The chaotic process of reuniting thousands of migrant children and parents
separated by the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy poses great
psychological risks, both short- and long-term, mental health experts said
on Friday. So does holding those families indefinitely while they await
legal proceedings, which could happen under the president's new executive
order.


The administration has no clear plan to reunite migrant families, which is
sure to carry a psychological price for migrant parents and more than 2,300
children separated from them at the border in recent months. More than 400
are under age 12, and many are toddlers.
