Use DNA to reunite immigrants detainees with their children

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


The Problem

  • Children in detention centers are separated from their parents; many parents have no way of identifying their kids (lack of photos)
  • Many of the children are not able to identify their parents (very young)
  • Prevent human trafficking
  • We do not have an exact account of “unpaired” children

Solution
Provide mouth-swab DNA testing for detainees. This will establish clear relationship between adult detainees and their children. In the event that relatives take charge of the children, the mouth-swab DNA can establish an familial relationship and deter human traffickers. This program will utilize existing commercial DNA testing companies.


Outcome
Parents will know where their children are and can be assured that they will be reunited


Signing this petition will help our group to convince a DNA testing company to provide services at a minimum cost and persuade elected officials to allow volunteers to implement the program at detention centers.
