Civil Rights Groups Appeal for International Help in Ending Separation of Immigrant Families

The coalition—made up of the Texas Civil Rights ProjectWomen’s Refugee Commission, the University of Texas School of Law, and the McAllen, Texas-based Garcia and Garcia law firm—represents five parents and their children. They urge the IACHR to adopt “precautionary measures,” a mechanism designed to secure a quick action by the international body, to stop the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
