This segment from the June 22, 2018, episode of the series “Louisiana: The State We’re In” features Andre Moreau’s report on the Trump Administration’s zero tolerance immigration policy, which resulted in the separation of 2,300 children from their parents at the United States-Mexico border. He first interviews Bryn Stole, the Washington correspondent for the Advocate newspaper, who discusses the policy. He then conducts an in-studio interview with Lauren Aronson, the director of LSU’s Immigration Law Clinic. She discusses: the Flores settlement from 1997, which limits the amount of time the government can keep unaccompanied minors in detention; the government’s plan for family reunification; the shelters where the children are detained; and the United States’ obligation to asylum seekers.
