In her pediatrics practice in Winston Salem, North Carolina, Julie Linton

has seen several young patients who she believes are psychologically

suffering from President Donald Trump's tough stance on immigrants.

 

One 9-year-old boy came in with headaches, which Linton said started when

"he was being told in school that his parents would be sent back to their

country of origin." Another patient, a 15-year-old girl, began experiencing

panic attacks in crowds because she feared she would be separated from her

parents.
