In an opinion piece in USA Today, Professor Lindsay M. Harris urges an end to separating families who are seeking asylum in the United States and offers family case management as an alternative.

Taking to task former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security John Kelly’s assertion these separations will “deter more movement” to the U.S., Harris argues the practice is neither legal nor effective. “If so,” she then asks, “why do instances of family separation ... continue to be documented?”

Read Harris’s answer to this question and more on family case management as an alternative to detention and family separation here in the full text of the USA Today piece.
