The story at the link above sickens me.  This is what our country has become.  This what we will be remembered for.  Concentration camps turning into death camps.  This is why tRump must be impeached.  These are crimes against humanity.  We need people to know about these conditions.   Letting babies die because of their skin color! Where are the pro-life fanatics?  Please read the article at the link. Hugs

 The kids were unresponsive, feverish and vomiting, yet receiving no medical care, according to lawyers.

The children, all under age 3 with teenage mothers or guardians, were feverish, coughing, vomiting and had diarrhea, immigration attorneys told HuffPost on Friday. Some of the toddlers and infants were refusing to eat or drink. One 2-year-old’s eyes were rolled back in her head, and she was “completely unresponsive” and limp, according to Toby Gialluca, a Florida-based attorney.

She described seeing terror in the children’s eyes.

 

“It’s just a cold, fearful look that you should never see in a child of that age,” Gialluca said. “You look at them and you think, ‘What have you seen?’”

 

Another mother at the same facility had a premature baby, who was “listless” and wrapped in a dirty towel, as HuffPost previously reported.

 

The lawyers feared that if they had not shown up at the facility, the sick kids would have received zero medical attention and potentially died.

  1. I agree this is beyond any ” immigration issue.” Its a humanitarian issue. The arguments in this clip are so ridiculous concerning the conditions at these “detention centers.” I would argue a detention center by any other name is a concentration camp. The entire clip recording is interesting but the highlight starts at 25 mins in. You can fwd to that spot. https://youtu.be/Z2GkDz9yEJA?t=1488

    • Hello Lindi. It disgusts me that the US government is arguing in court for the right to hold children in deplorable conditions that would get a caregiver in any other circumstance charged with abuse. The country that once championed human rights is now demanding the right to hold children in inhumane conditions. Thanks for sending this. Hugs

      • Isn’t it horrible? Downright “deplorable.” How can anyone defend this?

        • Hello Lindi. What people do not understand is fascist nations do not go from democracy to fascist in one step. It happens on a curve based on what people allow to happen. It is a step by step process. Have you heard of the “overton window” The Overton window is a term for the range of ideas tolerated in public discourse, also known as the window of discourse. That is what has happened in the US. We are talking / seeing things that wouldn’t have been tolerated in the past. Hugs

    • Hello Lindi. It is hard to believe some people are OK with this situation. But they are deliberately making things as bad as possible so these people will agree to be deported. How cruel. Hugs
