Immigrant children still being separated from their parents

Those who are seeking refuge in the United States have faced tremendous hardship just to get here and then agony at the border. The recent political climate has not helped and there are countless stories of immigrants at the border having their children taken from them.

A recent article in the New York Times estimates that more than 700 children have been taken from their parents since October. Over 100 of these children are under the age of 4. The Department of Homeland Security says that the children are removed if the parents cannot be verified or if they think the children are in danger. But, Trump officials have been toying with the idea of closing family detention facilities and replacing them with shelters that only hold adults and those that only hold children. This may be a way to deter families migrating into the country. The children who are removed at the border are placed in shelters run by organizations. The organizations try to find relatives of the children in the U.S., but many of these children remain in custody indefinitely.

An attorney who practices immigration law understands how important it is for families to stay together. An attorney understands why their clients and their family want to live in the United States and will work hard to attempt to make sure that happens. An attorney can help their clients keep their family together and work through the immigration and citizenship process.

Many immigrants to Florida have come to the United States in order to have a better life. It is commonsense that parents need to remain with their children.
