US: Bishops oppose Trump’s decision ending program for unaccompanied child migrants
Crux – August 22, 2017
The U.S. bishops are protesting the decision of the Trump administration to end a program open to migrants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras in an effort to control the flood of unaccompanied children into the United States trying to escape violence in their home countries. In 2014 alone, more than 60,000 unaccompanied children made their way into the country causing a massive backlog in the courts.
