Advocate Yaël Published in PanAm Post on the Child Migrant Crisis

Advocate Yaël Ossowski was published in The PanAm Post on the fiscal policy of Quebec’s newly elected Liberal Party.

When families with young children escape the perils of economic hardship and gangster-dominated neighborhoods in Latin America to make their way to the American border, their chances for a better life are just within reach.

Most of them aim to connect with their family members and loved ones already living in the United States.

A costly and overly bureaucratic process awaits them if they follow all the rules and wait years. Alternatively, a short but dangerous journey across deserts and rivers, led by a high-pricedcoyote, grants them immediate access, but condemns them to illegal status in the country.
