DOJ Takes First Steps Toward Indefinite Detention Of Families | HuffPost
The Trump administration is now fighting in court for the ability to lock up migrant children indefinitely — along with their parents.
The Department of Justice filed an emergency motion in federal court on Thursday to modify a 1997 settlement that prevents the government from detaining migrant children longer than 20 days. Ending the limitations on the length of time kids can be detained, the administration argues, is the only tenable alternative to splitting up families that are apprehended crossing the border illegally.
Although the Trump administration argues the changes it outlined on Thursday are the only way to end family separations, the filing suggests parents and kids could be split up again down the road.
LEGAL Asylum seekers are NOT CRIMINALS. America is descending into a fear and hate based racist fascism.
Trump hates and fears all immigrants. He sincerely believes that they are all criminals, so he is locking them all up, including babies and children.
The fear and hatred is so deep, that the final solution is just the next logical step.
