In this day and age the majority of the world’s population is leaving its place of origin for a variety of reasons, ranging from economic to humanitarian, thus becoming migrants. At present, around 3% of the world’s population are migrants. Of the estimated 214 million migrants who crossed international borders in 2011, approximately one quarter were children. However, some of these migrants, including migrant children, are detained at the border for either not having the right documents or not having any all. Many are fleeing abuse, human trafficking and war. Immigration detention has a devastating effect on the physical, emotional and psychological development of children and must be stopped. Unfortunately, the immigration detention of children occurs globally.  For example, at the end of February 2012, 1,107 children (aged under 18 years) were in immigration detention in Australia. Of these 496 were in secure locked facilities, the remaining 611 in community detention. France detained 356 children with families in 2010, and there are approximately 100 unaccompanied minors currently detained in Greece, although these numbers fluctuate daily and most governments do not keep or release data about child detention.
