The Humane Enforcement and Legal Protections (HELP) for Separated Children Act (S. 1399), introduced by Senator Al Franken (D-MN), would implement critically needed reforms to protect children, families and communities impacted by immigration enforcement. The companion bill in the House of Representatives, also known as the HELP Separated Children Act (H.R. 2607), was introduced by Representative Lynn Woolsey (D-CA). The bill was re-introduced in July 2011.
