Legislation addresses problems exposed by 2006 Worthington raid and increased ICE arrests
The Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota is proud to announce its support for the Humane Enforcement and Legal Protections (HELP) for Separated Children Act introduced last week by U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-MN) and others. The bill will help ensure that children remain safe, informed, and their interests accounted for during Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids and all enforcement actions.
The legislation directly addresses problems exposed in the aftermath of the 2006 raid at Swift & Company meatpacking plant in Worthington, MN, after which numerous children were without their parents and had no way to find them.
