Article There Is a Stench': Soiled Clothes and No Baths for Migrant Children at a Texas Center

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/21/us/migrant-children-border-soap.html

snip of article

A chaotic scene of sickness and filth is unfolding in an overcrowded border station in Clint, Tex., where hundreds of young people who have recently crossed the border are being held, according to lawyers who visited the facility this week. Some of the children have been there for nearly a month.

Children as young as 7 and 8, many of them wearing clothes caked with snot and tears, are caring for infants they’ve just met, the lawyers said. Toddlers without diapers are relieving themselves in their pants. Teenage mothers are wearing clothes stained with breast milk.

Most of the young detainees have not been able to shower or wash their clothes since they arrived at the facility, those who visited said. They have no access to toothbrushes, toothpaste or soap.



This is horrible. These migrants do not need to be treated like animals. tRump and Miller need to be in cages themselves this is crimes against humanity. This must be in the psyche of all Americans, this is on us. When is enough enough.

2. Here's a link to an excellent thread that outlines what we all can do.

I've signed up with one organization RAICES and hope to make a difference that way. There are other links too.

9. If I may suggest....


Raices , the group who works with immigrants, and is fighting for the kids, needs donations.
they are also helping the incarcerated parents.
The raices group in Texas is on the front line, esp. with that horrible kid's camp there.

5. We have the stench of the drumpf administration.

It stinks like hell. No human should treat another human with so much disdain and cruelty. This is happening on American soil and executed by drumpf's government.

6. What is going on with this F-ing Trump administration?

I can't believe the two top leaders of America can sit there and dance around the question of whether we can get some toothbrushes to these kids.

As far as sources go, it doesn't get any higher than coming from the president and the vice president. This is not fake news, folks! There are videos of Pence and Trump hemming and hawing at the question of providing toothbrushes to kids they are detaining!!!!!!


Sorry Trump and Pence, it's Not Congresses' fault! It's the Trump administration! You started an awful thing and you own it. How is it Congresses' fault for not wanting to fund it for you? For God's sake prisoners in jail get soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes!

8. When we take back power, there WILL be trials.

These people who have ridden roughshod over the law and shed all morality like snakeskins MUST be held accountable. There have to be arrests and trials in an international tribunal. Because these are crimes against humanity.
