AILA: Take Action to Protect Due Process Rights of Unaccompanied Children

Rating: 4 votes, 5.00 average.
From AILA InfoNet Doc. No. 13070945 (posted Jul. 16, 2014):

Take Action to Protect Due Process Rights of Unaccompanied Children

Right now, Congress is debating the President’s emergency supplemental funding request to address the humanitarian crisis involving migrant children at the southern border of the United States. AILA is concerned that the process to pass this supplemental funding, which is sorely needed, will include unacceptable proposals to weaken the protections of the TVPRA for these Central American children. These proposals trade the safety of children for expediency. It would be a "round-‘em up and ship-‘em back" approach, as Senator Harkin said in opposition to such an approach.


Please take 3 minutes today to call your Senators
and ask them to protect these children. Subjecting Central American children to the failed Mexican screening process would be a retreat from America's commitment as a humanitarian leader and undermine our American values of putting children first and protecting them from harm.


Congressional Switchboard: 202.224.3121

Sample Script:
Hi, my name is _________ from [City, State]. I am calling to urge Senator ________ to strongly oppose any rollbacks to protections for Central American unaccompanied children as Congress considers the President’s supplemental funding request.


  • The protections included in the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, which passed with bipartisan support and was signed by President Bush, ensures the physical safety of unaccompanied children and the proper screening for humanitarian protection and must not be weakened.
  • Unaccompanied children fleeing violence should not be returned to unsafe situations, but must be protected and cared for humanely, while assured due process.
  • As your constituent, I expect you to stand firm against any proposal that would sacrifice a child's safety for expediency.
  • The U.S. must instead find ways to reduce the violence these children face in their home countries and ensure that children who arrive to the U.S. have access to the legal counsel and services they need.

    you forgot to add: "all AILA members will (a) process these brats' paperwork for free and (b) agree to each take in 5 children (5 x 11,000 = 55,000) into their own homes, and support them with all the money they have 'earned' selling out America'...sorry AILA, but you don't get to decide how to spend my tax dollars...if you are really so interested in the welfare of these illegal brats, then go to the border and take a few into your own household...but of course,, all of you lack the courage and character to do so...you just want more clients to pay you obscene sums of money to fill out papers on their behalf...what charlatans...

    Nothing wrong with a hate rant or two here and there, is there, Someone12? As long as it helps in getting whatever is bothering you off your back and out of your system.

    so let's see...ole Matt apparently believes that the US should start policing Central America...why? Other countries' domestic problems are not my responsibility nor that of any American citizen...if you or Matt are so deeply concerned, why haven't you two set up shop in Honduras or some other cess pool of a country in that direction? remind us all again...why haven't you and Matt and the other thiev....er, 'attorneys of AILA traveled to some border towns and taken in some of these brats? You and Matt and other AILA clowns believe, for some reason, that the US taxpayers should shell out for anyone who crosses our borders, with or without permission....once again, why? Where is it written anywhere that the US of A owes a standard of living to everyone on the planet, and that anyone who manages to cross our borders should be given any number of benefits, thus evading all of our current visa laws? Where? I have an idea....somewhere up the behinds of immigration attorneys.
