    Later that afternoon, Gelernt got in touch with a group of immigrant-rights advocates. Together, they came up with a plan to assemble their own list of the children and parents who remained separated. It was a complex undertaking that immigration attorneys have been discussing, in mostly aspirational terms, for months. Now, in order to hold the government to the judge’s deadline, they had a single weekend to pull something together. “The A.C.L.U. wanted this by Sunday night,” Michelle Brané, of the Women’s Refugee Commission, told me. “And it was a holiday weekend.”

    Livelihoods support can provide a route to economic well-being with the means of moving beneficiaries on the path from survival to long-term recovery. Cash-based interventions are one type in the form of direct financial assistance. How can we acknowledge and mitigate the risks of cash for survivors of gender-based violence? What are the models to consider? In this episode, we talked with Tenzin Manell of the Women’s Refugee Commission to hear more.

    “Our message has been clear all along: Do not risk your own life or the life of your child by attempting to enter the United States illegally. Apply lawfully and wait your turn.”

    But in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere, attorneys like Michelle Brané of the Women’s Refugee Commission said the harm done to families by breaking them up as they crossed the border must be rectified.

    “That opens up the reality that there are likely many U.S. citizen children who have been separated from their parents,” said Michelle Brané, director of migrant rights at the Women’s Refugee Commission, a national advocacy group.

    In at least one other case, she said an American child had been separated from his family at the border and sent to a state welfare agency because he did not qualify for placement with the Office of Refugee Resettlement., which is charged with the care of immigrant children.

    “If the numbers get too big ... they start saying, ‘Well, this isn’t legitimate. These aren’t real asylum-seekers,’” said Michelle Brané, director of the migrant rights and justice program for the Women’s Refugee Commission, a national advocacy group. “Anytime you have an actual serious conflict or crisis, the numbers are going to be high. Those high numbers are exactly what that process was created to address.”

    Advocates worry that this policy will result in potential sponsors being scared off or unable to come forward for children, because the adults may themselves be undocumented or living with others who are; the Women’s Refugee Commission and the National Immigrant Justice Center have said that the new agreement indicates that “DHS and HHS see children as bait or suspects first, not children.”

    Michelle Brané, director of the Migrant Rights and Justice program at the Women’s Refugee Commission, told TYT, “We’re really concerned that this kind of a policy drives children further into danger.” She said it means children could “sit in ORR custody [longer]…children in custody long-term is not a good idea.”

    “I come from a family of refugees—my mother left Hungary during WWII, and my dad’s from Argentina,” said Brané. “So I grew up with refugee stories. It hit home for me.” After stints as a human right officer in Bosnia and at the Justice Department, she joined the Women’s Refugee Commission. “We're the people who have access to go into the facilities, who understand what they're required to do by law, what the child welfare protocols should be. We also visit the border patrol stations and the processing centers where the actual separation are happening.”

    “This shows what we’ve been saying all along, which is people fleeing persecution and fleeing for their lives are not going to be deterred,” said Michelle Brané, director of the migrant rights and justice program for the Women’s Refugee Commission. “Deterrence doesn’t work; all it does is put people in further danger.”

    Se supone que los migrantes reciben un ticket por estos objetos –como un comprobante– y que se los devuelven cuando son liberados, según explica Michelle Brané, directora de Derechos y Justicia de Migrantes en la Women's Refugee Commission. Pero este sistema no siempre funciona.

    “En esas circunstancias, no siempre trasladan sus posesiones de un lugar a otro”, afirma. “Las guardan en un almacén enorme y en general es muy, muy difícil que se las devuelvan. Muchas veces se pierden de manera indefinida... no he oído muchos casos de gente que haya recuperado sus pertenencias”.

    “My position would be that is not necessary, if they themselves physically separated the parent from that child and there’s a court order to reunify them,” said Michelle Brané, a director at the non-profit Women’s Refugee Commission. “It’s not law, it’s just their own policy.”

    “They seem to be ignoring the really obvious option of releasing parents to be reunified,” Brané added.

    "All that is on people's mind is what happened to their children," she said. "Concerns have been fear of not knowing when they will see their children."
