SHUT DOWN BERKS — AKA: BABY JAIL – PA. U.S.A.!

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 18:51

Thank you for posting this. Either we are a humane people or we are not. This type of treatment for any child to suffer just to get to safety and be vetted. Look I understand the need to check people out. It doesn’t need to take this long, and there is no need to hold mothers and their children in prison or jail like settings. Release them to a willing sponsor and let them show their worth and share their abilities. We live in a country where the NSA knows our emails and our phone conversations. we have cameras on most streets, in businesses and a lot of homes. Heck police can now take a photo and scan for it online, and the internet will show where this picture is. So it is not like we are going to lose these people. Even if a few do slip through the cracks, which is not what they want to do, they are a small number that won’t hurt us. Think of it. Mothers and children in jail. What if it was your mom and you as a child. What if it was your daughter and grandchild. If you have a deity what will that deity say to you when you meet them about this? IF you believe in a progressive world, how is this progressive? Think. Hugs

Candles, birthday cake, presents, friends andfamily. That’s what every parent hopes for their child’s birthday. Instead of festivities, Tomás spent his eighth birthday behind bars—for the second year in a row.
The reason why? Because Tomás and his mom were jailed in the only place in the country where you can hold a child who has never committed a violent crime for over 600 days: Berks County, PA. Tomás and his mom, Natalia, are amongst at least 60 other moms, dads, and children who were locked up after seeking safety here, though they fled from violence in their home countries.
A fair shot never happened for Tomás, whose real name we’re withholding for his safety. After hundreds of days behind bars—where he suffered PTSD and his weight shrank to just 40 pounds—he and his mother were deported without ever…

    • Hello Echo. You are correct. They are in immigration holding detention centers. Think prisons for immigrants. in those situation women, children, teens get assaulted and raped often. Oversight is lax, accommodations horrible. There are ways you can help. You can sign petitions, you can help groups who help the immigrants. Every little bit helps. it is on going right now and they do need our help. Hugs
