Detention centres no place for migrant children, critics argue
from CBC News
CBC News has learned that over the past year 289 migrant children have been held in detention centres in Canada, many of whom were under the age of 10. The numbers, provided to the CBC by the Canada Border Services Agency, include children held with parents seeking asylum in Canada and also deportees waiting to leave. Detention is usually based on one of two grounds: either the CBSA is not satisfied with a person's proof of identity, or an officer believes the family is at risk of absconding.
