FEINSTEIN TO INTRODUCE UNACCOMPANIED MINORS AMENDMENT

Rate this Entry

Senator Feinstein (D-CA) has been promoting legislation to offer special protections to unaccompanied children who are in immigration proceedings in the US. The bill has passed the Senate twice before so perhaps this is the year the bill finally becomes a law. According to Feinstein's folks:


Enactment of S. 844 would ensure that these children are
treated humanely while in federal custody, provide for a more orderly and
expeditious repatriation of children to their country of nationality or
habitual residence when no relief is available and their repatriation is
appropriate, and help those who are entitled to relief obtain such relief. In
addition, S. 844 would facilitate legal representation of such children in
their immigration proceedings, at no expense to the government, thereby helping
expedite the resolution of their immigration status. The measure also would give ORR the
discretion to appoint child advocates for children to ensure that their
interests are properly considered as they navigate our country's complex
immigration system and make modest, yet important, reforms in the Special
Immigrant Juvenile provisions of the law.

    There's some deivls in thsoe details, eh? Nevetheless, Feinstein has valuable experience as a mayor, and can probably at least appreciate them, unlike a number of her colleagues.
