Ask Congress to continue protections for immigrant children

The Obama administration has asked Congress to eliminate vital protections for immigrant children arriving in the United States without their parents—allowing children to be deported without a hearing, without access to an attorney, and without regard to their best interests as children.

This response needs to be stopped. Contact your representatives today—ask them to protect, not punish, immigrant children.
