Urgent Action Update: 28 Children at Risk of Imminent Deportation (USA: UA 116.20)December 3, 2020
Twenty-eight children and their families, held indefinitely in immigration detention in Texas and Pennsylvania, are facing imminent deportation. Many have been detained for nearly a year and a half. None of these families have been allowed to request asylum in accordance with US and international law, and they would be sent back to danger if they are returned to their countries of origin. Authorities must stop these deportations and ensure these families their right to seek asylum.
