February 26, 2015 – Oregon WAND Program
THE CHILDREN WHO CAME ACROSS THE BORDER
Last summer thousands of Central American children came across the U.S. border without their parents. Until their immigration cases are resolved, these children are required to live in detention centers.
Janet Range, who supervises the education programs at three immigration detention centers in Portland, Oregon, will join us to discuss who these children are, why they have come to the United States, what happens to them while in they are in the detention centers, and where they go from here.
