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 The actual US Administration believes that the “FLORES” Case Law is out of date in the current migratory context, and hopes that this 20-day limit will be lifted in the next two months.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.

Libya: Migrants have always been victims of rape in Libya both in official detention centers and in clandestine centers.

Migrants have always been victims of rape in Libya in both official and clandestine detention centers. What has changed today is that we know it, whereas five years ago, public opinion was not ready to hear stories of rape. She did not understand the degree of violence that migrants experienced in Libyan detention centers.

The Libyan territory is shared by hundreds of militias who are fighting a war for parts of territory but also for the management of migration channels. All militias have clandestine detention centers in which armed men detain and abuse migrants, including sexual violence.

Although it is difficult to talk about it, it is important for migrants to address the issue of rape when they are interviewed for their asylum application, especially if there have been reoccurrences. To best document what happened to a person in Libya, one must try to find out where the person was detained, by whom (which militia) and for how long.

Who are the Refugees ? 

The rights of third-country nationals entering or staying in the European Union are often not respected.

This is sometimes because of :

  • insufficient implementation of legislation ;
  • poor knowledge of fundamental rights ;
  •  inadequately trained civil servants ;
  • and sometimes simply due to discrimination and xenophobia.
