NJ: Breaking up families is as cold as ICE (Opinion)
Jersey Journal – August 02, 2017
Principle 6 of the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, passed by the United Nations in 1959, states: “The child, for the full and harmonious development of his personality, needs love and understanding. He shall, wherever possible, grow up in the care and under the responsibility of his parents.” Principle 6 is under attack today in the United States as ICE officials aggressively seek to detain and deport undocumented non-criminal parents of young children.
