Doctors Without Borders Comes To Cleveland; Family Separations Could Lead To Lifelong Health Impact

Featured Audio

With the stroke of a pen, President Trump 'halted' a policy of separating familes at the U-S Southern Border.  But in the days before that executive order, an estimated 2,300 children were removed from their parents care.  Efforts to try reuniting those families are just beginning. That has case workers, lawyers and volunteers scrambling to find children sent to shelters that are scattered across the United States. We'll get an update from a PBS correspondent who has been covering the unfolding events at the U.S. - Mexico border.  Plus we'll hear from a local mental health expert on the long-term damage potentially being suffered by the separated children and the parents.  Then, Doctors Without Borders heads to Cleveland to recruit personnel for its global work.
