Cosponsor Resolution Commending Allison Alice Dunnigan

As co-chair of the Multicultural Media Caucus and a champion of media diversity, I write to urge you to cosponsor a resolution commending Allison Alice Dunnigan. Ms. Dunnigan was a pioneering journalist who overcame poverty, sexism, and racism to become
the first African-American woman to receive press credentials to the White House, Congress, and Supreme Court. Ms. Dunnigan also served as Washington Bureau Chief for the Associate Press from 1947 until 1961, during which time she ensured that readers throughout
the nation were informed about how governmental decisions impacted their lives and fought to make sure that public officials made comments on the record about policies impacting minority communities in particular.

LAST CALL: DHS/HHS Letter on 1,475 Unaccounted for Children

As you may have read, the Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Refugee Resettlement recently conducted a survey of the 7,635 unaccompanied children placed with sponsors, the majority of whom were close or extended family. Of those children,
the whereabouts of 1,475 could not be ascertained. The most likely reason for this appears to be that sponsors were simply unwilling to participate in the surveys. However, in 2014 eight unaccompanied children were placed in the hands of human traffickers
who forced them to work for 12 hours each day in deplorable conditions on an egg farm in Ohio. The failure to fully account for these 1,475 children leaves open the possibility that they too may be under the care of unscrupulous individuals.
