The nation’s largest doctors group and an influential science panel today called on the Trump administration to halt its policy of separating migrant children from their families, saying it exacerbates emotional and physical stress and could create long-lasting health effects on children. The American Academy of Pediatrics, American Psychological Association and American College of Physicians have urged the administration to back away from its "zero-tolerance" policy, citing long-term consequences.

“Decades of research have demonstrated that the parent-child relationship and the family environment are at the foundation of children’s well-being and healthy development,” the group said in a statement.
