The Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy has been horrifying.
More than 2,300 children have been separated from their parents at the border — and people across the nation are outraged. The widespread response raised more than $18 million to aid separated families and even forced President Donald Trump to sign an executive order to detain families together rather than separately.
Progress is being made, but the trauma these children have undergone will have dangerous long-term consequences.
The path to reunification for these children is fraught with uncertainty. And no executive order can undo the trauma these children are experiencing right now.
