Journalists have gone in the Childrens Shelter.....Say its hell, Full of Trump Murals.




I’m a part of the first group of journalists to go into the shelter for detained child migrants in Brownsville Texas since the zero tolerance separation policy was announced. 1000+ boys here.

Going in right now.

Just finished tour, don’t even know where to start.

One of the first things you notice when you walk into the shelter — no joke — a mural of Trump with the quote “sometimes losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.”

Presidential murals everywhere. But that one is 1st.

...............

Moments after we walked in a shelter employee asked us to smile at hundreds of detained migrant kids in line for a meal because “they feel like animals in a cage being looked at.”

.....................
This shelter, Casa Padre, is the largest licensed childcare facility of its kind in the country. Nearly 1,500 boys 10-17 in here now. They’re supposed to sleep four to room. Nearly every room has 5. They’ve received a variance from the state because of overcrowding.

/......................

Kids here get only two hours a day to be outside in fresh air.

One hour of structured time.

One hour of free time.

The rest of the day is spent inside a former Wal Mart.

..............................

Instructions to employees in the lobby of the shelter if you encounter media:

1) “Immediatelt notify PD,” or the police department.

2) Call the shelter communications director.

In that order.

For the record, nobody called cops on us. We were invited by HHS and the shelter.

......................

This mega-shelter is run by trained staff — a nonprofit.

I believe the worker looking after these kids who said she’d like to see a day when they don’t have to do this.

But things are moving in the wrong direction — capacity is 1497 and tonight 1469 boys will sleep here.

.....................

I have been inside a federal prison and county jails.

This place is called a shelter but these kids are incarcerated.

No cells and no cages, and they get to go to classes about American history and watch Moana, but they’re in custody.

Coming up on @allinwithchris next.

..................




They have Trump Murals everywhere......he does think he is Kim Jong Un......This is a concentration camp...or reeducation centre.

At that time, the right wing was yelling "concentration camps" in our future.

94. the kids are at risk not just from pervert or criminal guards

also kids who molest kids. Injuries from fights, bullying, food getting stolen, other kid on kid meanness. The kiddie-jails are understaffed, and not meant to hold permanent populations. A man who just left his employment at a kiddy-jail said the kids coming in thanks to zero tolerance have no clue about the process, and after they are kidnapped from their parents are really upset. So the guards are losing their tempers. (he said it another way,but that is the gist)

I imagine that some of the secret perverts involved in this will see an opportunity for human trafficking and further abuse.

This ill-begotten travesty needs to stop. Now.

"On each landing, opposite the lift-shaft, the poster with the enormous face gazed from the wall. It was one of those pictures which are so contrived that the eyes follow you about when you move. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, the caption beneath it ran."

They may or may not have been terrorists going into Gitmo... but the ones that come out WILL BE and I don't blame them one bit.

If someone picked me off the street of my home country to make a few bucks and then some foreign people shipped me half way around the world to live in a cage (and possibly torture me)... for years... I would want to kill as many of those foreigners as possible if I ever got free.

But the ICC has no jurisdiction here. The US is not a party to the Rome statute. In fact, current Federal law bars any agency, court, or local or state governments from cooperating with the ICC. Further, the US military is required to rescue any personnel that is held by the ICC, by force of necessary. Holdover laws from Bush and the Iraq war.

where the little kids & babies are held.
Are they all crying in the same big walmart sized room?
How many kind caring attendents are there rocking or bathing or changing diapers or holding those babies & little kids.

How many little ones are just left to self-comfort for lack of trained help & an already overwhelmed staff.

Who comforts all the littlest ones now that their mothers or fathers are gone
How many young kids are there & where are they all housed. Are there 100, 300, 1000? Break that number down to age groups.

Are siblings separated also?

They are with strangers—other kids and grownups—that's really hard for children.

My understanding is that they are alone in the sense of not having friends—kids they know—with them.

We are a monstrous country.

We need to be in the street. The ghosts of the internment camps and concentration camps are looking at us and wondering when will be start genuine protests?

62. The girls and the babies are in other centers there are 100 centers.

This is a fancy one run by a non profit. We don't know what the other ones look like or what's going on there.

36. I can only imagine

what they didn't let them see ... Under Trump, we're looking more and more like Russia or North Korea every day.

38. This whole situation is

reprehensible................ Last week I heard a story on NPR about a family from Mexico - A mother, father, and two children. They had lived in a village that was being controlled by a gang. The gang DEMANDED that this family give them a certain amount of money. The family simply did not have it. The gang told them they would be killed (including the kids) if they didn't come up with the money by the next day. So, the family left that night and ended up at one of our borders. The children are now in one of the shelters/detention centers. I don't know where the parents are....

42. The seeds of a future terrorist attack on the U.S. have been planted

That's what'll happen with one of these youngsters because they've been incarcerated for no reason. The hatred towards the U.S. could be fomenting in one of these kids right.now.

54. Can we send the kids black and orange markers to

"redo" the orangutan's murals?

Why couldn't they have painted pleasant scenes instead of their torturer's picture?

Such an ego.

66. "Full of Trump Murals" is a bullshit claim.

Be real. Your OP title should be changed.

To be clear: I never said this shelter was “full of Trump murals.”
There are murals of 20 presidents inside including Obama which we showed on air tonight.
The Trump one happens to be right next to the cafeteria where we entered.

Please correct this, @thedailybeast.

Plus, the link you provided gives no evidence for the place being "full of Trump murals", so not sure why you describe it as legit.

70. He also didn't say "bullshit claim! Be real!"

He simply asked them to correct it because he's not a Trump humper trying to make it look like the whole thing is fake news. He noted the first mural he saw was Trump.

73. It's not a lie. It's a misunderstanding over the number of Trump murals.

So, no. I don't have a problem with it. I'm not trying to downplay Trump's evil, see?

One has to wonder at the agenda, there.

79. As a mother and grandmother

I find this whole pollicy to be sickening. I want to throw up.
I think if my 6 and 8 year old granddaughters were subjected to this kind of thing and I just feel sick.
I've had rightwingers accuse me of being open border and and I say I am pro humanity. Pro child and pro compassion.
My mom was an immigrant from France.
If she was from Mexico, 2018 rather then France in the 50s, I've no doubt we kids would have had a much different upbringing and view of the world.

81. Looks like we know what the closed down Walmarts will be used for.

YouTube has a million videos about how FEMA is making them into camps for American citizens. It's got the right wingers going nuts.
What's going to become of these children? What did they do with their parents? Honestly, if I was seeking asylum from my home country, I wouldn't even bother trying to come here. 😞

83. People who are desperate will risk everything for a better life for their kids.

"if I was seeking asylum from my home country, I wouldn't even bother trying to come here."


Most of us can't even imagine what these asylum seekers have been through.

85. We should find out where all these shelters are and protest constantly outside and make the guards

Lives miserable. Then have church groups go in and take the children in sanctuary. Overtake these modern day internment centers and reunite families.

I hope the Democratic Party uses this in the election reminding people how unjust we were in the Jalnese internment camps in world war 2. This is America we don’t do this anymore and Twitler is evil to do this.

87. One positive about these murals: these kids will certainly know the face of their captor.

Ripping children from their parents and warehousing them in these inhumane, overcrowded prisons really is a crime against humanity. They are concentration camps.

The other presidents' murals are accompanied by quotes about the value of immigrants. Trump's... not so much.
