Justice for sexually abused immigrant children

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500,000!

In the month of February, 2019 the Justice Department revealed that the federal government has received more than 4,500 complaints in the past four years concerning the sexual abuse of immigrant children. These children were being held at government-funded detention facilities.  

According to the New York Times, “detailed allegations that adult staff members had harassed and assaulted children, including fondling and kissing minors, watching them as they showered, and raping them. They also included cases of suspected abuse of children by other minors.”

The staff members responsible will be brought to justice. Our mission is to bring this to the attention of the White House and the media so that the United States government will make reforms to avoid and halt further abuse of immigrant children.
