Flores Agreement 9Th Circuit
The case was filed on July 11, 1985 by the Centre for Human Rights and Constitutional Law (CHRCL) and two other organizations on behalf of minor immigrants, including Jenny Lisette Flores, who had been placed in a male and female adult detention facility after being stopped by the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to cross the Mexican-U.S. border illegally. As part of the Flores comparison and current circumstances, DHS states that it generally cannot keep extraterrestrial children and their parents together for longer periods.  In his executive order of June 20, 2018, President Trump ordered then-General Jeff Sessions to ask the Central District Court of California to „modify“ the Flores agreement to „allow the government to keep foreign families together for a long period of time,“ which would include the time that could be considered for family immigration proceedings and possible „criminal proceedings for illegal entry into the United States.“ :2 On July 9, Judge Gee of the Federal District of California ruled that there was no basis for an amendment to the 1997 Flores Settlement Agreement (FSA), which „requires that children be released within 20 days for licensed child care programs.“  The U.S. government and the Center for Human Rights and human rights law (CHRCL) reached the Flores agreement in 1997, after lawyers filed a class action against the U.S. government on behalf of immigrant children imprisoned in 1985. Among the complainants was a 15-year-old girl named Jenny Lisette Flores, who became the boss of the case. Flores had been held for two months in an Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) facility under substandard conditions, where she was housed next to adults and was subject to regular searches. CHRCL said the federal government, along with children of migrants like Flores, had violated its rights to a proper trial. In recent years, the number of foreigners who have attempted to initiate asylum proceedings with „credible fears“ of persecution during expedited deportation – either at ports of entry or between them – has increased sharply, largely because of the conciliation agreement reached by Flores and Justice Gee.
