Donald Trump's *new* child prisons:

I wish it weren't true, but I have to report a new horror: Donald Trump is planning to open more huge, unregulated child prisons.

After all we've seen, Team Trump's answer is to double down on the inhumane treatment of immigrant and refugee children.

This doesn't represent who we are. Stand against their cruelty. Sign the petition and say you oppose any new child prisons.

These prisons wouldn't be subject to state child welfare requirements. They likely won't provide children with access to education, to exercise, to legal aid.

It's cruel. It's wrong. But, under Donald Trump, it's increasingly clear this is not unusual.

These are innocent children, not prisoners. We are responsible for their well-being. Sign the petition and say NO to new children's prisons.
