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.

President Trump Preparing New Executive Order to Rescind DACA Amnesty After SCOTUS Decision

SCOTUS threw out the last one on procedural grounds.



White House sources have indicated that President Donald Trump is planning on signing a new executive order to terminate President Obama’s DACA amnesty program this week.

The Supreme Court had thrown out an earlier executive order to terminate the program in a court ruling last month, terminating the federal drive to enforce American immigration laws on supposed procedural inadequacies.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggested that the President would soon sign a new executive order to terminate the amnesty program, while speaking on Fox and Friends on Monday morning. “Starting this week, you’ll see executive orders, you’ll see business that actually goes forward from the Oval Office when Congress doesn’t act.

The President has spoken openly of his intention to terminate DACA a second time after the Supreme Court’s arbitrary decision. The court’s ruling had established that the President has complete authority to terminate the amnesty for a selected population of almost a million illegal immigrants, expanded by President Obama without congressional approval in 2014.

The court’s own ruling will likely prevent the judicial branch from overthrowing a second DACA termination executive order, having admitted that the federal government has every right to terminate the program that was implemented on a whim.

Liberal billionaire oligarchs such as George Soros and Charles Koch continue to fund an influence campaign to maintain the amnesty order, hoping to secure a status quo of open borders and weak immigration laws with the hopes of delivering a broad pool of affordable labor for large businesses and the American elite.
