Immediate Priorities for the Protection of Immigrant Children


The Biden administration must quickly outline its commitment to protecting the safety and well-being of immigrant children. As part of a coalition of organizations dedicated to children’s rights, safety, health, and development, the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) recommends immediate action on the issues outlined in this document. We also call on the Biden administration to mandate that government actors consider the best interests of the child—including their expressed wishes, safety, family integrity, liberty, development, and identity—and support legislation to create such a mandate in federal law.
