[su_box title=”Flores Settlement Agreement”]Established in 1997, the Flores Settlement Agreement was a federal ruling that forbid the Border Patrol from holding unaccompanied minors for more than 72 hours. The Flores Settlement Agreement also set standards for unaccompanied minors in custody, which included supervised care for children, food, sanitary living conditions and grooming products. On Aug. 21, president Trump announced a new rule that would incarcerate families indefinitely, a move that is being challenged by 20 states via a lawsuit.[/su_box]
