We need to focus on making sure that kids can get placed with sponsors and get out of custody.”

    Migrant Children Describe Tent City As ‘Punishment,’ Experts Say

    Pin It

    Leah Chavla, a human rights lawyer at the Women’s Refugee Commission who recently returned from touring the tent city, thinks kids will spend longer periods in this facility as the government continues to target the sponsors. “It’s a vicious cycle,” she said. “It’s something to be concerned about.” 

    She points out that since the tent city is considered an emergency facility, it’s not held to the same child welfare standards as the government-run shelters and groups homes for migrant children.

    Chavla says kids don’t go to school at the Tornillo facility and have less access to legal and mental health services than they would have in regular shelters. “At regular facilities, there are more check-ins with personnel. At big institutions [like this], kids fall through the cracks, because there’s not enough time or capacity to see all those kids on a regular basis.”

    The platform was created as part of the Women's Participation project, which IOM runs together with the Women's Refugee Commission (WRC). The project began in 2015. It analyzed the way in which men, women and several groups at risk, including adolescent girls, women and the disabled participate in the daily life and in decision-making processes in the camps. Based on that analysis, strategies to improve the situation for women and girls were developed.

    Most of the kids being moved to the tent city are ages 13-17 and are being sent there because they’re close to being released to a sponsor. That means they will spend less time at the temporary facility than a child recently apprehended at the border. Leah Chavla, a lawyer with the Women’s Refugee Commission, disagrees that the move won’t have lasting effects. “Obviously we have concerns about kids falling through the cracks, not getting sufficient attention if they need attention, not getting the emotional or mental health care that they need.”
