Months after Reversal of Zero Tolerance Policy, Family Separation Still Thrives

Family Separation Still Thrives in the USPresident of the United States, Donald Trump, signed an executive order on the 20th of June implying a backtrack from his highly controversial immigration enforcement policy tagged zero-tolerance policy. Zero tolerance policy empowers authorities to expose adults caught crossing the border illegally to criminal prosecution. The policy also allows authorities to separate such parents from their children. A week after the president retreated from this policy, Dana M. Sabraw, a federal judge, ruled against the separations and called on the government to bring the affected families back together except in cases that pose a danger to the safety of the children. It has now been revealed that immigrant families are being quietly separated at the border. Sometimes, the separation is based on unproven allegations of misconduct or insignificant violations. Catholic Charities lawyers have discovered at least 16 new separation cases over the past three months. Catholic Charities Lawyers provide legal services to the children of immigrants in government custody in New York. They claimed to have discovered these new cases chance as well as through looking into things after the placement of children in temporary foster care and homes with or without traces that they got to the border with their parents.

A Case At Hand

A Salvadoran father called ProPublica, in the latter part of last month, to report one of such separations. Julio, detained in South Texas, said a Customs and Border Protection agent took his four-year-old son from him after seeking asylum across the border. Reacting to the situation, Jodi Ziesemer, a supervising attorney at Catholic Charities, said she had no idea the boy was separated from his father. These attorneys said Immigration Officials are taking advantage of any justification in their grasp to disqualify parents, with or without worthy proofs in their claim. They are equally empowered by an administration that does not totally shy away from family separation.
