More — Of The Violations Of Flores Court Orders, By Team Trump…

The magnitude of the Trump team’s contempt for federal court orders. . . is staggering.

Thirty days is the outside limit, under Flores — but see this, filed overnight in LA [in full — and a bit]:

. . . .[D]ata provided by Defendants to class counsel on a monthly basis indicates that during February 2020 ICE detained class members in ICE detention facilities as follows. It appears two (2) were apprehended in 2014. Five (5) (rather than 4 reported in my previous declaration) were apprehended in 2018 and it appears have been detained for over fourteen months. About ten (10) have been detained for about one year and another ten (10) have been detained for about eleven (11) months. About twenty-seven (27) (rather than 26 reported in my previous declaration) have been detained for about ten (10) months, sixteen (16) (rather than 15 reported in my previous declaration) have been detained for about nine (9) months, eleven (11) for about eight (8) months, fifty-nine (59) for about seven (7) months, ninety-six (96) for about six (6) months, two hundred and six (206) (rather than 205 reported in my previous declaration) for about five (5) months, one hundred and fiftytwo (152) (rather than 151 reported in my previous declaration) for about four (4) months, two hundred and ninety-four (294) (rather than 293 reported in my previous declaration) for about three (3) months, and nine hundred and eighty-one (981) (rather than 980 reported in my previous declaration) have been detained for two (2) months. . . .

Finally, as stated in my previous declaration [733-2] at Paragraph 7, it should be noted that Defendants’ counsel Nicole Murley informed me during our meet and confer held before Plaintiffs filed their application for a temporary restraining order that families held in ICE detention facilities are not being afforded Flores rights, namely pursuant to Settlement paragraphs 14, 18, 21-22 regarding release of minors or inquiries regarding a parents preference for their child to be transferred to a licensed facility.

This information is consistent with reports from counsel who represent detained families in ICE facilities, including Bridget Cambria who has for many years represented families at the Berks detention center, Shalyn Fluharty who directs the Dilley Pro Bono Project and for many years has represented detained families at the Dilley detention facility, and Andrea Meza, who is director of Family Detention Servicers Program representing families at the Karnes detention facility All three of these attorneys have provided declarations Plaintiffs have already filed regarding ICE’s complete failure to implement the release and transfer rights of class members at the three ICE family detention centers.

I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the foregoing is true and correct. . . .

/s/ [Counsel for Plaintiffs]. . . .

This is disgusting. Rest in peace, brother. . . with a sad smile, now.
