Billboards in Florida denounce ‘locking up’ migrant kids ahead of World Children’s Day

Ahead of World Children’s Day on Wednesday, Amnesty International USA erected two prominent billboards on Tuesday. One bright yellow sign in the city of Homestead reads: “You are now 7 miles away from where kids are locked up.” Another, in Orlando and about 10 miles outside of Disney World, reads, “We don’t believe in locking up children. Do you?”

In Orlando, the idea is to spread awareness of the plight of migrant children as families take their kids to Disney parks. Apart from the billboard, the group has put some signs on trucks and sidewalk pavements such as “Florida: Amusement parks. Beaches. Detained children.”
