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.
