Unauthorized Disclosure: What’s Missing in Discussions About Crisis with Child Refugees at US-Mexico Border

My appearance on the great podcast hosted by Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola.

As put by Gosztola:

Fifty-two thousand children have fled their homes in countries in Central America and journeyed to the United States. Some of them came with their families and the vast majority of them are now being put through a deportation regime, which President Barack Obama’s administration is committing resources to expediting so they will be sent back to the countries they fled.

Lacking in all of the attention to this crisis is the role of the US. To fully understand the crisis with immigrants or, more accurately, refugees seeking asylum in the US, there must be a focus on the history which has led to this moment.

For the rest of Gosztola’s write up and the audio:
