"Split at the Root" with Julie Schwietert Collazo from IFT, Part 1 Those who whisper

    • Society & Culture

Julie is part of a new Netflix documentary, "Split at the Root,"  where a group of women comes together to reunite migrant families separated by the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy. 

It all started with Yeni González, an immigrant mother from Guatemala, whose three children were taken by ICE agents and transferred to New York. 

Yeni remained alone in a detention center in Arizona, unable to post $7,500 bail. A group of American mothers heard Yeni's story. They moved quickly to raise money for the bond so they could then safely transport her state by state to New York. 

This will be the beginning of Immigrant families together.
