More than 400 parents were deported without their kids. This is what it takes to find them.

Palacios works part-time with Justice in Motion, an American NGO that, along with Kids in Need of Defense and Women's Refugee Commission, has partnered with the ACLU. He has found 19 deported parents thus far. One morning earlier this month, he boarded a public bus and went to a small village close to the Mexican border to reach another of these parents, Erik, who was deported without his 8-year-old son in June.
