Resource: Flores v. Barr

By: Juvenile Law Center

September 4, 2019

Juvenile Law Center joined Children’s Rights and seven other children’s advocacy organizations on an amicus brief filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California in support of plaintiffs, including Jenny Flores and other unaccompanied migrant children. Amici argued that regulations released in August 2019 by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are inconsistent with the Flores Settlement Agreement (FSA), violated state licensing requirements required by the FSA, and put children at risk of serious harm or even death.
