Today we filed our response to the Trump administration's proposal that allows it up to 2 YEARS just to identify the potentially thousands more children it separated from their parents.
Everything about its plan is flawed.
The government's suggestion that these families can afford to wait years to be reunited shows a callous disregard for their wellbeing and should be rejected.
We believe this work can be done in three months and we’re asking the judge to order the government to do so.
Here’s the bottom line: The government continues to refuse to prioritize child welfare.
Identifying all of the victims of the government’s separation policy is the first step to ensuring that no child is permanently orphaned.
It must be done sooner than two years.
