Letter: In Support of the Humanitarian Standards for Individuals in Customs and Border Patrol Custody Act
First Focus Campaign for Children wrote a letter in support of H.R. 3239, the "Save Kids Act," by Representative Raul Ruiz.
On behalf of First Focus Campaign for Children, a bipartisan children’s advocacy organization dedicated to making children and families the priority in federal policy and budget decisions, we are writing to express our thanks for introducing the Humanitarian Standards for Individuals in Customs and Border Protection Custody Act.
Every child has the right to have their basic needs met and to be treated with humanity, but unfortunately the current state of the US border does not guarantee this. In the last year, six migrant children have tragically died in U.S. custody.
