New Rule Replacing Flores Settlement Agreement Announced

By CIS on August 21, 2019

The huge influx we have seen along the southwest border since the end of 2017 has largely been driven by parents arriving with children, expecting they would be released within 20 days, as required under a 2015 ruling by the federal judge who oversees the FSA. This ruling was challenged by the Obama administration.
