Separated migrant children suffered trauma, claims Govt. watchdog

According to a report released Wednesday by the Department of Health and Human Services, migrant children separated from their parents under the ’zero tolerance’ policy suffered a wide range of mental trauma. In a supporting statement, the Department said it has taken ’reasonable’ steps to address the problems highlighted in the reports.

I do not agree with the impact that is claimed. How do you measure and distinguish the trauma in a child from crossing multiple countries illegally, from that of separating them from the adult they are with? Doesn't seem very scientific to me. If a citizen commits a crime *their* children are absolutely separated from them. Why should a different standard be applied to the non-citizens?
