A federal volunteer who spent two weeks in May at Fort Bliss Army Base in El Paso, Texas, detailed how thousands of migrant children are facing stress and anxiety as they wait to be reunited with their families. Paramedics were called regularly to treat those who suffered from panic attacks so severe, they caused the children’s hands to compress into balls and their bodies to tremble. Other children would develop marks on their arms, which indicated self-harm. The volunteer mentioned the majority of the children spend the entire day sleeping. Some of those children have been at the facility for almost two months. The Associated Press.
