Two new reports from the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP) document impacts of the current immigration context on our nation’s youngest children. Our findings are based on interviews and focus groups in 2017 with 150 early childhood educators and parents in six states—California, Georgia, Illinois, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. In this field work, CLASP found troubling effects on young children in immigrant families, including signs and behaviors of distress, as well as serious risks to young children’s healthy development. On this webinar, the report authors will discuss the study findings, including impacts on young children, their parents, and early childhood educators, and recommendations for stakeholders at all levels to safeguard the wellbeing of children in immigrant families.
