In an effort led by KIND, CLINC and 120 organizations called upon DHS to cease expulsions of unaccompanied children and asylum seekers at the U.S. southern border; stop deportations of unaccompanied children living in the U.S. interior without required court proceedings; release detained families together; and to never again pursue family separation. Under cover of the COVID-19 pandemic, DHS has redoubled its efforts to undo legal protections that keep children and families safe. The organizations urge DHS to end these destructive policies immediately.
