What actually happens when you physically separate children from their parents

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order ending his administration’s practice of separating migrant families.
It’s unclear what will happen to the families that have already been separated.
When a child is physically separated from their parents they can begin to experience what is known as toxic stress
Toxic stress includes increased heart rate, blood pressure, and stress hormones such as cortisol. 

Since early May, the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy has resulted in the detention of more than 2,000 children, according to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

The policy, which aims at prosecuting illegal border-crossing offenses, applies to all adults whether or not they come with children. Adults that do come with children are being separated, with children placed in temporary care facilities while their parents await prosecution from the Justice Department.  See the rest of the story at Business Insider
