Today, February 15, 2019, the President declared an utterly unnecessary and anti-child “national emergency” on our southern border.

Yesterday, a federal watchdog agency released a report confirming what Young Center Child Advocates have reported for the last 18 months.
Last month, the Young Center joined more than 216,000 organizations and individuals to oppose a new government effort to limit children’s access to essential government programs.
The Young Center mourns the death of seven-year-old Jackeline Amei Rosmary Caal Maquin, who came to the U.S. from Guatemala with her father. She died of septic shock, fever and dehydration in the custody of US Customs and Border Patrol. We are heartbroken to know that yet another child died an utterly preventable death in our country.
