CCCS supports the National Council on Interpreting in Health Care (NCIHC) which condemns the current U.S. Border policy that has led to the forced separation of approximately 2,000 immigrant children from their parents. As an organization whose mission is to enhance and promote language access in health care, our members – many who are immigrants themselves — work on a daily basis with newcomers. We see the devastating effects these policies have on the health, and the mental health, of all involved, and we stand with our colleagues at the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American College of Physicians, and the American Psychiatric Association in opposition to this practice. We urge you to consider joining us, and offer the following ways in which you can do so:
