Don't Use Your Words!

This chapter analyzes the situation of Central American children seeking refuge in the U.S.; for them, the gap between adult impositions and their own experiences means that their emotions—namely, their fears of bodily harm—are not taken seriously as they proceed through the immigration system seeking relief from deportation to dangerous homelands. I present as well an exhibit of drawings by children just released from detention to illustrate an alternative range of feelings.

Keywords:   immigration, Central America, drawings
