• Description

Appleseed recommends a number of concrete steps the United States should take to improve how it treats unaccompanied Mexican minors at the border, and to come into compliance with the letter and spirit of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection and Reauthorization Act of 2008 (the TVPRA). We also offer recommendations to the Mexican government designed to enhance its ability to deal with the root causes of underage migration, and to both governments to improve the repatriation process along their lengthy shared border.
