Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Obama Admin Charged with Violating Court Order on Detaining Refugee Children

Rate this Entry
The Obama administration has landed back in Court due to their policy of locking Central American mothers and children in jails where they are deprived of decent food, water and sanitary conditions, and forced to sleep on a concrete floors.

A motion was filed in the U.S. District Court of Central District of California last night that alleges that the Obama administration has violated U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee's previous ruling prohibiting the extended incarceration of children in jails. Judge Gee ruled that the Obama administration child detention policy was in direct violation of a settlement dating back to January 28, 1997.

Peter Schey, President and Executive Director of the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law, commented that the Obama administration has engaged in conduct that is “lawless and contemptuous,” and has "consistently violated the Settlement since the summer of 2014 and this Court’s Orders since August 2015.” Mr. Schey remarked that "a detention system that is incompatible with the concept of human dignity and has no place in a civilized society."

Thank you Mr. Schey for your humanity.

    Correction, Clinton was President in 1997, which makes this almost exclusively a Democratic Administration issue; the Flores litigation was originally filed in response to actions of the Reagan Administration in 1986. George W. Bush, for all his numerous faults, was actually a compassionate President on immigration (he lobbied his own party hard for immigration reform, he signed SIJS into law. As a progressive Democrat, this is beyond disheartening to me.

    He was President in 1996, too, when IIRIRA was enacted.

    It's certainly true that we should be providing better detention facilities for alien women and children, but as I point out in another comment in today's ILW.com, our national debt is closing in on $20 trillions. I am concerned about how we would we pay for proper facilities.

    Has anyone asked Hillary how she would raise the funds needed to provide proper care for women and children who are in detention pending hearings?

    For that matter, has anyone asked Trump how he would generate the funds needed to provide proper detention facilities? I'll bet he would have an answer. But he might not have answers to questions about how he would fund the enforcement programs he is promising his supporters. ICE only has 8,000 officers for interior enforcement. Compare that the 34,400 uniformed officers in the NYC police department if you can't see how inadequate 8,000 ICE officers are for enforcing the immigration laws throughout the entire United States.
