LOS ANGELES — A federal judge has ruled that the government must provide mental health services to thousands of migrant parents and children who experienced psychological harm as a result of the Trump administration’s practice of separating families.

The decision, issued late Tuesday, marks a rare instance of the government being held legally accountable for mental trauma brought about by its policies — in this case, border security measures that locked thousands of migrant parents in detention while their children were placed in government shelters or foster homes.

The article goes on to state the following:

“This is truly groundbreaking,” Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of the University of California Berkeley School of Law, said of the decision. “The court is recognizing that when a government creates a danger that inflicts trauma, the government is responsible for providing a solution. It is not something I have seen a court do before.”

The report further states that “Judge John A. Kronstadt of the United States District Court in Los Angeles ordered the federal government to immediately make available mental health screenings and treatment to thousands of families forcibly separated under the policy, which was primarily carried out in 2017 and 2018.”

    UNBELIEVABLE!! Illegals get benefits Americans can’t, but OUR TAX DOLLARS PAY FOR IT! I wonder how many of these people are actually “family members?” Who wants to bet this is a liberal judge appointed by Obama? This makes me sick, illegals only deserve one thing & that’s to be turned around & sent back where they came from!

    Immigration laws passed by Congress, become wrong when upheld by Trump while last one refused to uphold same law . “ right becomes wrong , truth becomes lies “, and first generation of free Americans took up arms against oppressive government. How is your government doing for you today?
