Doctors Stand with Immigrant Children

The American Academy of Pediatrics issued a powerful statement calling upon the Administration to protect children, including those seeking safety in the United States. Dr. Fernando Stein, President of the AAP stated, “The Executive Orders signed [January 25, 2017] are harmful to immigrant children and families throughout the country.” We couldn’t agree more with the AAP’s statements that “No child should ever live in fear,” and that “Immigrant children and families are an integral part of our communities and our nation, and they deserve to be cared for, treated with compassion, celebrated.” To read the AAP’s statement in its entirety, click here.
