One of the key sticking points in negotiations over border security was immigration detention.
The deal, as drafted, is an attempt to rein in immigrant detention, which has greatly expanded under Trump. This explainer from Vox’s Dara Lind is a must read.
It’s not just a partisan fight. It’s an inter-branch fight over whether the deference that the executive branch generally gets on immigration extends to budgeting, or whether Congress’ “power of the purse” can force the administration to make decisions about who it really needs to detain. And while the detention deal is a new effort by Congress to rein in the executive branch, we won’t know for several months whether it’s worked.
