U.S. Separating Children from Parents at Border

Last Friday was National Missing Children’s Day, and there has been a lot of chatter over the weekend about the approximately 1,500 children who have come to the U.S. as unaccompanied minors and are presently unaccounted for. That comes amid recent stories of immigrant children from as young as one year old being forcibly separated from their parents at the border. These two developments are distinct and unrelated, but outrage over both has led public calls for accountability to crescendo. The Takeaway looks at how the Trump administration's immigration policy is contributing to these controversies. Plus, we report on the truck drivers' show of force in Brazil whose protests have ground the economy to a halt; and we invite you, the listener, to participate in our conversation about implicit bias and share your results.
