Social Justice at the Border
July brought the nation's focus to the thousands of migrants, mostly children, arriving at our borders from Central America. NASW/Texas firmly believes that this is a humanitarian, rather than immigration, issue.
Dr. Mark Lusk, EdD, LMSW, ACSW of UTEP and Chair of the NASW/Texas Human Rights Committee has worked in this arena since long before it grabbed the national spotlight. Dr. Lusk spoke to this topic in the July issue of NETWORK and in the El Paso Times
"Unaccompanied Migrant Children: Overview & Recommendations
," also by Dr. Lusk, explores the root causes of this migration, the inherent complexities, and recommendations for a coordinated response.
