Contacting ORR and Directors of ORR funded agencies
As our country scrambles to respond to the threat of the coronavirus, we risk forgetting the most vulnerable among us. Even as each of us struggles to protect ourselves and our loved ones, we also have a collective spiritual calling to extend our compassion beyond our immediate orbits and remember the unaccompanied children, those imprisoned minors cruelly separated from their immigrant parents who remain in the custody of our ORR-funded facilities. These young people are now forced to confront this pandemic in captivity, without their families, separated from their loved ones who desperately wish to be reunited with them. As these children remain confined behind these centers’ walls, we risk exposing them to rampant illness and suffering, leaving them to face both in terrifying isolation. We are contacting the Directors who oversee the agencies that operate these centers to hold them accountable for the children in their care.

Hello, my name is [First and Last name] and I am a member of New Sanctuary Coalition.

We are concerned about the unaccompanied immigrant children in ORR care. Our local, State and Federal officials are warning us about the risks from this pandemic COVID 19 and that we should not congregate. We want to know what you are doing to guarantee their health, safety, and well-being.

If you get through to someone we make the same statement above but ask a few questions.

How have you responded to the directive by California Central Court District Judge, Dolly M. Gee, agencies operating migrant children detention facilities must by April 6 provide an accounting of their efforts to release those in custody to suitable sponsors, most often family members?
What precautions are agencies taking for the children?
What precautions are agencies taking for the staff. Are they coming in and out everyday putting the children at greater risk?
Are the children given cleaning materials and disinfectant to be protected?
Are the children being given gloves and masks?
How is food handled - are the food preparers given gloves and masks?
Do you have Covid-19 tests and if there is an infection what are the precautions?
If not you, then who is responsible for making these decisions?
We are seeing more and more children and staff in ORR funded facilities testing positive for Covid-19.
How are you taking care of their health and well-being?
When you reunite those who have known sponsors and family members waiting for them? If not, why won't you Free The Children?
