Trump Administration’s Immigration Family Separation Policy Harms Children, Society, Physicians For Human Rights Officers Say

BMJ Opinion: The long-lasting damage of Trump’s family separation and child detention policy
Kathryn Hampton, network program officer, and Homer Venters, director of programs, both at Physicians for Human Rights, discuss the Trump administration’s immigration family separation policies, writing, “The man-made crisis of family separation and child detention demands that we use our scientific knowledge and stature to tell the truth about how this policy is causing harm. … The long-lasting damage caused by family separation and child detention isn’t limited to children, or even to their families. It causes harm to all of us who come to accept this practice in the form of dehumanization and loss of empathy…” (6/22).
