This book tells the story of six Central American and Mexican children as they try to navigate the American federal detention system. The story follows the children from their arrest by immigration officials to their deportation proceedings, and from their release from detention to their struggle to build a new life in the United States. This book examines how the U.S. started detaining immigrant children and what can be learned moving forward.
