Migrant Families on a Troubled Border
Texas Tribune Staff

The Texas Tribune continues its intensive coverage of the crisis along the U.S.-Mexican border. Reporters look at how immigrant parents are dealing with separation from their young children, and also examine how the Trump administration is responding (or not) to public pressure over its policies. “I know that she's been traumatized, a 6-year-old girl, and she's never been separated from us,” says one mother. Other coverage tracks the daily advances, setbacks, and uncertainties of a chaotic situation. All of The Tribune’s reporting on this topic is collected here under the heading Families Divided.
