The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) and The Children’s Village present chapter five, of Where We Stand: A 20-Year Retrospective of the Unaccompanied Children’s Program in the United States. 

The retrospective will review the Unaccompanied Children’s Program from the passage of the Homeland Security Act (HSA) of 2002 until today. It assesses 20 years of legislation, policies, litigation, and, most importantly, the U.S. federal government’s care of unaccompanied migrating children, with a view toward the next steps and improvements for the years ahead. The fifth chapter examines the Haiti earthquake in 2010 and the processing of Haitian children as unaccompanied children.
