Save the Children Calls Upon Biden Administration to Immediately End Deportation Flights to Haiti and Treat Asylum-Seeking Children and Families Legally, with Dignity and Respect

Save the Children is deeply disappointed by the Biden administration’s response to the recent influx of Haitian asylum-seekers, particularly the decision to employ Title 42 to deport thousands of Haitian asylum-seekers – many of whom are families and children – despite the worsening humanitarian crisis in Haiti. Not only are Haitian asylum-seeking families and children being rapidly expelled on daily deportation flights, but there have been multiple reports of asylum-seekers being treated inhumanely upon their arrival into the U.S.

After Decades of Underinvestment, Save the Children Commends Historic Early Education and Child Nutrition Funding in Draft Version of Build Back Better Act

“We’re thrilled with the prioritization of kids and families in the current draft of the Build Back Better Act. The impact this once-in-a-generation opportunity would have on children and families cannot be overstated. Millions more children would have access to high quality early childhood education and go to bed nourished. Millions more parents – particularly women – could enter or re-enter the workforce. And, countless immigrant families wouldn’t face potential deportation and separation from their American children,” said Janti Soeripto, Save the Children President and CEO and Save the Children Action Network Board Chair. “It’s imperative that our legislators take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity and ensure the current provisions for kids and families remain in the final package that gets signed into law. Only then can we begin to build back better and stronger than ever.”

Letter: Strengthen Education For Young Children

There is so much in the news today screaming out for our attention that it’s easy to overlook a program known as the Build Back Better Plan originally introduced by President Joe Biden as the “American Families Plan.” While this plan may seem less dramatic than other news stories it has important implications for the long-term health of our country and its families, parents and children.

Letter: Make WIC work better for moms

In the U.S., many of our most vulnerable depend on WIC, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children. While WIC is essential to those who use it, only about half of those eligible for it benefit because it requires in-person visits to sign-up locations, doesn’t allow for online shopping or delivery, and ends before many children start kindergarten and become eligible for school meal programs.

Let’s celebrate grandparents and do more for children

In the United States, grandparents care for one in four children under the age of five. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, which shuttered — perhaps permanently — countless child care centers, we know this number has grown. Many parents are left with no other option than to ask their own parents for help.

We care for child care

Many families in the U.S. live in child care deserts -- areas where it is nearly impossible to access quality care for their children. We must urge Congress to fix this and #Care4ChildCare.
