“The bill will help ensure the safety and well-being of immigrant children by allowing their caregivers to quickly and easily make alternative arrangements for their care if the caregivers are facing deportation, grave illness, or other situations that leave them unable to care for the child,” said Gilda Holguin, Managing Attorney of Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), Newark. “It will help ensure that immigrant children continue to receive the care they deserve and that alternative caregivers can advocate for the child’s needs at school and for healthcare, among other key issues.”
