On Thursday, The Brazilian Report wrote about the (at least) 49 Brazilian children who have been affected by the U.S. government’s policy of treating people who cross the border illegally as criminals. The move caused children to be separated from their parents, who remained detained until their trial and, in most cases, deportation.
The Brazilian Report spoke to Felipe Santarosa, Brazil’s Deputy Consul in Houston, Texas. He said that Brazilian diplomats do not yet know the identities of the Brazilian minors, only their location. Mr. Santarosa spoke to The Brazilian Report via Skype.
