores settlement, which limited custody period to 20 days.
The Trump administration announced new rules Wednesday that would allow authorities to detain detained migrants indefinitely to enter the country illegally.
This rule must be passed by a federal judge because he is trying to replace an existing rule that was born from a court agreement years ago, called the Flores settlement, which limits the retention period to 20 days.
The new US rules, which are scheduled to be published in the Federal Register soon, will most likely be challenged in courts like all other rules and orders by the Trump administration.
“This US rule allows the federal government to enforce immigration laws as passed by Congress,” Kevin K. McAleenan, acting secretary of internal security, said in a statement.
President Donald Trump railed against the old rules as “capture and release”, and the new rules were proposed last fall, as part of a chain of rules and regulations intended to end illegal immigration and reform legal immigration.
