Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Matthew Continetti defended the Trump administration’s move to end the Flores Settlement Agreement during an appearance on Fox News’ Special Report Wednesday evening. The administration is attempting to replace the Flores Agreement with a rule that would expand the amount of time families could remain in detention at the border. The agreement currently restricts the amount of time children can be detained for at 20 days.

The administration has been trying unsuccessfully to end the agreement for more than a year, and the new rule will not go into effect until it passes judicial muster.
