Trump team reaches new 'level of inhumanity' serving jailed kids uncooked frozen food

Lawyers say children are locked up without adequate food and water, and go weeks without bathing.


Lawyers representing children locked up by the Trump administration described "a traumatic and dangerous" situation at a detention facility near the U.S.-Mexico border, the Associated Pressreported Thursday.

Lawyers said up to 250 infants, children, and teenagers are being held in unsanitary and horrific conditions and are being fed uncooked frozen food or rice. Some had gone weeks without a bath or access to clean, dry clothes.

In once case, lawyers saw a "2-year-old boy, he wasn't wearing a diaper and had wet his pants, and his shirt was smeared in mucus." The toddler was being cared for by three children, aged 10 to 15, who took turns looking after him because no one else was there to do it.

"In my 22 years of doing visits with children in detention I have never heard of this level of inhumanity," Holly Cooper, an attorney representing detained youth, told the AP. "Seeing our country at this crucible moment where we have forsaken children and failed to see them as human is hopefully a wake up for this country to move toward change."

Lawyers encountered these conditions even though Border Patrol agents knew they would be inspecting the facility three weeks prior to their visit.

This latest report, based on lawyers' interviews with 60 of the children held at this detention center, reflects the pattern of abhorrent policies aimed at migrant children.

Border patrol agents are taking medicine away from children. Children are sleeping on dirt and rocks. The Trump administration kept a database to track the menstrual cycle of young girls. More than a dozen infants were locked up in unsanitary conditions. Half a dozen children have died in federal custody. Trump appointees contemplated housing children on top of a toxic waste dump, and Trump officials plan to stop providing education and playtime for kids they locked up.

Trump administration lawyers recently argued in federal court that jailed children don't even need soap or toothbrushes.

Trump never hid his racist feeling toward non-white immigrants during his 2016 campaign, and his policies since entering the White House are a reflection of his anti-immigrant animus.

Trump may have managed to hit a new level of inhumanity this time, but he shows no signs he will "wake up" or "move toward change."

Instead, he is ratcheting up the cruelty, announcing his plan to detain and deport millions of immigrants in the near future, ensuring that his abject cruelty toward immigrants — and especially immigrant children — will be his legacy.

Wow...   so horrible.   But there are two minor issues one needs to consider.

First, they didn't have to come here.  Stay where they came from, it IS an option.

Second, this entire bullshit hit piece by "Shareblue" media is nothing.  There are many accusation's, but NO EVIDENCE.  And "hearsay" evidence is no evidence at all.

By the way, this is "shareblue":

You are not willing to call your congressperson and demand they finally address this crisis, so why complain?

Border states are largely left to deal with this issue while blue states bitch piss and moan about sharing any responsibility for this problem.

Vote for open borders? Refuse to secure the border and fix the migrant crisis? You are part of the problem not the solution. Own it.

Are you claiming that these places would let people take pictures?  The few pictures that have made it out show children sleeping on concrete floors inside cages.  The internment locations even refuse access to Congressmen from that location.

Yes, lots of pictures.  And no detail as to when the picture was taken. This is why I asked if you had a link to new verifiable pictures as a lot of the pictures that have been used by MSM were already proven false.

If  you do not have any verifiable information about current pictures then I guess thanks for the non-reply. What is happening on the border is a terrible thing and I wish that the powers in charge would fix this. But I'm not going to get up in arms based on pictures that cannot prove they are legimate.

In your link I see pictures of adults in terrible conditions but nowhere do I find any confirmation that the pictures are actually what they state they are. No,  I do not trust MSM,  thought I had made that clear.

Getting back to Ozzwald's post where I asked if he had a new link,  he had been talking about children sleeping on the floor in cages. As the last time that image was used, it turned out the pictures were from the Obama era and were not current. So yes, I'm hesitant to believe something put out on the internet by MSM.

We have been giving care to both citizens AND illegals for decades on a weekly basis. I have even gone out into the harvest fields to give water, food, and vitamins to illegals. Supervisors would let them stop for a break so we could care for them

I have had illegals as members of churches I’ve pastored. I have taken a couple into my home who were illegals and got them the medical care they needed (kidney dialysis) i was at the woman’s side in the hospital, and I was asked by the family to conduct her funeral service.

what you on the left can’t seem to comprehend is carrying out voluntary Christian compassion while supporting the need for the rule of law

By the way, this is "shareblue":

Further:

These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation.  They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy.
  • Overall, we rate Shareblue strongly Left Biased based on story selection that always favors the Left and Mixed for factual reporting due to misleading headlines and a failed fact check by an IFCN fact checker.

Nearly 900 migrants found at Texas facility with 125-person capacity: DHS watchdog

WATCHJudge blocks Trump's administration from using military funds for the border wall

In a report out Friday, the Homeland Security inspector general has found “dangerous overcrowding” and unsanitary conditions at a Customs and Border Protection facility in El Paso, Texas, where hundreds more migrants were being housed than the center was designed to hold.

“Border Patrol agents told us some of the detainees had been held in standing-room-only conditions for days or weeks,” the office of inspector general wrote.

The El Paso Del Norte Processing center housed as many as 900 migrant detainees earlier this month and, the report also found, the facility only has the capacity for 125. CNN first broke the news.

The findings come as border patrol continues to grapple with record levels of migrant families crossing the southern border with hundreds crossing between ports of entry each day. Agents on Thursday apprehended a group of more than 1,000 migrants who crossed illegally in El Paso.

While Immigration and Customs Enforcement is responsible for handling long-term detainees, Border Patrol officials interviewed by the inspector general said their requests for detention space get denied in some cases. There are 80,000 people in immigration custody, according to acting Homeland Secretary Kevin McAleenan.

The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, Democrat Bennie Thompson, responded to the report saying ICE struggles with capacity issues because they detain too many non-criminals and said authorities should have been prepared.

"U.S. Customs and Border Protection management has known for months to expect a higher-than-usual number of migrant families coming to our border to seek asylum – yet has done nothing to prioritize adequate, safe, and humane temporary holding facilities for those migrants, Thompson said in a statement.

"CBP was struggling to maintain hygienic conditions in the holding cells. With limited access to showers and clean clothing, detainees were wearing soiled clothing for days or weeks," the report said.

The inspector general recommended CBP take “immediate steps” in response to the findings.

The agency detailed actions it plans to take to mitigate overcrowding, including releasing family units with orders to appear to complete the immigration process.

CBP plans to open another temporary holding facility in the El Paso area later this summer. A higher capacity central processing center is scheduled to be open in the next 18 months, according to CBP.

What are you doing about it? 

The polling shows massive support for securing the border and immigration reform. I guess Democrats want to get their ass handed to them again in 2020 by the Trumpanzee.

Trump told them all to come here en masse? Trump is telling congress not to fund expansion and improved detention centers? Trump is telling the Democrats to cap the number beds at detention centers, to get quicker catch and release turn times? Trump is telling Congress to not fund more judges for immigration?  Trump is telling the Dems to block all funding for improved border security?

TDDS is truly a disease to be reckoned with.

Go for it. 

Nah, just load them all up and ship them off to the all of the sanctuary cities.  I hear Detroit is lovely this time of year. A few weeks there and they will be begging to be shipped home.

The turd and the other turd did indeed create the crisis and now they're attempting to fix it because of the crisis they created.  If they didn't create the crisis in the first place then we wouldn't be in this current situation of the deplorable conditions these migrants have been forced into.  

'Separations did occur under the Obama administration. But in April 2018, it was the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy that led to thousands of forced separations. That policy forced immigration officials to criminally prosecute all migrants apprehended at the border, not just those with criminal backgrounds.

The president eventually passed an executive order ending family separations last June. But the government has admitted it could take years to identify the thousands of children separated from their parents.'

That's insane. The president has consistently told people not to come. He has consistently tried to erect physical barriers to block them from coming. If it were up to Trump, there would be zero people entering the country illegally or trying to enter with their bogus asylum claims and this crisis would not exist at all. 

I'll say it again. Claiming that Trump created this crisis is insane.

A researcher told "CBS This Morning" that at the Clint facility, about 20 miles southeast of El Paso, more than a dozen children had the flu, and that some were in quarantine cells without adult supervision. The researcher added that young girls were taking care of a sick two-year-old boy who was in filthy clothing without a diaper, and that the children said they were fed uncooked frozen food and had gone weeks without bathing. CBS News reached out to immigration officials, and has not yet heard back.

Apprehensions in the El Paso border area have spiked more than 600% since last year. In May, the Office of the Inspector General pointed to dangerous overcrowding at the El Paso facility, showing migrants packed into holding cells. 

According to current rules, children should only be held by Border Patrol for 72 hours before they're transferred to Health and Human Services. But advocates say that children are being held for longer, and that they're just being transferred between detention facilities to comply with the guidelines. 

In an interview with the Spanish language network Telemundo, President Trump was asked about child separations and his administration's zero tolerance border policy.

"When I became president, President Obama had a separation policy. I didn't have it, he had it. I brought families together," Mr. Trump said, adding "I inherited separation. Obama built the cages. I didn't build them. Obama built the cages. That's number one. Obama separated. I'm the one that did a presidential order bringing the parents together." 

Separations did occur under the Obama administration. But in April 2018, it was the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy that led to thousands of forced separations. That policy forced immigration officials to criminally prosecute all migrants apprehended at the border, not just those with criminal backgrounds.

The president eventually passed an executive order ending family separations last June. But the government has admitted it could take years to identify the thousands of children separated from their parents.

Trump Team Reaches New 'Level Of Inhumanity' Serving Jailed Kids Uncooked Frozen Food

Trump can spend nearly 100 million tax payer dollars a year on fucking golf, but can't come up with enough cash to feed starving children? What a POS.
