Statement on recent harmful policy developments

Consistent with our longstanding values and mission, Children’s HealthWatch remains committed to improving the health and well-being of young children and their families in the United States regardless of immigration status, country of origin, or religion. This statement reflects our deep concerns about the Executive Orders regarding immigration to the US and immigrants’ status in our society.
As scientists, we have an obligation to document what is happening to children. Independent monitoring systems are critical for the people of the United States to provide credible facts for use in holding our leaders accountable for results of their policy actions.
