FMIP Director Interviewed by Dallas TV Station: “Border Crisis: Immigrants or Refugees? Why it Matters”

Dr. Faith Nibbs was interviewed on July 12 by WFAA-TV (Ch. 8-ABC) in Dallas about issues related to the influx of unaccompanied children at the Texas-Mexico border.

Refoulement is a breach of international law, Dr. Nibbs noted.
