Our Position: Trump’s Zero Tolerance Policy
Family for Every Child opposes the recent inhumane treatment of children and families by the United States Government at the US-Mexico border. We consider the forced separation of these children from their families to be both unethical and in conflict with international human rights instruments including the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children. We share the sentiments of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in describing this separation of children from their families as ‘unconscionable’ and an ‘abuse on children’.
