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.
Lawyers inspecting a detention center near El Paso, TX described horrendous conditions for the children. No child should experience such neglect. We must speak up and demand action from the Trump administration and Congress today!

Every day, new stories emerge about the thousands of children who are in desperate need of care and relief at the U.S. border. Here are three ways that you can make a real, tangible difference for those children.
Today, an estimated 3,500 people – including children – are fleeing extreme poverty and violence and seeking refuge in the U.S. They deserve to be treated with compassion and respect.
