Where are the children? Hear the experts


Families belong together!
In April, the Trump White House issued a policy to separate children from their parents, relatives, or other adults who accompanied them in crossing the border, whether apprehended during an illegal crossing or, in numerous reported cases, legally presenting themselves for asylum. The policy involved prosecuting all adults who were detained at the U.S.–Mexico border, sending the parents to federal jails, and placing children and infants under the supervision of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. According to government officials, the policy led to the separation of more than 3,000 children from their parents.

We are all outraged at the separation of families at the border. To understand the situation at hand and what actions we can take, we have invited two experts on immigration policy and human rights, Roeland de Wilde and Veena Siddharth. Each one will give a presentation, followed by a Q&A session and discussion.
