Opposing the Southwest Border Act of 2014Children of Immigrants
On July 30th, the First Focus Campaign for Children sent this letter to the U.S. House of Representatives opposing the Secure the South West Border Act (H.R. 5230) to address the influx of Unaccompanied Children entering the United States. The bill puts vulnerable children seeking safety in our country in harm’s way by rolling back critical trafficking protections, placing children into expedited removal proceedings, keeping children in inappropriate detention settings longer than necessary, and restricting their access to legal counsel.
