DATE/TIME:Saturday, June 23, 201810:00 AM
This Saturday, June 23, SDPA will be joining the San Diego Families Belong Together March at the Civic Center at 10 AM. Families Belong Together opposes the separation of children from their parents along the U.S. border with Mexico and at other ports of entry into the U.S., a policy that was instituted by the Trump administration last month. The policy calls for children, including infants, to be removed from their parents and placed often indefinitely in the custody of the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
On June 14, 2018, the APA issued a Letter to President Trump, urging the administration to end its policy of separating children and families detained while crossing the border. APA warned that trauma from family separation is a significant social determinant of mental and physical health, and referenced decades of documented research showing the harmful effects of parent-child separation on children and caregivers’ emotional and psychological well-being. APA implored the administration to reconsider this deleterious policy and commit to the more humane practice of housing families together pending immigration proceedings.
