3/1/18 Recent U.S. immigration policy changes are causing significant mental distress for many Hispanic parents in the country, a new study finds.
A “substantial proportion” of Hispanic parents surveyed reported that “they are avoiding authorities, warning their children to change their routines and worrying about the future due to recent U.S. immigration policies and news,” said study lead author Kathleen Roche.
Nearly 40 percent said they often avoided getting medical care, help from police, or support from social services because of immigration actions and news.
