IN AUGUST 2015 LUMIERE REFLECTED THE NEWS THAT JUDGE DOLLY GEE SAID DETAINED IMMIGRANT WOMEN, CHILDREN WHO WERE DETAINED AFTER CROSSING THE US-MEXICO BORDERS SHOULD BE RELEASED BECAUSE THEIR DETENTION VIOLATED A 1997 COURT SETTLEMENT THAT PROHIBITS MINORS FROM BEING HELD IN UNLICENSED, SECURE FACILITIES; ALLEGED NEWS. 
Texas is trying to classify Immigrant Detention Centers as Child-Care Facilities; Alleged News. 
A new rule submitted to the State's Health and Human Services Commission would create a new category of child-care license that would keep family detention centers open in Karnes City and Dilley that house migrant women and children caught crossing the Mexican border; Alleged News.
Texas Department of Family and Protective Services
In February 2016 it was reported that the rule has been in the works since September, as the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services dealt with a decision from federal Judge Dolly Gee that came down in July of last year; Alleged News.
Judge Gee ruled that the country's three detention centers release the children they were holding in 'deplorable conditions' that 'failed to meet even the minimum standard' for a safe and clean environment for children; Alleged News. 
Judge Gee wrote that the subpar conditions violated 1997's Flore v. Meese settlement agreement, a class action suit that set standards for how unaccompanied migrant children stopped at the border should be treated, namely, that they must be held in licensed facilities; Alleged News.
Judge Gee's decision applied that standard to children apprehended with their parents, too; Alleged News.
At the time, there were about 1,400 children and parents in the country's then three detention centers; Alleged News. 
Since that time, Pennsylvania shut down its Immigrant-Family Detention Center, Alleged News. 
What Are The Children Fleeing From?
Drugs and Gangs. In 2014, it was reported that Anthony O. Castellanos disappeared from his gang-ridden neighbourhood in Honduras; his younger brother Kenneth got on his bicycle to search for him; Alleged News.
They were found within days of each other, dead; Alleged News.
Anthony, 13, and a friend, had been shot in the head; Kenneth, 7, had been tortured and beaten with sticks and rocks, Alleged News.
These young innocents were among seven children murdered in the La Pradera neighbourhood of San Pedro Sula in April 2014 alone; part of a wave of gang violence that is claiming younger victims; Alleged News.
The killings are a great factor inspiring the migration of Central American children to the United States, which has sent an unprecedented number of unaccompanied minors across the Texas border; alleged News. 
How the Children Flee
In December 2014 and August 2015, Lumiere wrote of the dreadful plight of Little Innocents.
Stories of the torture and massacre of children abound.
One of immense pathos is that of a young girl resisting being robbed, was clubbed over the head and dragged off by two men who cut a hole in her throat, stuffed her panties in it, and left her body in a ravine; Alleged News.  and 
In Honduras, a young boy was gang raped after refusing to join a local drug gang; Alleged News.

US Southwest Border
An 11 year old Guatemalan boy was allegedly found dead in the brush a mile from the Mexican border. This little lad was found with no shirt, only a white rosary. 
This child, and others, represent the horrendous massacre of the Holy Innocents that is taking place in our own age.
What mute suffering have these children gone through, mewling for help that never ever came.
THE LUMINOUS 38th VICE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES FROM 1965 TO 1969, HUBERT HUMPHREY JR, WROTE;
'IT WAS ONCE SAID THAT THE MORAL TEST OF A GOVERNMENT IS HOW THAT GOVERNMENT TREATS THOSE THAT ARE IN THE DAWN OF LIFE, THE CHILDREN; THOSE WHO IN THE TWILIGHT OF LIFE, THE ELDERLY; AND THOSE THAT ARE IN THE SHADOWS OF LIFE, THE SICK, THE NEEDY, THE HANDICAPPED.'
