It was little over a week ago that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders stood at the podium in the briefing room, refusing to answer pointed questions from Brian Karem, executive editor of Sentinel Newspapers and a CNN political analyst, about the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy that resulted in thousands of children being separated from their parents after crossing the U.S. southern border. “They come to the border with nothing and you throw children in cages.

When the news broke last week that migrant children from Central America are being housed in an old Walmart in Brownsville, Texas, it was just the latest indication that the U.S. is fast turning into some kind of dystopian hellscape.

On Wednesday, the Trump administration, under swelling public pressure, tweaked its zero tolerance policy that separated asylum seekers from their children at the Mexican border. While its cruel ploy of tearing children away from their parents lasted a month and a half or so ― that we know of ― the long-term damage done to those children will endure far longer. Back in 2015, during the surge of unaccompanied children arriving from Central America, I was a clinician in a shelter program funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services.
