All people deserve the right to raise their children in a healthy and safe environment, but the administration’s immigration policies are tearing families apart

The Trump-Pence administration caused international backlash by forcibly separating roughly 3,000 immigrant children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border. The United Nations called it inhumane, physicians warned of extreme emotional harm, and thousands of people protested in "Keep Families Together" marches across the United States.

More than 250,000 doctors have urged the administration to end family separation policies.

The American Medical Association warned that the administration’s policies could cause children extreme physical and emotional stress, resulting in trauma that could last a lifetime.
