Protecting Asylum-Seekers Protects Children & Families
The Children’s Partnership (TCP) is relieved that the U.S. Supreme Court this morning ruled that Pres. Joe Biden can end the Remain in Mexico program, which had required asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims for protection are being processed. Policies that block access to asylum, like Remain in Mexico, are harmful and inhumane, resulting in families, children and adults being forced to take dangerous routes and put their lives at risk, as we have seen with the recent tragedy of the loss of over 50 lives in San Antonio. We must continue to move away from anti-asylum policies and build a welcoming and safe system for people seeking a better life for themselves and their families.

TCP envisions a California where all children—regardless of their race, ethnicity or place of birth—have the resources and opportunities they need to grow up healthy and thrive, and its mission is to advance this vision of child health equity through research, policy and community engagement.
