The Center for the Human Rights of Children, in collaboration with Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) and the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights (“Young Center”) submits this input in response to the call for submissions made by the Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants to inform the forthcoming report to the 50th session of the Human Rights Council regarding the United States’ current border management policies that aim to prevent migration atthe southern border. This input will focus on United States’ push back methods, namely the recently reimplemented Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) otherwise known as “Remain in Mexico” and continuing Title 42 expulsions. This input calls attention to the ways in which the USG continues to ignore the unique vulnerabilities of migrant children to achieve unlawful policy goals. As a result of these policies, migrant children continue to experience harm to their physical, mental, emotional, and developmental well-being.
