State officials have urged immigrant families to make plans for their children, in case parents are deported. Connecticut may be home to as many as 22,000 U.S. citizen children, whose parents are undocumented.
Hartford residents gathered Thursday at a city school to talk about a report that found the school district failed to protect students from abuse and neglect for the last decade. District leaders have a plan in place to address this longstanding problem.
A spokesman for the federal agency that oversees immigration enforcement said its agents will continue to refer to themselves as "police," even though Hartford cops and the city's mayor are asking them to stop.
