Deportation

New Yorker: The Trauma of Facing Deportation - In Sweden, hundreds of refugee children have fallen unconscious after being informed that their families will be expelled from the country. By Rachel Aviv
By 2005, more than four hundred children, most between the ages of eight and fifteen, had fallen into the condition. In the medical journal Acta P√¶diatrica, Bodeg√•rd described the typical patient as “totally passive, immobile, lacks tonus, withdrawn, mute, unable to eat and drink, incontinent and not reacting to physical stimuli or pain.”
