PHOENIX (AP) — Staff members at a Phoenix-area shelter for unaccompanied migrant children physically abused three children, leading to the closure of the shelter, federal officials said. It was the latest in a series of incidents of alleged abuse involving staff members at shelters and children.

Southwest Key’s Hacienda del Sol shelter was shut down last Friday, but federal officials did not reveal the reason behind the closure until Tuesday.

The Texas-based federal contractor has fired the staffers involved in the Sept. 18 incident, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement.

1. This abuse of children by the United States of America is infuriating.

It's no wonder tRump pulled us out of the International Criminal Court. I expect to see him and Kirstin Nielsen before that court in the future. Children are the future of the world, and we are destroying that future.
