The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights pays tribute to the children we serve by naming the organization after one of our first clients, Young Zheng, a young man from China who was smuggled by ruthless traffickers at the age of 14, and expected to work off a debt of $60,000. In fear for his life, Young endured more than two years of detention and legal battles to remain in the U.S. All the while, his Child Advocate stood by him, advocated for his release and against deportation. Young Zheng has finished college, was granted citizenship, and has been accepted in the biotechnology program at Texas A&M University. He has graciously lent his name to this organization.
