    “Many of the parents were told that signing a document relinquishing their rights or their request for asylum was the only or the fastest way to be reunified with their children,” said Michelle Brané, director of the Migrant Rights and Justice Program at the Women’s Refugee Commission, and a member of the steering committee set up by the ACLU to track down deported parents.

    “There just aren’t that many interpreters available,” Michelle Brané, director of the Women’s Refugee Commission’s migrant rights and justice program, told The Daily Beast. “The fact that the parents have already been deported, and that a lot of [family reunification efforts] are going to have to happen by phone, mixed in with the language difficulties, makes this a life-or-death issue.”

    According to numbers released last Thursday evening, of the approximate 2551 children and youth eligible for reunification, HHS had identified 386 children with parents who have been removed and in another country. HHS indicated that through the Office of Refugee Resettlement parents of 299 children had been contacted by that point. The Administration informed Judge Dana Sabraw that they were also forming a working group within the Administration to effect the reunification.

    The ACLU has also formed a steering group to assist in the reunification with the groups Kids in Need of Defense, the Women’s Refugee Commission and Justice in Motion part of that ACLU led effort. The Department of Justice has said that 163 parents have indicated a desire against reunification. Critics question what that means. In early August Judge Sabraw told the Administration that “The reality is that for every parent who is not located, there will be a permanently orphaned child and that is 100 percent the responsibility of the Administration.”

The concerts will feature an evening of acoustic music by legends in the music industry that will allow us all to unite our voices in song and solidarity.

    “Women’s Refugee Commission has tracked the detention of pregnant women in ICE custody for many years,” says Katharina Obser, a Senior Policy Adviser of the Women’s Refugee Commission. “In 2016, ICE issued a new policy that included a presumption of release for many pregnant women, called for regular review of their custody if they were detained, and also included stricter oversight of their care. But by the summer of 2017, we increasingly heard of more cases of pregnant women who were not only detained, but also receiving inadequate care, practices counter to ICE’s own policy.”

    “It’s going to require a really collaborative effort, given the magnitude of what we’re facing,” Leah Chavla, an international human rights lawyer and policy advisor with the Women’s Refugee Commission, told The Daily Beast. “It’s kind of ridiculous that we have to step into these big big gaps that [the Trump administration] left—it shows a callousness, and that the intent is not really to facilitate reunification.”

    “The government needs to step up and act in some way, make more information available to advocates,” Chavla said. “Something needs to happen—we are stepping in because the government failed.”
