A New Family Separation Policy?: Trump Administration Separates Some Migrant Mothers From Their Newborns Before Returning Them to Detention
Trump Administration Separates Some Pregnant Migrants From Their Newborns Before Returning Them to Detention is part three in an investigative series by Tina Vasquez for Rewire News. As Rewire.News reported in part one of the series, migrants prosecuted under the “zero-tolerance” policy are remanded to U.S. Marshals Service (USMS) custody, where they are not receiving adequate services, and are shackled when accessing prenatal and postpartum care. Some women are even shackled during birth, as Rewire.News reported in part two of this series.
