    DeLauro leads probe of Trump administration’s treatment of detained migrant youth

    Pin It

    Michelle Brané, of the Women’s Refugee Commission, and others, did accept the committee’s invitation to testify.

    She said several Trump administration policies have led to longer stays in custody and lack of appropriate facilities to house the migrant children, including the policy of separating children from their parents at the border. Children are usually released to family members but many of these people are being deported, Brané said, under the administration’s more aggressive deportation policies.

    “Especially because of the way that the U.S. government has been metering ports of entry,” Brané said, referring to a policy that only allows a few asylum seekers entry into the country at a time, “people are arriving in more and more precarious health. Especially for a pregnant woman, it’s not surprising that she arrived in distress.”

    "We don't know exactly how many children were separated and there's no question (the government's) complete lack of tracking makes it complicated and is outrageous, irresponsible, and frankly, criminally negligent," said Michelle Brané, director of migrant rights at the Women's Refugee Commission and part of the steering committee that helped find families covered by Sabraw's order.

    Where Do We Go From Here? Moving Forward with the Gender Equality Objective of the Call to Action Road Map

    Gender-based violence is deeply rooted in gender inequality and women’s disempowerment. GBV is one of the primary obstacles to achieving gender equality, and gender inequality perpetuates norms that promote GBV. In order to effect change on GBV, gender equality programming must be an integral part of the work.

    The Women's Refugee Commission has issued a brief that focuses on the Call to Action on Protection from Gender-based Violence in Emergencies, and how it addresses the linkages between gender inequality and gender-based violence (GBV).

    “It may look like it’s working in the short term,” said [Michelle] Brané [the director of migrant rights and justice at the Women’s Refugee Commission], “but I don’t think it’s a long-term solution. It’s driving people further into the shadows and that’s exactly the opposite of what we want.”

    “The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s own Office of Inspector General (OIG) has issued multiple reports on ICE’s problematic detention practices and, moreover, the agency’s poor inspection and oversight processes," Katharina Obser, senior policy adviser for the Migrant Rights and Justice program at the Women’s Refugee Commission, said in a statement. “This is a system that needs an overhaul, not expansion.”

    Refugee camps around the world often fail to provide safe and secure infrastructure that allows women and girls to use the restroom safely and with dignity. In particular, there is limited access to sanitation facilities and those that exist are often mixed sex, public, and without locks or well-lit paths. Of the 42 million people who have had to flee their homes due to war, 80 percent are women and children, and at least 10 million are estimated to be girls, according to a report by the Women’s Refugee Commission.
