US: Deported Parents’ Agonizing Wait

New Video Shows Impact of Separation From Children

Thursday 06 September 2018

(Tegucigalpa, September 5, 2018) — Hundreds of children remain detained in the US and separated from their parents more than five weeks after a court-ordered deadline to reunify them, Human Rights Watch said today in releasing a new video with Justice in Motion. About 360 of these still-separated parents were deported alone without the children with whom they traveled to the US.

“The anguish of these families is palpable,” said Clara Long, senior researcher with the US Program at Human Rights Watch. “Not knowing how their children are or why the government won’t release them causes tremendous strain.”
