Pediatricians Against Family Separation

Separating immigrant children from their families causes irreversible lifelong harm. As a pediatrician, I firmly oppose this practice and demand its immediate discontinuation.

Why is this important?

Separating immigrant children from their families causes permanent and irreversible harm. To quote AAP President Dr. Colleen Kraft, this practice “contradicts everything we stand for as pediatricians.” Let’s join together to oppose family separation and promote the health and wellness of all children.
