Children don't belong in cages

type: Petition
by: Murat Suner

The Trump administration is holding on to its inhumane policy to indefinitely imprison immigrant families and children in cages.

If this ruthless practice of deterrence is successful, "we’re going to see babies celebrating birthday after birthday from behind a chain link fence – all because their families tried to escape unspeakable violence in their home countries" argues Kids in Need of Defense. 

Join Kids in Need of Defense's campaign on to end long-term, indefinite detention of immigrant children.
