APSAC files a brief speaking up for refugee children in the travel ban litigation

What impact does the "temporary" ban on refugees in President Trump's Executive Order 13,780 have on children?

Realizing that none of the many amici in the federal case were speaking for children, the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children, represented by Persyn Law & Policy and Keith Bradley, filed an amicus brief in the Fourth and Ninth Circuits to inform the justices on the question.

These children are in grave danger, and the United States must shoulder its historical responsibility to aid them together with the global community. Syrian children, for example, are trapped in mass migration triggered by the worst humanitarian crisis since WWII.

Will we turn our backs and shut our eyes? Not if APSAC has anything to say about it.

Stay tuned for more as the cases go to oral argument on May 8 and 15.
