Beyond the Headlines: Child Migrant Labor

March 17, 2023

An explosive report in the New York Times found that hundreds of unaccompanied children are being exploited for their labor by some of America's biggest companies. Child labor is only possible through multiple failures of the protection system to prevent such abuses.

In this episode of The Advocast, Michele Garnett McKenzie, deputy director of The Advocates for Human Rights, is joined by attorneys Kim Boche, who represents unaccompanied children facing removal, and Lindsey Greising, who represents victims of labor trafficking, to understand how the legal system protects - or puts at risk - unaccompanied children.
