via ‘Anguish’ at the border as immigrant children are separated from parents – AOL News

McALLEN, Texas — Facing dozens of migrants shackled at their waist and ankles, public defender Miguel “Andy” Nogueras asked a question that he had rarely asked before last week: Have you been separated from your children?

Last Thursday, a Central American woman was among several in the McAllen, Texas courthouse who said yes.

Nogueras asked how old her child is so that he could refer her to one of his attorneys, and the answer haunted him through the rest of the day.
