In Scott County, teachers and staff are on standby. To make sure a child doesn’t go home to an empty house, bus drivers have been given strict instructions to have a “visual reference to a parent or guardian” before they drop the student off. If there is not a parent home, the child will be taken back to school, McGee said.
I find it hard to comprehend what day-to-day life must be like for young, immigrant children living in the US. As if going to school under the threat of gun violence wasn’t enough – they now have to confront the daily reality that their parents may have been taken away by ICE by the time they get home.
