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.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle
This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.
It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.
Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.
Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.
Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.
The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
