Deporting children who are rape victims

Elena from Honduras

Young girls are raped by gang members and forced to work for them--but when they flee with their family to the US, they are deported back to their home countries.

Read this heart-breaking report by Nicholas Kristof, New York Times columnist.

This is the policy of our government, approved by President Obama, who in general tries to improve immigration policy.

But refugees like Elena from Honduras are deported even though their lives and safety are in danger.

We bear some of the guilt for these policies.  

We must change things for Elena.
