In the 1990s, a court order led to the Flores agreement, which protects migrant children from being locked up in abusive, prison-like conditions. But the Trump administration is trying to gut these rules and remove critical protections for children. Their goal is to jail immigrant children and families indefinitely and roll back already minimal standards for their treatment.
Now is your chance to stand up for immigrant children’s safety. Submit a comment from your perspective about why you oppose the Trump administration’s new regulations to indefinitely detain children, lower standards of care in immigration jails, and remove legal protections from minors seeking safety in the U.S.
TAKE ACTION: Leave a comment to stop the Trump administration from jailing children indefinitely. Comments only count if they are unique, so remember to modify your comment to represent your perspective before submitting.
