    Trump administration says it will detain migrant families for as long as it takes to

    Trump administration says it will detain migrant families for as long as it takes to prosecute them

    "The government will not separate families but detain families together during the pendency of immigration proceedings," a government filing states.

    by Dennis Romero and Associated Press / Jun.30.2018 / 12:46 AM ET / Updated 1:16 AM ET

    We believe that the Flores Agreement permits the Government to detain families together to comply with the nationwide order in Ms. L," a U.S. Department of Justice spokesman said. "We nevertheless continue to believe that an amendment of the Flores Agreement is appropriate to address this issue."

    In the filing the Department of Justice says it will keep families together until the parents' cases are adjudicated, which can take months.

    "To comply with the Ms. L injunction, the government will not separate families but detain families together during the pendency of immigration proceedings when they are apprehended at or between ports of entry and therefore subject to the Ms. L injunction," the "notice of compliance" reads.

    Such a move was feared by immigrant advocates who believed all along that President Trump, in signing an executive order to end the policy of separating children from parents at the southern border, intended to detain families indefinitely.

    The American Civil Liberties Union is disputing the Trump administration's interpretation of the ruling.

    Lee Gelernt, deputy director of its Immigrants' Rights Project, said the government has a constitutional obligation to release parents who don't pose a flight risk or danger, and that parents can choose to release their children if they don't want them to be in a family detention center.

    "Ultimately the (San Diego) case leaves it up to parents to decide what is in the best interests of the child," Gelernt said. "It would be flatly unconstitutional if the government's purpose in detaining families is punitive or is intended to serve as a deterrent."

    The administration's policy of separating families was touted as a deterrent to illegal immigration by Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Chief of Staff John Kelly as early as last year, but a surge in migrants fleeing violence in Central America hastened the action, officials said.

    Many of these people seek asylum in the United States after fleeing gang violence and threats in places like Honduras and El Salvador.

    A policy of holding families whole beyond 20 days could necessitate the construction of new facilities. NBC News found that, based on government data and a detention rate at the southern border of 420 parents and children a day, immigration authorities will run out of room for them in a matter of days.

    Hear the cases within 48 hours and load the buses up and deport the WHOLE family.

    They do NOT qualify for asylum.

    When the see caravans of buses headed back they will stop coming here.

    Overbreeding, poverty, violence and YOUR failed country is NO reason to come here and be granted to stay.


    CUT OFF ALL FOREIGN AID TO MEXICO AND CENTRAL AMERICA TO PAY FOR DEPORTATIONS!

    GO TO BRAZIL! GO TO AFRICA! GO TO CHINA, JAPAN, RUSSIA, EUROPE, NORWAY, ANYWHERE BUT HERE!

    USE YOUR 6 GRAND TO GET ON A PLANE AND GO OVERSEAS!

    I DO NOT WANT TO PAY TO WAREHOUSE THESE PEOPLE! NOW GET THEM OUT OF HERE PRONTO!

    I'm so sick of reading or hearing "fleeing gang violence and threats"! Why have kids in the first place if it's really so dangerous? And often, why have so many? Ugh.

    You are so 100% right.

    These people are disgusting low-life con artists that we shouldn't even be giving the time of day.
