it is more important than ever to #DefendFlores.
For more than 20 years, the Flores Agreement has protected the human rights of minors in detention. The Flores Agreement guarantees rights to shelter, food, healthcare, and access to legal counsel. It's crucial that we act now, as the Trump Administration:
builds tent cities to hold children in detention;
threatens once to again separate families;
dehumanizes thousands of refugees as they seek safety from life-threatening situations
Submit your public comment by November 6th. Time is running out for these children and they need us to act.
Without Flores, these children who have already been traumatized by the situations they are fleeing, will have their basic human rights stripped away. The government will be permitted to indefinitely detain immigrant children.
