Children detained indefinitely in overcrowded detention facilities. Children caring for babies. Lack of access to food, clean water, and sanitation. Babies in soiled clothing. Refused medical care.
Lawyer Moms of America refused to watch while the government tore children from their parents' arms. We won’t sit back while children are detained indefinitely in unsafe, unsanitary conditions. It’s time to let our lawmakers know that we haven’t looked away. Help us demand the compassionate care of migrant children and codification of the American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations for Immigrant Children in Detention.

Demand the compassionate treatment of migrant children (and all migrants) in U.S. government custody. Immigration policy may be complicated, but basic humanity is not.
