12/31/18 mmigrant parents in Maryland concerned about being deported may now designate someone to care for their children under an expansion of emergency guardianship measures that take effect Tuesday.
It’s the latest move by state legislators to push back against the immigration policies of President Donald Trump. Attorneys behind the effort say it will reassure parents and prevent their children from becoming wards of the state.
“It’s emergency family planning. That’s what we were trying to provide people” said Cam Crockett, an attorney in Bethesda.
