A.G. Underwood – Part Of Coalition Of 18 AGs – Opposes Trump Administration's Proposal Regarding
A.G. Underwood office press release ---------- Attorney General Barbara D. Underwood – part of a coalition of 18 attorneys general – today submitted a comment letter to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) expressing significant concerns with their proposed regulations that would roll back protections for children held in immigrant detention facilities. Those protections are the result of a settlement in prior litigation, the Flores Settlement Agreement, which has afforded all immigrant children a right to be released from detention, set standards for their conditions of confinement, and provided meaningful oversight and monitoring of their care while in custody. The Administration is seeking to replace the protections in the settlement agreement with the new, less protective regulations. To learn more click on the picture below to read the release.
