DHS Had No Database to Track Migrant Children Separated From Their Parents

    Every time I hear about the immigrant kids separated from their parents, I think about how a simple simple app in Quickbase could have saved a ton of trouble and bad PR and hurt for the families. This is 2018 for goodness sakes.
    However, inspectors ?found no evidence such a database exists.? What they instead found was a flawed ?manually-compiled spreadsheet? prone to human error.
    There was also a lack of communication between each agency. For example, CBP officers had to report their information about immigrants on Microsoft Word documents and email them to HHS, a manual process ?vulnerable to human error? and ?increasing the risk that a child could become lost in the system, the report said.

    Thank you for posting. I was recently discussing just this. I only recently acquired my own QB license, but hope to be able to help causes such as these in the future.
