American Bar Assn. Adresses Immigration-and-Children Issue

Once again the ABA stands up for social justice. Thank you, ABA. From the media release:

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7, 2018 — American Bar Association President Bob Carlson sent a letter
Tuesday to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, opposing proposed changes to the Flores Settlement Agreement, or FSA. The settlement restricts the time children can be held in immigration detention and sets minimum standards for their care while in custody.

“The proposed regulations would essentially authorize the indefinite detention of children and codify the practice of family separation,” Carlson wrote. “As such, they are antithetical to the purpose of the FSA.”
