Rep. Sherrill Statement on Administration’s Push for Indefinite Child Detention

Parsippany, NJ — Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) released the following statement today after the administration announced a new regulation that would terminate the Flores settlement agreement, a court ruling that prevents the government from detaining immigrant children for more than 20 days:

 

“As a parent, I am horrified by the administration’s decision to pursue indefinite detention of immigrant children. This cruel attempt to roll back the Flores settlement does not fix our immigration system, is immoral, and it is certainly not in line with our American values. It is essential we have comprehensive immigration reform that both affirms the strength of our borders and respects the human rights of migrants, especially children.”
