Report Launch and Media Call: How Immigration Enforcement Practices in Southern Mexico Limit Migrant Children's Access to International Protection

April 6, 2015 —


The Georgetown Law Human Rights Institute Fact-Finding Project presents a new report regarding the protection of the human rights of Central American migrant children and their access to international protection in southern Mexico. These findings come at a time when the United States has contributed resources to the fortification of Mexico’s southern border and show that increased apprehension and deportation of children at Mexico’s southern border may come at a significant cost to children’s rights. The report includes recommendations to the United States government and the Mexican government.
