Where are the children?
A new report by the Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services estimates that thousands of children were being separated from their parents for at least one year before the administration announced their separation policy to the public. HHS officials failed to keep records of the identity or tracking of these children because they say they were not legally required to do so before the June 2018 court order. “We don’t have any information on the children that were released prior to the court order,“ says the assistant Inspector General for HHS.
Where are the children now? How old are they? Are they with relatives? Are they in detention centers? Were these children old enough to even know their own names?
PLEDGE FOR IMMIGRANT JUSTICE
We’ve watched in horror as the government separated families and tear gassed children at the border. We’ve witnessed the death of multiple children who were detained in immigration centers. This is unacceptable.
Together, we can hold our elected officials, leaders and representatives responsible for creating the change we need. We welcome anyone to take the Pledge for Immigrant Justice, add their name and commit to justice for immigrant children and their families.
