Feinstein on Attempt to Eliminate Flores Settlement Agreement

Washington—Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released the following statement on the administration’s attempt to eliminate the Flores Settlement Agreement:

“I strongly support the Flores Settlement Agreement, which provides serious and significant protection for immigrant children. Under the Flores Agreement, ICE can only hold children in facilities that meet minimum standards and cannot hold them longer than 20 days.

“Any effort to eliminate the Flores Agreement will be met with the most strenuous opposition we can mount.”
