Motivated by Love

November 02, 2023 (1 min read)

Brian Elmore, M.D., reflects on his ER patients suffering injuries caused by border barriers: "The harsh and sterile policies of deterrence also fail to recognize these pilgrims’ most important motivation: love. This family’s love for each other is the potent force that overcame deterrence. Love for their children, a desire to give them the safe life that they deserve, was ultimately what drove this family to embark on their odyssey. Deterrence won’t solve migration—it will only maim and mangle more men, women, and children. It will send more people to my emergency room. Some it will send to the morgue."
