    Pediatricians Speak Out Against President Trump’s Immigration Orders

    Pediatricians Speak Out Against President Trump’s Immigration Orders

    by Maggie Fox

    President Donald Trump's new immigration orders are harmful and will worsen the plight of children fleeing for their lives, pediatricians said Wednesday.

    And they will scare the children of immigrants already living in the country, causing toxic stress, the American Academy of Pediatrics said in a strongly worded statement.

    "The Executive Orders signed today are harmful to immigrant children and families throughout our country," AAP President Fernando Stein said. "Many of the children who will be most affected are the victims of unspeakable violence and have been exposed to trauma.

    "“Children do not immigrate, they flee.”"

    "Children do not immigrate, they flee," Stein said. "They are coming to the U.S. seeking safe haven in our country and they need our compassion and assistance. Broad scale expansion of family detention only exacerbates their suffering."

    One Trump order would stop federal funding to so-called sanctuary cities — a loose term that refers to communities that shield undocumented immigrants from deportation — unless the money is related to law enforcement.

    "These jurisdictions have caused immeasurable harm to the American people and to the very fabric of our Republic," the order reads. "Many aliens who illegally enter the United States and those who overstay or otherwise violate the terms of their visas present a significant threat to national security and public safety."

    The action also directs the hiring of 5,000 new border patrol agents and would triple the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

    A separate order redirects Homeland Security money to erect a "very large" wall on the southern border with Mexico, along with more detention facilities along the border.

    Stein said kids deserve to be healthy and safe.

    "Far too many children in this country already live in constant fear that their parents will be taken into custody or deported, and the message these children received today from the highest levels of our federal government exacerbates that fear and anxiety," Stein said.

    "No child should ever live in fear. When children are scared, it can impact their health and development. Indeed, fear and stress, particularly prolonged exposure to serious stress — known as toxic stress — can harm the developing brain and negatively impact short- and long-term health."

    Dr. Julie Linton has seen it firsthand.

    "I had a child I took care of in clinic a few months ago who came in complaining of headaches," said Linton, a pediatrician in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and co-chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics' Immigrant Health Special Interest group.

    "“It’s not a choice. If you are fleeing violence threatening the life of your child, you’re not making a choice. You’re making a decision to protect your baby.”"

    "He said he was told in school that his parents would be sent away and that's when his headaches started."

    Linton takes a deep breath when asked about the argument that parents should not have brought their children to the U.S. illegally in the first place.

    "As a mother myself, I cannot imagine what it would be like to be in a circumstance where I was fearing for the life, health and education of my child," she said.

    "What I see when I have these families in front of me is fearful parents with fearful children striving to have a better life, to have a safe life, and to have a hopeful life," she added.

    "It's not a choice. If you are fleeing violence threatening the life of your child, you're not making a choice. You're making a decision to protect your baby."

    Many schools have reported that children of immigrants — even those whose parents are established citizens — became fearful after Trump's election.

    "We urge President Trump and his Administration to ensure that children and families who are fleeing violence and adversity can continue to seek refuge in our country. Immigrant children and families are an integral part of our communities and our nation, and they deserve to be cared for, treated with compassion, and celebrated," Stein said.

    I have heard it all now. When Americans can't trust our Pediatricians any more than we can trust the CORRUPT MEDIA, we are indeed going to hell in a hand-basket.

    You low-down bunch of money-grubbing fools. Do you really think we're stupid? Do you really think that we don't see through this HUGE government-sponsored and paid for gravy train you're on for "the children"? Oh my God, you make me want to puke.

    What do you think the toxic stress is for all the American children in Chicago? What do you think the toxic stress is for all the American children whose parents don't have a job? What do you think the toxic stress is for all the American children living in cars because they lost their home or apartment because their parents can't pay the bills? What do you think the toxic stress is for all the American children who lost a family member murdered by an illegal alien? What do you think the toxic stress is for all the American children living months and years in Homeless Shelters?

    You all are a total disgrace playing into this "fleeing from violence" scam. If their village or town has a high crime rate, then move to another village, town or city in their country with a lower one. You don't traipse through half of North and Central America to end up in the United States fleeing from "violence'. You were paid, funded by drug cartels to "flee" here with your stupid fake sob story. Whatever the truth is for these people, it doesn't matter. What matters is that they're in the wrong country and have to be sent back to their nation of citizenship. Period.

    That's because their teachers and parents have scared them half to death with their ugly signs, hateful talk, scary protests and horrible lies. They should stop that. It's harmful to the children.

    The President of Mexico can put them in a Safe Zone on their soil. Set up shelters and schools.

    Let this Doctor move down there and take care of them.

    What about OUR children being exposed to their diseases? The overcrowded schools? The hate from these people, the language barrier? The dumming down of our students? The trashed neighborhoods, the graffiti, the gangs they bring with them?

    They are not little angels.

    Send them all back.

    Exactly!! What about the toxic stress of American children living in certain areas of Chicago? What about the toxic stress of American children living in San Bernardino or Orlando or Fort Hood or Boston or New York or Charleston?! What about the toxic stress of American children who are living in cars or homeless shelters because their parents are unemployed and can't pay the bills?

    These pediatricians are an embarrassment to their profession and our country.

    Not only that...but these Doctor's treat these illegals and the illegals do NOT pay!!!

    We are footing the bill for this.

    We are being billed higher premiums, higher co-pays, higher deductibles. We are being charged higher costs for the same services Doctor's provide to PAY for this...then those Doctor's charge our health insurance carrier more money to make up the difference. It is a big shell game.

    What about OUR children who have no insurance? Our families that are paying the penalty because the premium costs are outrages.

    GET 30 MILLION ILLEGALS OFF OUR HEALTH CARE AND OUT OF OUR HOSPITALS. DEPORT THEM ALL.
