Open Letter to Nielsen and Sessions - By Josh Marshall

By Josh Marshall | June 14, 2018 11:51 am

Before we get caught up in todayís cacophony of news, I wanted to direct your attention to this open letter to DHS Secretary Nielsen and Attorney General Sessions organized by Physicians for Human Rights. Itís signed by a crazy long number of physicians and other experts. But Iím publishing this link to it because it collects together a wealth of clinical evidence for the permanent mental health, cognitive and other damage caused by traumatic events like separation of children from parents. Most of us realize this is morally wrong. Itís wrong in policy terms. We can imagine, because weíre human, the emotional pain involved. But thereís a lot of evidence that these actions do serious and permanent damage to the children who are separated from their parents. Having experienced a very different kind of traumatic event as a child this resonates with me because I know how these events can impact and ramify through the decades of adult life. Hereís the letter.
