The Trump administration has been fighting to undo the rules that dictate how US Immigration treats migrant children who enter the country illegally.

Those rules were established by a court agreement called the Flores settlement.

Amnesty International says Immigration officials are turning the children over to the Office of Refugee Resettlement—which is part of HHS, not immigration.

ORR says it’s not bound by the same rules as Immigration.

Alexandra Limon reports immigrants’ rights groups and some Democratic lawmakers are fighting back.
