Noam Chomsky on Family Separation & the U.S. Roots of Today’s Refugee Crisis

Federal officials say 711 children remain separated from their parents despite Thursday’s court-imposed deadline for the Trump administration to reunite all migrant children separated from their parents by immigration officials at the border. More than 400 parents have been deported back to their home countries while their children remain in U.S. custody in facilities scattered across the United States. For more on the Trump administration’s family separation policy and the roots of today’s refugee crisis, DN! speaks with world-renowned political dissident, linguist, author and professor Noam Chomsky.
