Immigrant Children Ordered to Appear in Court Alone
In the U.S., immigrant children as young as 3 years old now have to go through court to be reunited with their families. The children are facing the immigration process without their mom or dad. There are different opinions about this process. Ashley Tabaddor, the president of an immigration association, insisted, “We are a nation of laws. We value fairness, justice, and transparency.” But Lindsay Toczylowski, a director at the Immigrant Defenders Law Center, described a 3-year-old child in court. Seeing him trying to climb up the table at court, she felt ashamed of what they were doing to these kids. The federal judge commanded the White House to reunify the families in 14 days, but nobody knows how long the whole process will actually take with these little children.
