Children in immigrant families make up one-quarter of all children in the United States and represent the fastest growing segment of the country’s increasingly diverse child population. Yet immigrant children and families are more likely to be low income and face systemic barriers to health and nutrition supports. Harsh immigration enforcement policies also threaten the safety and wellbeing of the millions of children in mixed-status families. CLASP advocates for federal and state policy reforms to promote health, economic security, and overall success for immigrant children, youth, and families.
