USA Today: Chaos at the Border


Chaos at the Border

“The immediate fate of more than 2,300 immigrant children remains unclear as government officials and advocates scrambled Thursday to determine their next steps after President Donald Trump suddenly ended his policy of separating families apprehended at the border,” according to the Houston Chronicle report.
Said Michelle Brané, director of migrant rights at the Women’s Refugee Commission: “It’s chaos. Everything is just moving really fast … I am not convinced they have a plan for reunifying those they have separated.”
New York Times: “Parents said they still did not know how to track down their children, and struggled to find out any information through a 1-800 hotline set up by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement. Others who had located their children said they were still separated by thousands of miles and a bureaucratic maze they did not know how to navigate.”
