World Relief's Response to Unaccompanied Minors
World Relief, the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals, is responding to the crisis at the border with unaccompanied alien children (UACs) by working with local churches and community partners to provide welcome boxes and activity kits for unaccompanied children as well as encouraging and equipping people to advocate and pray. World Relief also submitted an official statement for the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations' Full Committee Hearing: Review of the President’s Emergency Supplemental Request.

Currently, the Office of Refugee Resettlement does not have enough resources to meet the needs of arriving UACs and fulfill its commitment to other refugee populations. Additionally, UACs who have been trafficked but lack proper documentation and access to legal representation are often deported though they qualify for special immigration visas.
