Proven: Aspartame Really is Poison
As cruel as the situation is, at least there is a legal standard which can be used to help get justice for these kids.
Now the Trump gang is taking all this ugliness further. They say that they are not bound by the Flores decision. They say that since two laws, the Homeland Security Act of 2002 and the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2008, were passed after the Flores decision, that they no longer have to abide by the Flores decision. The Trump Justice Department under Attorney General Jeff Sessions now says they have the legal right to put these children in prison with bonds set so high they children will agree to be deported – or else they have to stay indefinitely detained and with no right to a bond hearing, all of which was determined against the law in the 1997 decision.
On Monday, July 3, 2017, the U.S. Ninth Circuit court reviewed the Trump gang's current injustices, and did their best to slam home their message to the new Executive Branch in just a few words. “By their plain text, neither law [of those cited as justification for Sessions’ actions] explicitly terminates the right to a bond hearing.” The court went on to say that, “These statutes sought to protect a uniquely vulnerable population: unaccompanied children. … Congress desired to better provide for unaccompanied minors. Depriving these children of their existing right to a bond hearing is incompatible with such an aim.”
Rather than accept the legal decision in this open-andshut case, the evil Trump team told reporters that it is “reviewing the decision and considering next steps”. Apparently, they still see themselves as above the law, even in the most horrific of situations where immigrant children are held without bail hearings, stripsearched and assaulted on a daily basis.
Perhaps Attorney General Sessions and Trump should have their own children and grandchildren spend a few days living in the same cells as the immigrant children, subjected to the same treatment, and see how they like it and then imagine the prospect of no hope of it ending, then let the kids and grand kids provide some advise.
