Letter from Children and Youth Advocates Urging Congress to Include Immigrant Families in Future COVID-19 Relief Package

This letter was sent to Congress by nearly 200 national, state, and local organizations that serve, represent, or advocate on behalf of children and youth, including the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), the American Academy of Pediatrics, Children’s Defense Fund, First Focus on Children, The Children’s Partnership, MomsRising, the National Education Association, and UnidosUS. The letter urges Congress to include immigrant families and children in the next COVID-19 relief package to ensure that millions of children in mixed-status immigrant families are able to benefit from critical health and economic assistance.
