Petitioning United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Navanethem Pillay

Sign Petition - Reunite Tens of Thousands of American Children Taken From Their Deported Parents

In 2011, over 46,000 immigrant mothers and fathers of at least one United States citizen child were part of massive deportations in the U.S. Many of these children (unable to be claimed by their parents while held in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention centers) were put into foster care systems and scattered throughout the United States - as abandoned and neglected.

Reunite Tens of Thousands of American Children Taken From Their Deported Parents

In 2011, over 46,000 immigrant mothers and fathers of at least one United States citizen child were part of massive deportations in the U.S. Many of these children (unable to be claimed by their parents while held in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention centers) were put into foster care systems and scattered throughout the United States - as abandoned and neglected.

Please issue a United Nations Writ of Habeas Corpus, asking that the President of the United States provide to the UN Human Rights Council a complete and detailed list of these missing children and their locations.

We call on the UN Human Rights Council to help start the family reunification process.

High Commissioner, please help put an end to the practice of shattering undocumented immigrant families in the United States. No one has the right to separate a child from the parent they love. Nobody!
