Reps. Roybal-Allard And Torres Introduce Help Separated Families Act

'WRC applauds this effort by Representatives Roybal-Allard and Torres to help ensure that children in the child welfare system who have detained or deported parents will be able to reunify with their parents or live in the permanent care of other relatives, and that states have the ability and flexibility to appropriately serve families affected by enforcement and to work towards the goal of family reunification,' said Emily Butera, senior policy advisor in the Women's Refugee Commission's (WRC) Migrant Rights & Justice program.
