Tell Congress: Create a Children’s Court

Unaccompanied children have traveled hundreds or even thousands of miles to the United States, often completely on their own, to escape extreme violence, sexual abuse, human trafficking, and other dangers. 

Once they have reached the United States, these children must navigate the complex U.S. immigration system, including an immigration court system that was designed for adults.  

The Immigration Court Efficiency and Children’s Court Act of 2023 is commonsense, bipartisan and bicameral legislation that would help strengthen due process for unaccompanied children and alleviate the immigration court backlog. Please, join KIND today and urge your members of Congress to pass this groundbreaking bill.
