         Family Separations At Borders Alarm Child Welfare Experts

The sights and sounds are wrenching: A boy’s cries of “Papa! Papa!” for the father he had been separated from. Youngsters placed in chain-link cages in an old Texas warehouse. Parents begging to know what will happen to their children.

Child welfare has always been a challenging profession; state and local agencies across America make difficult decisions every day to separate children from their parents. But those agencies have ways of minimizing the trauma that aren’t being employed by the Trump administration in separating immigrant families at the Mexican border.  

“There are no principles of good child welfare that are being used in this process,” said Angelo McClain, CEO of the National Association of Social Workers.

POSITION STATEMENT ON UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE

National Association of Social Workers, Mississippi Chapter

Adopted by the Board of Directors on January 20, 2018

The current U.S. health care system is broken.  Despite the advances of the Affordable Care Act, millions of Americans remain uninsured, and many millions more are underinsured, unable to afford the costs and deductibles associated with adequate health care coverage.  Nowhere is the need for system change greater than in Mississippi, the unhealthiest state in the nation.

 
The Mississippi Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers believes that it is time to adopt a publicly financed, federally administered single-payer universal health care program that guarantees health care to all citizens, regardless of ability to pay.  The U.S. system presently spends more on health care per person, yet produces poorer results, than any advanced nation in the world.  Mississippians, along with all U.S. citizens, deserve better.

 

A federally administered single-payer universal program promises multiple advantages over the current system – including administrative simplicity, greater capacity to control costs, more equalized benefits, and enhanced ability to promote prevention over intervention – as well as the most important of all advantages, emphatically prioritizing people over profits.  The time for fundamental reform is now.
