Immigrant Kids Arriving In Chicago Shelters Sick And Traumatized

Immigrant kids are arriving in Chicago shelters sick and traumatized, according to a new report from ProPublica Illinois.

Reporters there talked to officials at the shelters, who say they’re seeing a spike in contagious diseases unlike anything they’ve seen before.

Jodi Cohen is one of the ProPublica reporters who broke the story. She spoke with WBEZ’s Melba Lara.
