Trump admin expected to allow longer detention of illegal migrant families

The Trump administration on Wednesday unveiled a plan to detain migrant families and children for longer periods of time than currently allowed. For more than two decades, the Flores Agreement has governed the care of migrant children in U.S. custody. Under the administration’s rule, there would not be a limit to the number of days families and children could be detained.

Don’t come here illegally if you don’t want to be detained. It isn’t rocket science.

Gotta love the headline wording "migrants", no it's illegal immigrants, migrants go home, immigrants stay legally or not.

Should make the dems happy, means illegals get to stay in the US for longer.

Shouldn't be that controversial of an issue. If you do bad you get spanked. It's like Fucking Binary levels of simplicity.

MSM first move think of children. In the issue of fairness the parents of these children care more about their selfish desire so they take their kids on the journey where they could be raped or killed but we're the bad guys.

I'm all in favor of anything to get crappy parents to stop sending thier kids into harm's way. this is a really a cynical game the Democrats are playing to make people look bad while not actually caring about the kids that don't even make the trip.

What else would we do with them? Release them onto the streets to fend for themselves? It's either indefinite detention or send them home, and the Democrats don't want these illegals sent home. So there ya go.

Criminals don't stay with their kids, it's a simple concept.

As the article points out, this policy is going to be challenged the instant it is completed. Amazing how much effort is placed into trying to prevent any progress on the whole wall and enforcement of the immigration laws... instead of trying to work with Trump and the Republicans on overhauling the immigration laws and process.
