THE STORY:

Migrant Women and Children
Many women who come to the United States seeking asylum have suffered great harm. They flee their countries of origin because they’ve been persecuted on account of their race, religion or political orientation. They are often survivors of domestic violence, rape and trafficking. These women come to the U.S. seeking protection, but upon arrival, are held in detention facilities where they are subjected to additional neglect and abuse.

Unaccompanied children come to the U.S. from around the world, majority of whom are boys between the ages of 15 and 17. Many of these children are fleeing war, violence, abuse or natural disaster. They undertake difficult journeys, often across numerous international borders, and often alone. An increasing number of these children become victims of traffickers and smugglers. All of these children, but especially adolescent girls, are highly susceptible to rape and assault along the way.
These women and children are some of the most vulnerable migrants who cross our borders, and are in need of special protections appropriate for their situation.
