Federal Judge: Trump Admin Must Provide Mental Health Services To Migrant Families


A federal judge in California ruled this week that the government must provide mental health services to migrant families that have undergone trauma as a result of being separated by the Trump administration.

A federal judge in California earlier this week ruled that the Trump administration must provide mental health services to thousands of migrant parents and children separated at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a report.

Judge John Kronstadt of the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles said that under the “state-created danger” doctrine, the federal government is liable for inflicting psychological trauma on those families separated between 2017 and 2018, the New York Times reported.

A group of migrant families filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration in September, arguing that they suffered “life-altering” trauma that would “continue to affect their mental and emotional well-being for years to come.” Several plaintiffs claimed that for months parents were not given clear information about the whereabouts of their children and were unable to communicate with them on a regular basis.

Tuesday’s decision said these services would include mental health screenings, psychological counseling and possibly other forms of long-term treatment. More

Our government did not create this danger. The migrants did by trying to illegally invade our country. These leftist federal judges are the greatest threat to our republic.

What about our veterans returning home with PTSD? How about the citizens of the US that need help and are continually denied these services?

When our homeless vets, American children who have been abandoned and abused get mental health care, then let’s chat about illegals getting the same.
