Johns Hopkins professors argue ‘dual loyalty’ compromises health care Johns Hopkins professors argue ‘dual loyalty’ compromises health care in migrant detention facilities

EL PASO — The “dual loyalty” of health-care professionals who work in U.S. immigration detention facilities undermines the quality of care for migrants held there, according to an article by three professors from Johns Hopkins University published Friday in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The professors argue that medical care for those detained under current Trump administration policies that are aimed at deterring migration to the United States create a conflict for doctors and nurses because those policies place the interests of the government over the patients in their care.
