Lori Nessel Points to Prevalence of Family Separation

Lori Nessel (’92), Professor of Law and Director, Immigrants’ Rights/International Human Rights Clinic at Seton Hall University School of Law, was quoted in a New York Times article chronicling one migrant mother’s legal odyssey navigating the immigration and child welfare systems towards reuniting with her son (“‘Yo Soy la Mamá’: A Migrant Mother’s Struggle to Get Back Her Son,” Mar. 25). “When people think of family separation, they think of the Southern border and kids in cages. But people don’t realize how much this occurs every day in the interior of the country.”
