The United States is tearing immigrant children and parents apart.

This has the full support of the Trump administration. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2018/05/11/john-kelly-splitting-migrant-families-laws-trump/602982002/

The children are being held at Customs and Border Protection facilities in horrific conditions.

There have been allegations of abuse and torture of immigrant children at holding facilities as reported by the ACLU

We are therefore requesting the United Nations Human Rights Council investigate how the Trump administration and the Customs and Border Patrol agency, along with ICE, are holding and facilitating immigrant children. 

The need for such an investigation is urgent in light of the report that 1,500 immigrant children can no longer be accounted for.

It is inscribed on the Statue of Liberty: " Give me your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free." These immigrant children, along with their parents, yearn to breathe free, and should never be separated by a system that has shown little regard for their freedoms, their family bonds, and their human dignity.
