MIGRANT CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

They are minors under 18 years of age who, for different reasons, left for other states of the country or for the United States; Some travel accompanied by a relative or coyote, but on other occasions they travel alone.

These minors are exposed to more dangers along the way and in the place of destination, as they do not have enough experience to defend themselves against abuse by strangers or authorities, this lack of experience makes them victims of deception that can result in being detained or in serious problems. Likewise, they are more easily victims of trafficking.

  • Restore communication between the child and his or her parents.
  • Search in hostels for minors, detention centers, and migratory centers.
  • Procedures with institutions to expedite the return of children to their communities.
  • Psychosocial care for migrant children, adolescents and their families.
