Chaparral: Children disappeared in raids

War is being waged on the children at our borders. Tens of families were affected by recent raids in Chaparral, a border town in Texas.

“My concern is that I don’t want any children to be terrorized or separated from their families,” she said.

Officials of the Mexican Consulate in El Paso said they were still trying Friday to figure out what to do with five siblings who stayed in Chaparral after their parents were deported to Mexico on Monday. Some of the children are U.S. citizens because they were born in the United States.

This is another nail in the coffin of our immigration system. When children are left parentless, families are destroyed and kids are terrorized we know our democracy isn’t working, and neither is our immigration system.

If anyone has updates from other border raids, please post them here!
