Imprisoned children may apply for judicial review in any U.S. district court having jurisdiction to challenge their accommodation arrangement or the institution`s failure to comply with the standards established in comparison. The Flores regime requires that minors in INS detention be placed in institutions that meet certain standards, including state standards for accommodation and care of dependent children. The comparison also establishes a national licensing authority for detention facilities and defines a “licensed program” as any program, agency or organization authorized by a competent public authority to provide housing, group or care services to dependent children. On January 17, 1997, both parties signed the class action agreement in Flores v. Reno, the Flores Settlement Agreement (ASL), which binds the defendants – the federal authorities.  The Women`s Refugee Commission has published a context of flores` colonization and family separation at the border. The dispute was brought in the flores v. Meese, filed on July 11, 1985 by the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law (CHRCL) and two other organizations on behalf of underage immigrants, including Jenny Lisette Flores, who had been placed in a detention center for adult males and women after being arrested by the former Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), when she attempted to illegally cross the border between Mexico and the United States. . . .
