Why the Central American Children Migrants Need Full Adjudication of Their Protection Claims

Donald Kerwin, Executive Director of teh Center for Migration Studies, writes on the Hiffington Post: 

"As Congress and the Administration consider proposals to eviscerate the heretofore obscure (now demonized) Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 (TVPRA), it makes sense to review the case for change and to query whether the proposed cure might not do more harm than good. In fact, repeal of the TVPRA would do little to address the factors driving child migration from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, and would prevent these children from receiving a full, fair and independent determination of whether they would likely be killed, tortured or trafficked if returned home."
