Quote of the Day on 17 June 2014 at Oklahoma Policy Institute

“I’ve had parents, and even some of the children tell me, ‘There is no childhood here. There’s not any calculated attempt to game the system. There’s just one last attempt to survive, and try to have some quality of life.”

-Elizabeth Kennedy, a Fulbright scholar who is researching the causes of child migration in Central America. Currently 255 children who were detained crossing the border are being held at Fort Sill (Source: http://nbcnews.to/1vzY2Ft)

CITA DEL DÍA 17 DE JUNIO DEL INSTITUTO DE POLÍTICA OKLAHOMA

“Algunos padres, e incluso algunos de los niños me dicen, ‘No hay infancia aquí'”, dijo Elizabeth Kennedy, una becaria Fulbright que actualmente está investigando las causas de la migración infantil en Centroamérica. “No hay ningún intento calculado para jugar con el sistema. Sólo hay un último intento por sobrevivir, y tratar de tener cierta calidad de vida. “
