Immigration Activists Speak Up for Migrant Children & Easier Access to EpiPens on CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review

 

Hartford, CT – Starting at 7 p.m. Friday, Connecticut Network viewers will get an update on the state's response to the housing needs of hundreds of immigrant children on the latest episode of CT-N Capitol Report: Week in Review.

 

Last week many immigration activists throughout the state expressed their concern over Governor Dannel Malloy's refusal to temporarily house illegal immigrant children from Central America on behalf of the federal government. Just as 320 children were being placed with relatives within the state this past week, the Governor responded to the criticism over his administration’s decision and discussed new developments that may result in the state potentially housing migrant children in the future.

 

Capitol Report will also cover the Governor signing a bill into law that will allow school employees to administer epinephrine, commonly known as EpiPen, to any student who is suffering from a severe allergic reaction. Previously, only students who had submitted written authorization to their school were permitted access to EpiPen treatment. The new law will also require schools to train employees on how to administer epinephrine to students when the school nurse is unavailable.

 

Also on the agenda, the Eyewitness Identification Task Force was provided an update on the use of new procedures to identify crime suspects and the recently formed task force to study cadmium in children’s jewelry held its first meeting.

 

Capitol Report: Week in Review summarizes the activity at the State Capitol during the week, using voice over and graphics to combine history, context, and next steps in the process with full-length excerpts from the week's proceedings.  The program premieres on CT-N every Friday night at 7:00 p.m., then rebroadcasts at Noon and 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays, 8:00 p.m. on Sundays, and 6:00 a.m. Monday mornings; check CT-N’s online program schedule for additional airtimes.  Each episode runs between 30 and 60 minutes.
