Infectious diseases and detention centers.

The Guatemalan boy who died presumably had the flu. His father now says he was not ill before being put in a detention center.

The children being held - about 14 thousand of them - have not been vaccinated for the flu and other infectious diseases. Overall, they are not receiving comprehensive medical assessments to determine if they need nutritional support, medical treatment and vaccinations.

I make these statements after researching and being unable to find proof that these children are receiving the care they deserve to protect their lives. What I've found points to the opposite.

All it takes is one worker to expose them to diseases for which they have no protection - like the flu, measles, and tuberculosis. Not to mention parasites like scabies and bedbugs. Living conditions are horrific.

Where is the CDC? Where is the outrage? Why is the United States of America treating precious little children worse than animals?
