On this episode of The Edit, we spoke with contributing writer Massoud Hayoun about his story on Vilma Carrillo, a migrant from Guatemala seeking asylum in the United States. Carrillo's daughter was born in the U.S. and has American citizenship; because immigration officials refused to detain a citizen with an asylum seeker, she was taken from her mother.
During the conversation, Hayoun discusses Carrillo's situation, the U.S.'s immense immigration backlog, and how the Trump administration has attempted to address this ongoing issue.
