In immigration news, an Associated Press investigation has revealed that parents deported from the U.S. may lose their children to adoption without their knowledge. The AP found “holes in the system” that allow for state judges to put children of deported Central American immigrants in the custody of U.S. families without notifying the parents. This could also affect immigrants who crossed the border during the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy, under which border officials routinely separated parents from their children as they entered the country.
