The practice of removing children from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border, traumatizing the children and their parents, must end.

We are encouraged to hear that President Trump has signed an executive order intended to stop this horrible practice, and we hope that a more lasting, humane solution can be reached. These family separations violate the values and principles on which America was founded and shock the conscience of all who care about children and their futures.

Educators know all-too-well the lasting damage early trauma can do to a child’s mental, physical, social and emotional health.
