The nonprofit Aldea – The People`s Justice Center and The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services argued that the agreement would require families to separate as adult inmates to allow their children to remain in prison or move into a sponsor. (CN) — After a group of collective advocacy groups that were preparing to intervene earlier this week, the Justice Department on Thursday asked a federal judge to declare the Class of The Flores Class of Class, which deals with the detention of immigrant children, and terminate the transaction contract. The order applies to the approximately 2,100 unaccompanied minors in ORR detention, as well as to the 342 children detained with their families in the three ICE family prisons. The government has released hundreds of migrant children since Gee issued an injunction in March demanding their swift release in accordance with the Flores agreement. But on Friday, Gee said “greater speed” was needed to remove more miners from the Kongregate settings. In September, the district court, under the control of the Flores Transaction Treaty, rejected the proposed regulations as incompatible with the provisions of the agreement, so that these provisions must remain in force for the children of migrants. Quoted in his verdict had been an amicus letter that joined ZERO TO THREE. Meanwhile, the government challenged the ruling in the Ninth District Court. ZERO TO THREE joined another letter from Amicus opposing the appeal. Peter Schey, one of two lawyers who filed the original complaint that motivated Flores` agreement, welcomed Friday`s order. The 1997 transaction agreement in Flores/. Reno established national standards for the treatment and accommodation of minors detained at the time by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). THE INS`s commitments under the agreement are now under the jurisdiction of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Health and Human Services` Office of Refugee Resettettment (ORR).

It also requires that children who remain in federal detention be placed in the least restrictive environment and require the provision of information, treatment and services. In the colony, federal authorities are invited to “treat all minors with dignity, respect and special concern for their particular vulnerability as minors.
