This session will provide detailed insight into the treatment of migrant children crossing the US-Mexican border. It will address the legal and humanitarian challenges generated by an unprecedented surge in unaccompanied children and families crossing the border and government policies such as family separation, Covid-related expulsions, and the use of overcrowded border patrol stations and large, emergency shelters. The session will also describe the conditions in detention and review ways the pediatric community can respond.
