DHS Announces New Rule Ending "Catch and Release," Will Permit Families to be Detained Together Until Their Immigration Hearings

So we're not going to "separate families" any longer.

Of course, the left and the NeverTrumpers (but I repeat myself) are now complaining about not separating children from parents.

You'd almost start to think that it's not "the horror of family separation" they oppose, but rather any border enforcement and any deportation of illegals.

You'd almost think that they know it's politically unpopular to announce their actual goal of Open Borders, so they instead pick and paw at every tiny aspect of border enforcement so they can agitate for Open Borders without admitting they're doing so.

To address the unprecedented flow of families across the Southwest border, the Trump administration on Wednesday announced regulations that will allow families to be detained together, pending disposition of their immigration hearings.

The goal is to end "catch and release." Asylum-seeking families will no longer be released into the United States with a promise to appear in immigration court -- promises that are mostly not kept, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan noted.

...

Under the current interpretation of the Flores settlement, families with minor children must be released within 20 days, on a promise to appear for their hearings, which may take years to happen.

"The Flores settlement is operationally outdated and does not respond to the current immigration crisis," McAleenan told the news conference.
