MCWNN 2008: Joining Forces: Ensuring the Safety and Well-Being of Immigrant Children

Delivered at the Second National MCWNN Forum at Chicago Bar Association, Chicago, IL (April 2008)

The National Forum included a joint session with the National Immigrant Justice Center and the Immigrant Children Lawyers Network, which brought together professionals from the legal community and child welfare agencies to focus on issues that affect them both within the arena of immigration and child welfare. Over the past year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement has intensified immigration enforcement activities by conducting several large-scale worksite raids across the country. From an in-depth study of three communities, this report details the impact of these raids on the well-being of children. The report provides detailed recommendations to a variety of stakeholders to help mitigate the harmful effects of worksite raids on children.
