Judge VS Government Prohibits Longer Detention of children. An American judge has drawn a line by a plan from the government of President Donald Trump for his immigration policy.
The judge in Los Angeles refused a request from the government to hold illegal immigrant children for longer, said MAG Mania.
The government wants to adjust a regulation from 1997. It stipulates that children may not be in detention for extended periods of time. The judge called the proposal of the Ministry of Justice “dubious” and “not convincing”.
The ministry wants to adjust the scheme after a judge last month determined that family members separated by the border guard must be reunited within thirty days.
According to the government, changing the system is the only way to keep migrants in detention and join with their children.
