United States 🇺🇸.

✅ 20 US States want to oppose the indefinite detention of Migrant Children required by the US Federal Administration.

20 US states want to oppose unrestricted detention required by the US  Homeland Security Department.

This US Department wants to end a 1997 Court Judgment, called „FLORES,“ requiring federal authorities not to detain children over 20 days. The actual US Administration believes that the „FLORES“ Case Law is out of date in the current migratory context, and hopes that this 20-day limit will be lifted in the next two months.

The 20 states objected to the initiative want to „protect children from the irreparable harm caused by illegal and unnecessary detention,“ said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. Human Rights Organizations also want to take the Case to Court.

✅ A Democratic State can not resolve to throw innocent children in jail and to sacrify their childhood. Migrant Children can not be a „political weapon“ to win elections.

Isolated foreign minor children : bone tests are reliable only when these children are far from their majority.

▶ Try to objectify the chronological age of an isolated minor child, by using a scientific criterion or a statistical criterion based on different populations from North America or from Europe, and without taking into account the acceleration of the process maturation by dangerous and traumatic journeys, is a criterion which is not reliable.

▶ Some young persons who have had a bone test have been given a broad scale of age, such as „between 18 and 25 years of age“ : this approximation is not reliable.

1/ The painful journey of pregnant homeless women in the street.

▶ „The 115 for cradle?“ With this question, the Abbé-Pierre Foundation warns the public authorities and denounces, in its 21st Report devoted to poor housing in France, the situation of many pregnant and precarious women in France.

„We regret the lack of follow-up upstream of the pregnancy and a lack of suitable housing for leaving the maternity ward“, summarizes Manuel Domergue, director of studies at the Abbé-Pierre Foundation.

▶ In France, 40 % of homeless persons (in accommodation, makeshift shelters, hotels, etc.) are women. 5 % are totally homeless, sleeping rough in the street.

2/ The French Maternity Hospitals are confronted „more and more regularly to the cases of mothers in precarious situation who give birth and who have neither a roof, nor a shelter, at the exit of the maternity“, alert the Hospitals of Paris.

▶ Out of 12 Maternities, 11 Maternities are located in Ile-de-France.

▶ In Ile-de-France, at least 2,400 women found themselves in this situation in 2017. This figure is up from previous years (2,000 in 2016) and these are only partial estimates, says the Regional Health Agency.

▶ The mothers of these children and these children who are born need emergency housing for their physical, mental and psychological health.

12 June 2018. World Day Against Child Labor.

World Day Against Child Labor.

  • Worldwide 218 million children between 5 and 17 years are in employment.
    Among them, 152 million are victims of child labour; almost half of them, 73 million, work in hazardous child labour.
  • In absolute terms, almost half of child labour (72.1 million) is to be found in Africa; 62.1 million in the Asia and the Pacific; 10.7 million in the Americas; 1.2 million in the Arab States and 5.5 million in Europe and Central Asia.
  • In terms of prevalence, 1 in 5 children in Africa (19.6 %) are in child labour, whilst prevalence in other regions is between 3 % and 7 %: 2.9 % in the Arab States (1 in 35 children); 4.1 % in Europe and Central Asia (1 in 25); 5.3 % in the Americas (1 in 19) and 7.4 % in Asia and the Pacific region (1 in 14).
  • Almost half of all 152 million children victims of child labour are aged 5-11 years.
    42 million (28 %) are 12-14 years old; and 37 million (24 %) are 15-17 years old.
  • Hazardous child labour is most prevalent among the 15-17 years old. Nevertheless up to a fourth of all hazardous child labour (19 million) is done by children less than 12 years old.
  • Among 152 million children in child labour, 88 million are boys and 64 million are girls.
  • 58 % of all children in child labour and 62 % of all children in hazardous work are boys. Boys appear to face a greater risk of child labour than girls, but this may also be a reflection of an under-reporting of girls’ work, particularly in domestic child labour.
  • Child labour is concentrated primarily in agriculture (71 %), which includes fishing, forestry, livestock herding and aquaculture, and comprises both subsistence and commercial farming; 17 % in Services; and 12 % in the Industrial sector, including mining.
