TRUMP ADMIN. PROPOSES CHANGE THAT REMOVES “GOLDEN TICKET” INCENTIVE FOR BORDER TRAFFICKERS

Lord, we pray that this proposed change would help remove the incentive for traffickers across the border.

The Trump administration announced on Aug. 21 a new rule that replaces the Flores agreement, which has long guided how long families of immigrants can be held after crossing into the United States.

The will “will allow for termination of” the agreement, the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement, allowing the department and the Health and Human Services agency “to respond to significant statutory and operational changes that have occurred since the [Flores agreement] has been in place, including dramatic increases in the numbers of unaccompanied children and family units crossing into the United States.”

“Large numbers of alien families are entering illegally across the southern border, hoping that they will be released into the interior rather than detained during their removal proceedings. Promulgating this rule and seeking termination of the [Flores agreement] are important steps towards an immigration system that is humane and operates consistently with the intent of Congress,” the statement added.

The new rule will change the terms of the agreement, resulting in its termination, and will change the way U.S. agencies care for alien children, both those who arrive with family members and those who arrive unaccompanied. It includes removing the time limit for holding families.

“Today, the government has issued a critical rule that will permit the Department of Homeland Security to appropriately hold families together and improve the integrity of the immigration system,” said Kevin McAleenan, acting secretary of the department, in a statement. “This rule allows the federal government to enforce immigration laws as passed by Congress and ensures that all children in U.S. government custody are treated with dignity, respect, and special concern for their particular vulnerability.”

“In this rule, we are implementing the relevant and substantive portions of the Flores Settlement Agreement. … As before, HHS will continue to protect the safety and dignity of unaccompanied alien children in our custody,” added Alex Azar, secretary of Health and Human Services.

The Flores settlement forced Immigration and Customs Enforcement to release families that enter the United States after 20 days after a federal judge, U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee of the Central District of California, amended it in 2015 to include minors who arrive as part of a family unit. The 1997 agreement, reached during the Clinton administration, previously only applied to unaccompanied minors.

That expansion helped lead to the surge of family units arriving at the border. . . .

This fix is arguably the single most important of the series of interlocking actions the Trump administration has taken to address the border influx,” Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies, told the Washington Examiner.

This will make a big difference; one of the main incentives for people to come illegally with kids has been the guarantee of release after no more than a brief detention, and this will untie the government’s hands, and ensure humane treatment of the migrants as well. It was ludicrous that a single, overzealous judge has facilitated this influx, which has caused so many problems in so many American communities, so Trump is right to step in and negate her interpretation.”

  1. Father God give the leaders of the US wisdom and discernment. God, You are loving and righteousness. You discern motives and read hearts. Darkness cannot hide from You nor can it overcome You. We ask You Holy Spirit to intervene in the border crisis. We need Your solution because it will be loving and also just and righteous. May perverse hearts that rail against You be softened. In the powerful, holy name of Jesus, may the spirits of lies and chaos be exposed and cast out. They have no place on either side of the border. All land is Yours Father God Almighty and You have granted dominion, You have raised up leaders to administer and govern. May Your Spirit of order and peace rule and reign over the southern border.
    In Jesus Name

  2. Dear Lord please help us at our southern border. Please may less people come. May less abuse happen to people on both sides of the border. May Your will Father win out in this situation. You are the King of Kings please reign in our country. I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

  3. I thank you Father that You are in control of this change & though there will be a fight to prevent it ALL things must go through You & will happen according to Your will. AMEN So Be It!

  4. Praise God for the Constitution of the United States of America being upheld and not allow judges to rule against our Constitution b/c of their opinion. We need to be ever vigilant that our Constitution is upheld.
