Young Center Urges Obama to End Deportation of Children

On January 21st, the Young Center and 50 other children’s advocacy organizations sent a letter to President Obama asking him to protect the best interests of immigrant children and end the deportation of families and children. With our colleagues, we urged the Administration to ensure children and families seeking refuge receive protection, and instead focus on appropriate screening, due process, access to legal counsel and child advocates.
