📣 Critical update in our family separation litigation:

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.
Let’s be clear: These children were separated from their parents at least 10 months ago — before June 26, 2018.

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.
The government swiftly gathered resources to tear families apart. It MUST do the same to fix the damage.

We believe this work can be done in three months and we’re asking the judge to order the government to do so.
We believe, contrary to the government's claims, at least a partial list of separated children very likely exists or could be generated with data that CBP has at its disposal.

Here’s the bottom line: The government continues to refuse to prioritize child welfare.
The administration’s plan lacks the urgency warranted where the lives of young children are at stake.

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.
