100 migrant children returned to "inhumane" Texas facility

Source: CBS

Border Patrol on Tuesday returned 100 migrant children to an overcrowded facility in Clint, Texas, which lawyers have recently denounced for its "inhumane" conditions, a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official told CBS News.

The Border Patrol facility, located in the outskirts of El Paso, has come under scrutiny after independent monitors reported learning of unsanitary, crowded living conditions for as many as 350 detained minors.

According to the attorneys who inspected the facility, older children were taking care of the younger ones. Some young mothers had to wear clothes stained with breast milk. The children also did not have access to soap and toothbrushes, and most had not showered since they crossed the southern border.

"It is degrading and inhumane and shouldn't be happening in America," Elora Mukherjee, one of the lawyers told CBS News Monday. "The children had not had access to a single shower or bath, they were wearing the same dirty clothing they crossed the border with."

1. "returned" - The place they took them must have been even worse.

Trump and everyone responsible for this like Mitch McConnell for example.

9. Exactly what I have been thinking.

And with REAL consequences. Enough is enough. Until some of these Russiapublicans pay the ultimate price for their crimes, they will continue to escalate until we are all dead.

They're just moving these kids around to pretend like they're doing something for them. They're just rearranging deck chair on the Titanic.

8. This State Is CRAP Even If You Are Not In PRISON

I would not got to this state if DARED. The people who are in prison are at another level of HELL. This useless state requires federal aid to keep itself from going bankrupt. I pray there is a day when the hellish criminals in government responsible for this mess are sent to their own HELL cell in their HELL state prisons.
