ICE Is Forcing Toddlers Separated From Parents to Appear Alone in Court
After implementing a policy of forcibly separating children from their parents, the Trump administration is now forcing these little children, including toddlers, to appear unaccompanied before immigration judges.
It’s…going about as well as one would expect. The Texas Tribune reports:
“We were representing a 3-year-old in court recently who had been separated from the parents. And the child — in the middle of the hearing — started climbing up on the table,” said Lindsay Toczylowski, executive director of Immigrant Defenders Law Center in Los Angeles. “It really highlighted the absurdity of what we’re doing with these kids.”
