On Wednesday, the New York Times reported that more than 900 migrant children have been expelled under a pandemic border policy. Historically, young migrants who arrived at the border without an adult guardian were offered shelter, education, medical care, and a lengthy administrative process that allowed them to make a case for staying in the United States. President Trump’s latest border decrees abruptly halted this process. Some young migrants have been deported within hours of reaching American soil. Others have been woken up in the middle of the night and put on planes bound out of the country without any word to their families. On Wednesday, like yesterday and like today, Governor Beshear reminded Kentuckians that “We are going to get through this together … because just about every day, in every decision we make, we realize that our actions can either help or harm those around us, that we are more connected than we’ve ever been.” Today, like yesterday and the day before, many Kentuckians continue to consider what truly matters and how to show kindness and compassion. Because we are more connected than we’ve ever been. #TogetherKY #TeamKentucky #HealthyAtHome #HealthyAtWork
