    Nearly 30 families to be released from South Texas detention center

    Nearly 30 families to be released from South Texas detention center

    President Trump signed an order blocking asylum claims for migrants

    Nearly 30 families are set to be released from a South Texas detention center after a federal judge blocked new rules by President Donald Trump that limited the ability of immigrants to request asylum.


    Twenty-nine families were ordered to be released from the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, according to a news release from Amnesty International.


    Dilley is about 60 miles southeast of San Antonio.


    Amnesty International is a Nobel Peace Prize-winning global movement of more than 7 million people.The organization investigates and exposes abuses, educates and mobilizes the public, and works to protect people, according to its website.


    Gloria and her 12-year-old daughter, Devora, are one of the families set to be released. The two fled Honduras and were separated for 53 days before arriving in Dilley in July, according to a news release from Amnesty International.


    "Gloria fled Honduras after enduring years of sexual assault by Devora’s father," the release reads. Her injuries from being brutally raped are so severe that she underwent surgery, but at Dilley there is no gynecologist to give her follow-up care or help manage her pain."


    Many families at Dilley come from Central America, especially from a region known as the Northern Triangle. That includes El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, the release states.


    Amnesty International documented history of violence and insecurity in the region.


    U.S. District Judge Hon Tigar on Monday ruled the Trump administration's policy of cutting off asylum to immigrants who enter the country illegally appears to conflict with a U.S. law that allows them to do so, USA Today reported.


    That law, The 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, allows any foreigner arriving to the U.S. to apply for asylum. Trump attempted to overrule the act by signing a proclamation Nov. 9 ending the ability of immigrants to request asylum if they enter the U.S. illegally, USA Today reported.


    “This is a step in the right direction, but we must make sure everyone arriving in the USA is given a fair hearing and humane treatment," Rebecca Ma, associate campaigner at Amnesty International USA, said in the release. "Right now, families in a caravan are on their way to seek safety and a better life. They should be met with compassion, not contempt."


    "It is unconscionable to criminalize mothers, fathers, and children who have lost everything," she continued. "The administration must immediately abandon plans to build more detention centers and tent cities."
