Children of legally protected immigrants less likely to suffer mental illness

new study shows that immigration relief, such as the DACA program, bestowed upon undocumented parents improves the mental health and well-being of their children. In fact, diagnoses of mental illness in the children of DACA-protected mothers fell by about 50% after the temporary relief came into effect.
