The following excerpt is from a letter sent by the Nursing Community Coalition to the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security.  As an Affiliate Member of the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) which is one of the Coalition Members, the Arizona Organization of Nurse Leaders (AzONL) agrees with and supports the efforts by the nursing community to ensure that the health and wellness of all. 

 

"As a profession, we are committed to the patient, the family, the community, and the populations our members serve. At the core of our education is holistic care that encompasses the physical and mental well-being of all—at any age and in any location. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, it is well documented that when immigrant children are detained and separated from their parents, they can develop toxic stress, which can adversely impact their development.1,2 Nurses are empowered to protect the most vulnerable populations. Children of immigrant families experiencing this stress are the embodiment of those our profession has committed to protect through compassionate and evidence-based care.


Our profession requests immediate action be taken to protect the health of immigrant children and reverse the current policy."
