Juvenile Law and Homeland Security

There are no provisions, that I'm aware of, in the Juvenile Code that consider parents who are detainees under the new Homeland Security Act. An Ohio case is the first case that I've heard of that comes even peripherally close to having to consider the issues involved. Anyone familiar with the Homeland Security Act enough to enlighten me, please email us. I'd love to know if it will have any impact on the standard time limits imposed for abuse, neglect, dependency cases.
