Save the Children U.S. Border Crisis Update

All children deserve to be protected from harm. The health of our children is only possible when each and every one is protected. And yet, far too many children and families have had their rights violated while seeking asylum in the United States. 

Families and unaccompanied children crossing the border must be protected and processed safely in the United States. Being forced to remain in camps and shelters in Mexico puts already vulnerable families at even greater risk.

As children’s rights continue to be violated at the border, Save the Children cannot and will not remain silent.

Influx facilities used to house migrant children upon their arrival to the U.S. are no places for a child. Some facilities that hold unaccompanied children are overcrowded and may lack access to adequate hygiene, legal and health services, putting children at risk of harm.

Save the Children is helping meet the urgent needs of children and families by providing cash and critical supplies to a network of more than 35 shelters and social service agencies, and we are advocating for children’s rights, humane treatment and care.  

Save the Children does not choose sides – we choose children and will always work to uphold and protect their rights in any crisis or circumstance.

Thank you for your support that is making our work at the border possible.
