Keep Children Safe at the Border
Children’s rights continue to be violated at the U.S. – Mexico border. Vulnerable children are being held in custody longer than the legal limit, separated from their families, denied basic care and more.
Every child has a right to safety and protection.
What We’re Doing
Save the Children Action Network is advocating to protect children’s rights at the border.
We’re also urging our leaders to address the root causes of migration in Central America.
Immigration officials are forcing parents to make an impossible choice: stay together in detention or send their children away. Tell Congress and the president that this illegal practice must end!
On June 18, the Supreme Court ruled that the administration’s attempt at ending DACA program was not lawful. As a former Dreamer, I know how important that decision is for kids.
While immigration is an intensely complex topic, our lawmakers need to remember that children are at the heart of the debate. And no matter what side of the aisle you’re on, children deserve care and respect.
