CHRCL, May 31, 2019 - "Today we filed a motion to enforce the Flores settlement challenging the lengthy detention of children at the prison-like detention camp for unaccompanied minors located at Homestead, Florida. The motion details the long-term physical and psychological harm these detention conditions cause. Homestead should be immediately shut down and the thousands of children detained there placed in licensed group homes close to their families and sponsors. This would cut the cost of detention by half, and be far less harmful to the safety and well-being of detained minors. We are asking the Court to order that unaccompanied minors may not be detained at Homestead for more than twenty days and must by then either be released to a family member or transferred to a facility licensed for the care of dependent children.
