Find 1,500 Migrant Children Lost by the Federal Government

Target: Donald Trump, President of the United States

Goal: Find and ensure the safety of almost 1500 migrant children that the federal government lost track of.

Officials from the Department of Health and Human Services has revealed that they have lost track of 1,475 children that were placed with sponsors in the United States. The Trump administration now plans to separate more children from their families when they enter the U.S. illegally. Being that they lost so many children already, there is a high chance they are going to lose more.

These children are at risk of becoming victims of human trafficking, sexual assault, abuse, or child labor. Many of these children came from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala. They were leaving behind a life of gang violence, abuse, and drug cartels. Instead of coming to a safe space, they were ripped away from their families and now no one knows where they are. Demand that the federal government is held responsible for losing these young children.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Trump,

Federal agencies have lost nearly 1,500 children. These children came to the United States hoping to find a better life than the one they left behind, instead they were ripped away from their families and lost. The government left these children with sponsors that did not undergo background checks and they endangered the lives of these children.

These kids deserved to be protected and instead they were sent to unsafe places without any regard for their well-being. Many of these children could become a victim of human trafficking, sexual and physical abuse, or forced into child labor. Regardless of their immigration status they deserved to be safe and the government did not provide this protection. The government needs to take responsibility for these children. We demand that the children are found, and Department of Health and Human Services are punished for losing track of these children in the first place.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
