In the article “Families Separated at Border by Trump Reach Settlement” ( Oct 16, 2023) taught me that kids at such a young age tend to be separated from their families. As when they start growing apart for a longer period of time until they unfortunately get reunited they tend not to recognize their parents due to the fact of being away from each other for a long time Showing that families don’t get reunited for a very long time or at all. And even though there have been lawsuits against the federal court over the abuse and the emotional distress not much has been done and things just tend to worsen for the families. Despite having multiple parents travel back to the U.S. they still don’t encounter their children and report back to their countries alone and only hope for the best.
I believe that what is happening to the families is quite ignorant. The reasoning in why I believe this is ignorant is because the government is only thinking about deporting the families back to México and building the wall to prevent them from coming and getting as many people’s backs as possible and not truly caring or putting in that much effort into reuniting the families and taking care of the children’s physical and mental health.
As I continue to learn more about how the families are affected and the hidden issues between this I want to discover stories of children who have lived in those shelters and see an insight into it and hear their sorties nd to find out where they are now.
