In a new report published by Physicians for Human Rights (PHR), a nonprofit of medical professionals who investigate human rights abuses, physicians found that family separation at the border rises to the level of torture. As of December 2019, at least 1,100 children have been taken and forced into dangerous and inadequate facilitates where they are subjected to sleep on mats on cold floors, care for younger children, and suffered well-documented cases of sexual abuse. Tell Congress to reunite families immediately and end family separation for good!
