WINNING: Trump Administration Set to Reverse ‘Family Unit’ Illegal Immigration Loophole

The Flores ruling requires that the federal government release family units of illegal immigrants from detention within a month.

The Trump administration is said to be preparing a change to the way in which the federal government detains family units of illegal immigrants.

Administration officials announced Wednesday that they will suspend the Flores agreement, a set of rules stemming from a 1992 court case regarding the detention of children and families in immigration detention facilities.

Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first broke news of the upcoming change to federal immigration practices on Tuesday.

The Flores agreement requires the federal government to release full family units in federal immigration detention in less than 20 days. The changes to the rule will remove this minimal cap to detention periods of illegal immigrant families, allowing the authorities to properly resolve court cases related to their presence in the country while they remain in federal custody.

Posing as family units, while often fraudulently using trafficked children as props, had proven to be an incredibly useful loophole for human smugglers and illegal immigrants seeking to gain legal residence in the United States. The abrogation of the Flores rule will make that tactic obsolete, as migrants who arrive with minors in tow will face the same detention practices used on other illegal immigrants.

The change will also serve to ameliorate instances of children being separated from their families in immigration detention. Individuals inclined to seek residence in the United States using the loophole will no longer be able to use their supposed children to do so, giving them no reason to take tragically exploited minors across the border in dangerous circumstances.

Speaking at a press conference about the rule change on Wednesday morning, Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan said that “no child should be a pawn in a scheme to manipulate our immigration system. This action by the administration is just one part of our overall effort, but it’s an essential one.”

It’s possible thousands of children will be spared a horrible experience being used as props for suspect criminal elements, thanks to the rule change.

Arizona Border Patrol Officer Stabbed Multiple Times, Shoots and Kills Criminal Alien

A Border Patrol officer patrolling the US-Mexico border shot and killed a man who stabbed him multiple times in Southern Arizona on Monday night.

CBP officials reported that the unnamed agent was patrolling near the transnational city of Nogales, Arizona, when he encountered a group of individuals he suspected to be aliens entering the country illegally. One man accompanying them group attacked the agent when he sought to apprehend the aliens, stabbing him multiple times.

The CBP agent went on to fatally shoot the alien, who may have been a smuggler moving a group of illegal migrants across the border. Deputies of the Santa Cruz Sheriff’s Office were called to provide backup, and the Border Patrol agent that was stabbed had to be airlifted to a Tucson hospital early on Tuesday morning. Fortunately, he was released from the hospital later the same day.

Cartel-affiliated criminal smugglers have increasingly sought to infiltrate the United States in Arizona, hoping to avoid a buffed border patrol presence in Texas and new wall construction in the most trafficked areas of the border.

Preliminary reports indicate that the Border Patrol agent may have been alone when he encountered the smuggler’s group of criminal aliens, a hazard that has resulted in violent attacks on Border Patrol agents by cartel-affiliated criminals before.

The FBI is reportedly investigating the incident. It’s unclear if the group of aliens encountered by the agent have been expelled under special coronavirus immigration regulations, transferred into the custody of immigration detention, or simply allowed to proceed into the country.
