A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that the government must provide mental health services for thousands of migrant families that were separated under the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance policy," The New York Times has reported.
John A. Kronstadt, a U.S. District Court judge in Los Angeles, decided the federal government must immediately provide mental health screenings and treatment to migrant families separated while the policy was in effect.
The Angel Moms, whose children have been killed by illegal aliens, were not happy with his ruling.

Angel Mom Sabine Durden, a legal immigrant, lost her son Dominic after an illegal immigrant with a record of drunk driving crashed into her son's motorcycle. The illegal immigrant only spent about 35 days in jail before being deported back to Guatemala. Durden has become a vocal advocate for victims of illegal-immigrant crime.

Angel Mom Michelle Root lost her daughter Sarah after an illegal alien drunk driving collided with Sarah's car just hours after Sarah attended her college commencement ceremony. Authorities believe the illegal alien was street racing at the time. In response to Tuesday's ruling, the Angel Mom asked, "When will American Citizens be treated better than illegal aliens?"
What about Angel Families permanently separated! My family had to pay for our own counseling, our daughter's funeral & everything else that came with our tragic loss. When will American Citizens be treated better than illegal aliens? ?????? https://t.co/5yD6FdxBP8— Angel Mom Michelle Root (@mroot769) November 7, 2019
"Angry doesn't even cover how I feel right now," Angel Mom Virginia Krieger said after the ruling. Krieger also wondered where the services were for American families who are now separated from their children forever.

Under the "zero-tolerance policy," migrant children were separated from accompanying adults when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) could not determine a familial relationship, when the parent or legal guardian posed a risk to the child, or when the parent or legal guardian was referred for criminal prosecution.
From October 2017 to February 2018, DHS reported a 315 percent increase in the number of cases involving adults using minors to fraudulently pose as family members in order to gain entry into the United States. After mounting pressure, President Trump signed an executive order ending the zero-tolerance policy back in June 2018.
