Summary: 

In 2014, Mexico updated its laws, incorporating the norms of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, directly prohibiting immigration detention of children. This step forward for children and migrants rights necessitated a need to look for ways to implement alternatives to detention for immigrant children in Mexico. To do this, Mexico has established a national working group bringing together all releveant implementers - including child right authorities, CSOs, goverrnment departments, and UN Agencies.
