Senators Martin Heinrich and Tom Udall are pushing a bill to protect kids when their parents are detained by ICE.

They’re sponsoring the Humane Enforcement and Legal Protections Bill also known as HELP.

It will allow detained parents to arrange for the care for their kids.

It would also allow kids to visit their parents during detention and give parents the right to say goodbye to their kids prior to being taken into custody.
