The Office of the Attorney General is requesting information from Washington residents regarding the impacts that they are experiencing — or expect to experience — as a result of the Trump Administration’s family separation policy. 

As has been widely reported, the U.S. Department of Justice recently announced a zero-tolerance policy for crossings along the Southwest border. 

As part of this enforcement policy, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is detaining immigrants and asylum seekers, and separating parents from their children.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for the care and placement of those children, and historically has placed several hundred unaccompanied minors in Washington every year.

We are asking Washington residents to tell us if they or their family members have been affected by this policy or expect to be affected by it.

For example, if a Washington resident is currently housing or will soon be housing a child who has been separated from his or her parents pursuant to this policy, we would like to know.

Those with information about impacts like these that Washingtonians are experiencing as a result of this policy can call 1-844-323-3864 and let us know.

do children of convicts who are separated from their parents due their parents' illegal activity count?
