As healthcare in this country changes and access/coverage may not be a certainty and vulnerable groups find themselves scared

As healthcare in this country changes and access/coverage may not be a certainty and vulnerable groups find themselves scared, we healthcare providers must remember why we sacrificed so much of our lives in training. Our pledges of beneficence and nonmalfeasance mean something that we must stand behind, not just in the medical care of our patients, but also in their social care. Morality and ethical behavior trumps isolationism.
“Immigrant families are our neighbors, they are part of every community, and they are our patients. The Executive Orders signed today are harmful to immigrant children and families throughout our country. 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. 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.”
