Update On Migrant Women Detained In Texas

July 1, 2018

NPR's Lulu Garcia-Navarro talks with Bethany Carson, immigration researcher and organizer for the nonprofit group Grassroots Leadership, about immigrant women detained without their children.

GARCIA-NAVARRO: Do you or do these women know or does the government know where these children may be?

CARSON: Some of them know where their children are. They've told they've been sent to places as far away as New York. Most of them have not been able to communicate on any kind of a regular basis with their kids. Some still have no idea where they are and are writing us letters, saying, please help us find my child. I haven't talked to them for almost a month. I have no idea where they are.
