An immigrant advocacy group on Wednesday filed a civil rights complaint against the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), accusing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) of wrongfully detaining migrant children for longer than is legally allowed.

The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) alleged in a complaint filed with DHS’s Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties that five children at the Karnes County detention center in Karnes City, Texas, have been held for between 41 and 58 days.

The article goes on to state the following:

The federal government is barred from detaining undocumented children for more than 20 days under the 1997 Flores settlement agreement without releasing them into a sponsor’s custody.

“RAICES has recently seen a disturbing trend in which DHS has detained children and their fathers at the Karnes Detention Center far longer than the 20-day period contemplated by the FSA,” the complaint says.

“RAICES alleges that through these actions, multiple components of DHS, including [U.S. Customs and Border Protection], ICE, and [United States Citizenship and Immigration Services] violate the civil rights and civil liberties of these children and their fathers,” it continues.
