Dario's Story

Dario feared for his life in his native country, but told no one at the detention facility because he was afraid that the news could get back to his country and put his parents and siblings at risk.  An LOPC staff member explained the concepts of confidentiality and attorney-client privilege to the child’s potential custodian and assured her that the child would be screened by a local non-profit program, at which point the child should not hesitate to speak candidly about his fear of persecution.  The potential custodian said she would encourage Dario to tell the truth to the attorneys at the facility where he was being detained.
