Reno v. Flores, the Supreme Court ruled on 23 March 1993 that, while «the children in question had a constitutional interest in the freedom of institutional detention», the court overturned the 1991 Court of Appeal`s decision in the Flores/Flores case. Meese, because the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) Regulations 8 CFR 242.24 met the requirements of a formal procedure. The NSO Regulation – 8 CFR 242.24 – «generally authorizes the release of a young foreign national imprisoned in order of preference to a parent, legal guardian or certain close adult relatives of the young person, unless the NSO has found that detention was necessary to ensure an appearance or to ensure the safety of the adolescent or others.» [23] [12] This meant that, in limited circumstances, the youth could be released «to another person who has executed an agreement to care for the young person and guarantee the youth`s participation in future immigration proceedings.» Young people who are not released would «generally» require «appropriate accommodation in an institution that, in accordance with the 1987 Approval Order, must meet certain standards of care.» [12] [Notes 5] [Notes 6] KELLY: Flores appeal went all the way to the Supreme Court. Finally, in 1997, the two sides signed an agreement regulating the treatment of the children of migrants in detention. The Flores colony has been reviewed several times, most recently in 2015, when the Obama administration tried to find an exception for minors who came to the United States with their parents. It came in the midst of an increase in Immigrant families from Central America, and the government wanted to arrest some of them as long as it took to process their affairs. A federal judge in California said no, which brings us to yesterday, when the Trump administration filed a very similar request. And the same federal judge, Dolly Gee, will hear the case 33 years after Carlos Holguin`s first complaint on behalf of Jenny Flores. No no. I think the only thing that perhaps worries them is that the regulations should comply with the Flores regulations and that seems to prevent them from actually complying with their agreement and adopting the rules that the regulations require.

Under the agreement, the NSIS is required to place minors in the least restrictive environment, adapted to the child`s age and specific needs, including rights, safe and sanitary facilities, toilets and sinks, drinking water and food, medical assistance, temperature control, monitoring and contact with family members. Under the control of the U.S. District Court of the Central District of California, the Clinton administration agreed with CHRCL on establishing rules for the treatment of children in custody. The agreement was to expire 45 days after the release of the federal government`s orders on the implementation of Flores, freeing the detention of federal government minors from judicial supervision. But the federal government has never adopted regulations on this issue and the Flores agreement continues to apply. The dispute emerged in the action of Flores v. Meese filed on July 11, 1985 by the Centre for Human Rights and Constitutional Law (CHRCL) and two other organizations on behalf of minor immigrants, including Jenny Lisette Flores, who had been placed in a detention centre for adult men and women after being arrested by the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) while attempting to cross the Mexican-U.S. border illegally. As part of the Flores comparison and current circumstances, DHS states that it generally cannot keep extraterrestrial children and their parents together for longer periods. [4] In his executive order of June 20, 2018, President Trump ordered then-General Jeff Sessions to ask the Central District Court of California to «modify» the Flores agreement to «allow the government to keep foreign families together for a long period of time,» which would include the time that could be considered for family immigration proceedings and possible «criminal proceedings for illegal entry into the United States.» [4]:2 On July 9, the
