It is enough to make any decent human being vomit to witness what is happening at the US border with Mexico in Texas, California, Arizona, and New Mexico, where immigrant migrant children are being ripped from the arms and protection of their mothers and fathers by border agents of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), who are acting like Nazi Gestapo agents.
Babies being breastfed by their mothers; wailing toddlers; children of older age; and preteens and teenagers are being effectively incarcerated by order of the racist, nativist government of Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions and others in the Trump regime, in former Walmarts and newly planned “Tent Cities” in the hot summer in Texas, reminding us of former Phoenix Sheriff Joe Arpaio who set up such inhumane conditions, and was pardoned by Donald Trump!
And Jeff Sessions has the gall to quote the Bible in defense of the inhumanity being practiced, and Bible Toters are promoting child abuse, creating emotional damage to children which will last a lifetime, and will likely cause mental trauma that may lead to these children as adults to commit crimes in revenge for their mistreatment.
One can be certain that many parents will never find their children again as record keeping and accountability are not evident, and that there will be many cases of their babies being sold into slavery, and that sexual abuse will occur, including mixing boys of prepubescent and teenage years together, encouraging bullyism and abuse by older against younger.
The horrors of what is going on makes Trump and his government ever more lacking in ethics, morals, common decency, conscience, compassion or empathy!
The so called “family values” claim of the Republican Party is a mockery, and yet we see little reaction by Republican Congressional leaders and those in Texas!
This is a massive violation of human rights that cannot be allowed to stand, as what Trump is doing is against international law, and stains the image of all decent Americans, that we allow such abuses to go on for any amount of time without immediate rectification!
Trump and his cabinet advisers involved in this crime against humanity need to be removed and prosecuted for what they have done to our nation and its people!
This is a perfect example of why we need to vote in November and win back Congress and state and local governments.
I second that. Any politician who is silent about this or worse, endorses it, must be held to account at the ballot box!
Anyone supporting Trump and Sessions and this inhumane policy has no soul!
Another disturbing thing. Trump admin is only showing facilities for older boys. Reeks of propaganda an authoritarian regime would use.
Despicable! An eight-minute audio clip released by ProPublica features a U.S. Border Patrol agent making jokes about an â€œorchestraâ€ of wailing children.
I am beyond myself in anger, and wanting immediate action to end this, by mass marches on DC and in every major city!
We cannot let this stand!
Situation worsens. Democratic senator from Oregon mentioned on Lawrence’s show that border patrol agents are blocking ports of entry for the asylum seekers.
From news reports I’ve heard, the workers at these kiddie prisons aren’t allowed to hug or comfort the kids.
That Stephen Miller guy is the one who came up with this policy.
