"Reducing Protections for Noncitizen Children — Exacerbating Harm and Trauma"

The New England Journal of Medicine

On  June  26,  2018,  a  federal  judge ordered the Trump administration  to  reunite  families  that it had separated at the U.S.–Mexico  border.  As  of  mid-Octo-ber,  however,  an  analysis  by  the  American  Civil  Liberties  Union  showed  that  245  children  were  still in government custody. About half  those  children  remained  in  the United States when their parents were deported and were not seeking  reunification;  the  other  half  were  still  waiting  to  be  re-united with their parents.
