Children at the Border

The Oregon Pediatric Society and the American Academy of Pediatrics strongly assert that immigrant families at the southern U.S. border should remain together and kept out of detention facilities, which have been shown to have a severe effect on the physical and emotional well-being of children. Despite the Executive Order, there is still critical work to be done in reuniting separated children with their parents, supporting unaccompanied minors, and passing new immigration legislation. We sincerely appreciate Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley for his leadership, and bringing attention to the tragedy at immigrant detention centers for children.
