Tahirih Comments on Flores Regulation
The Tahirih Justice Center submitted these comments to the Department of Homeland Security in response to the proposed rule relating to the apprehension, processing, care and custody of alien minors and unaccompanied alien children, which will allow the indefinite detention of immigration children.
