Scanning through Flores reg - will highlight pieces in this thread below. PG 2: "Most prominently, the rule would create an alternative to the existing licensed program requirement for family residential centers, so that ICE may use appropriate facilities to detain family units"
This part is basically them arguing that they need a licensing workaround to be able to build more jails that house moms and kids. You know, like the ones where that 3 year old recently died after leaving the conditions there. #FamiliesBelongTogether
Just highlighting this "her" here, as a reminder that our DHS Sec is @SecNielsen and she is seeking to build more prisons for kids and still hasn't been held accountable for ripping children from their parents in the first place. #FamiliesBelongTogether
This part is where they talk about potential increased costs and say that they are trying to find a way to keep families in jails LONGER and so there may be increased costs associated. #FamiliesBelongTogether

Important thread below about a horrific human rights tragedy happening that no one is paying attention about, PLEASE PLEASE read through it: 👇🏽#ForBlackMauritanians
Mauritanians fled to the United States in the 90’s 00’s seeking asylum. Many were granted the ability to lawfully stay here due to the live-endangering risk of return, but many others missed the 1 year deadline due to not understanding our legal system, getting bad advice, etc 2/
Because things are so bad for black Mauritanians and it would be dangerous to send them back, ICE put those without status under orders of supervision to stay here but check in with the govt regularly. Well, now we have a new ICE with new rules 3/

DACA litigation update thread - it's not really news, but helps give continued context, so DOJ just filed in the DC litigation. As a reminder, the DC litigation is the one that a couple weeks ago went above & beyond the 9th & 2nd Circuit injunctions & told the govt. to....1/
not only keep renewals going, but to restart the ability for NEW DACA applications to be filed. This would be like teenagers who are 15 and wanting to get work authorization, driver's licenses, etc. Anyway - this was a big victory led by Microsoft, Princeton, NAACP, etc. 2/
plane wifi sucks, I may be another 20 min on the rest of this sorry lol.....but basically the govt. argues that they'll have harm by having to manage mailboxes and that would be against the public interest. I generally think teenagers raised in America not having access to 3/

Some of the logistics involved in helping a reunited family upon reunification:

The place of reunification (of the ones that happened yesterday) is based on wherever the govt sent the child when they took the child from that parent at the Southern border (anywhere in US)

Remember when we said kids were being sent everywhere without their parents, well they were. So now that they are under the government's oversight as they pursue their asylum claims, where they are reunified is not where this family likely ends up. 2/
So once someone is reunited, it's kinda like we don't care where we put you in jail or took your child to this is where you end up while you pursue your claims. Go forth & figure it out. It's the NGO community that is doing what it can to be supportive after that moment 3/

When the govt starts to pat itself on the back for reuniting small babies on Tuesday please remember the following:

1. The only reason they’re doing this is because the litigators at the ACLU got a court order mandating it.


2. They’ve openly admitted to not being able to fully account for where the parents of the 4&under kids. And so they’ll only be helping an estimate 50% of those 2/
3. As in they’ve likely deported parents of nonverbal infants who ya know can’t say their names to caseworkers n such 3/

We need to get these mothers out of Hutto & reunited with their children! Please read these heart breaking accounts from women inside this detention center. #FamiliesBelongTogether thread 1/…
One mother writes "“We beg you to help us, return our children. Our children are very desperate. My son asks me to get him out and I’m powerless here.”… #FamiliesBelongTogether
Another mom writes: "It’s been a month since they snatched him away and there are moments when I can’t go on" #ReuniteThe2300…
