Perhaps no other policy implemented by the current president has generated as much controversy as the family separation policy. The policy was implemented in April 2018 and, following immense public opposition and political pressure, it was suspended for an indefinite time in June 2018 through an executive order. Facilities that house children separated from their families have been subjected to protests, as have those individuals who work at such facilities. With heated and impassioned arguments made for and against the family separation policy, there is much confusion and misinformation in the media. Come learn about the history of U.S. immigration policy specifically as it pertains to Latin America, the reasons why inhabitants of Latin America are fleeing their homelands in search of a better life in this country, and the impact of the family separation policy on those involved.
