In 2006 and 2007, CICW, in collaboration with the American Humane Association, published two seminal volumes on the emerging issues associated with immigrant children and families and their involvement in the public child welfare system. These issues were published as part of American Humane’s quarterly journal for child welfare professionals, Protecting Children.
