Attorneys want judge to stop Trump plan on migrant families..Here's Why

On Friday, Attorneys asked a judge to reject Trump administration plans to detain migrant families longer than they’re currently permitted and to remove court oversight of how children are treated in government custody.

The lawyers want US District Court Judge Dolly Gee to block the government from implementing the rules, saying prolonged detention causes life-long trauma and that children in government custody are sometimes held in deplorable conditions. Last week, the US Department of Homeland Security said it would issue new regulations on how migrant children are treated.

A legal settlement overseen by the federal courts and known widely as the Flores agreement requires the government to keep children in the least restrictive setting and to release them as quickly as possible, generally after 20 days in detention.
