As Trump-era policies protecting America’s borders have been undone by the new administration, illegal immigrants are being held in facilities illegally. White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed these laws are really more like guidelines. “The objective is to move kids, unaccompanied minors as quickly as possible under 72 hours to these HHS fund sponsored facilities, which is the one where we’ve been referring to in Texas. Some, unfortunately, did stay four days, five days or longer, but the objective is to move them as quickly as possible to the HHS sponsored facilities.” Psaki added the options for non-citizens seeking asylum were slim to none. “We can quickly transfer them from CBP to these HHS run facilities. That’s one option, or we can put them with families and sponsors without any vetting.” Authorities detained roughly 6,000 children last month, and they project 9,000 more arrests in February.
