The Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law has worked on behalf of unaccompanied immigrant and refugee minors for many years. The Center has designated unaccompanied immigrant and refugee minors as particularly vulnerable immigrants meriting special solicitude in U.S. immigration law, as well as treatment appropriate to their age and experience in encounters with federal law enforcement agencies and state child welfare entities.

Among other work, the Center serves as lead counsel in two major class action settlements requiring improved treatment for immigrant and refugee children: Flores, et al., v. Napolitano, et al., No. CV 85-4544  and Perez-Olano, et al., v. Holder, et al., No. CV 05-3604 (C.D. Cal.). This site collects materials and information useful to advocates for unaccompanied immigrant and refugee minors.

ABOUT


The Immigrant Children Project seeks to address both policy issues relating to the treatment of unaccompanied migrant children, as well as mechanisms for the delivery of direct non-governmental community-based services to such children.

Initially the focus of this work is on migrant children who have left their countries in order to enter the United States, or who have already entered the United States. As additional information is gathered from institutions and advocates outside of the United States working on behalf of unaccompanied migrant children, the scope of the project may expand to include issues in other countries, particularly in Central and South America.
