Migrant kids could end up in already strained foster system

Updated : June 26, 2018 11:28 AM IST

Foster care advocates say the government won't likely be able to reunite thousands of children separated from parents who crossed the border illegally, and some will end up in an American foster care system that is stacked against Latinos and other minorities.
With few Spanish-speaking caseworkers, it's a challenge tracking down family members of the children who live south of the US-Mexico border, and other relatives living in the states might be afraid to step forward to claim them because of fears of being detained or deported themselves.
Many complications have arisen for these separated families since the Trump administration adopted its "zero-tolerance" policy on entering the country illegally.
