Migration of children is probing them to more serious health risks

Under the new administration of Trump, if families and more probably the children are kept in detention facilities which can be as long as 60 days, the flu season will attack the immune system of children. Health experts warn the immigrants and the advocates to get alert on the scene.

The agency of the Department of Homeland Security carried a notion that under the new rule of Trump administration, the families will be kept in the detention centers until their immigration cases are supposed of in the court and provide that the immigration system is humane. The administration is based on the 1997 agreement addressed as the Flores Settlement. The immigration authorities will have to release migrant children within a period from their custody within 20 days. The vice president for Early Childhood Policy, Katie Hamm stated that under the reign of Donald Trump, Mr. President, the harmful effects of the cruel conditions could be seen when the children were held in unsanitary and overcrowded powder without access to basic or civic needs.

In immigration custody, the deaths of seven children are creating havoc in the country. The migrant families in the border under the Trump administration are presenting themselves to asylum. Three out of seven died out of infectious diseases such as flu. The three children in the custody of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, otherwise known as CBP have died.

The agency confirmed that the families detected with flu would be treated on-site by CBP medical personnel. The Trump administration is turning to be a headache for the country and the migrant families living at the border. The families are put into the threat of adverse conditions where they have to witness their children in breathing their last set of life.
