The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has just published a policy statement, Detention of Immigrant Children, in response to the increase in unaccompanied minors and immigrant families at U.S. borders. This statement calls for the following basic "standards of care" for immigrant and refugee children:
They deserve our compassion and assistance
They should never be separated from their parents or families
They should never be placed in detention centers
This report healthychildren.org/English/he... discusses some of the issues and has a link to the excellent AAP policy paper (which I would upload if I only knew how... ).
It’s worth a read.
