Stand for Welcome with Migrants and Refugees
Over the last three years the number of young people running from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador to the United States has been rising. The current estimates are that there could be as many as 80,000 kids. Many are teens but some are younger than ten. And legislative and programmatic efforts to address the influx of unaccompanied young adults crossing the border UACs are stalled in budget issues and a conflation of enforcement issues.
We’re asking for your support of LIRS so that we can keep all of our good work going. Work that includes supporting children arriving alone to the US, advocacy for all immigrants and our historical commitment to supporting refugees new to the United States
