Hundreds of children — even babies — have been reportedly held in U.S. Border Patrol facilities without a chance to bathe, brush their teeth or change their clothes for weeks. There are reports of extreme cold and inadequate food, sanitation and medical care. Enough is enough: it is an outrage that children are being detained, especially in these appalling conditions. The U.S. government is defying international law while heartlessly putting infants and children in harm’s way. We cannot stand by idly and ignore this crisis. Demand that your Member of Congress launch an investigation into the unsafe conditions of child detention facilities by taking action now!
