NCIHC's Response to "Zero Tolerance" Border Policy
Some may feel that this is a political issue and far removed from interpreting in healthcare. But these are our patients and the interpreter's code of Ethics includes "When the patient's health, well-being, or dignity is at risk, the interpreter may be justified in acting as an advocate." We feel justified in our choice to speak out in protest based on the health, well-being and dignity of these children and their parents, and on the inhumanity of these acts
We urge you to consider joining us, and offer the following ways in which you can do so.
