By us: 

Government-sanctioned family separation, anti-immigrant rhetoric and expanded deportation are public-health threats that we could never have imagined.

As pediatricians who work in communities rich with immigrant families, we have witnessed first-hand the collateral damage that this practice is having on our own patients and are responding to the mental-health needs of children gripped by fear of their families being ripped apart.
— Dr. Alan Shapiro and Dr. Julie Linton, "Family separation violates pediatricians' responsibility to protect children," Winston-Salem Journal (6/7/2018)
