This is the December 4, 2019 hearing on "Growing Up in Fear: How the Trump Administration's Immigration Policies Are Harming Children," held before the U.S. House Committee on Education and Labor. From the opening statement of Robby C. ''Bobby'' Scott: "Today's hearing will help us understand and address the impact of the Trump Administration's immigration policies on children, particularly undocumented children and children from mixed-status families. [...] We are here today because we have a legal responsibility to protect children living within our Nation's borders, regardless of when and how they got here. All children should have a safe and healthy childhood. Not only is this a principle embedded in our moral code, it is reflected in our Federal code as well. Federal laws protect the right of immigrant children and the children of immigrant parents to access many essential programs and services under the jurisdiction of this committee. Of particular interest, these rights include access to a public education for all students in this country." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Gabriela Barajas-Gonzalez, Olanrewaju Falusi, Pedra Martinez, and Mark H. Metcalf.
