U.S. President Donald Trump's administration said Thursday it would no longer presume that many pregnant women detained by immigration authorities should be released from custody, reversing an Obama-era directive.During President Barack Obama's administration, ICE in 2016 announced that pregnant women not subject to mandatory detention should be presumptively released.Thirty-five pregnant women are in ICE custody, all subject to mandatory detention, he said.Since the policy was implemented in December, Miller said, 506 pregnant women have been detained by ICE.
