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.
