Cruelty, Inc

You will have heard the news: on Monday, June 24th, Customs and Border officers removed a couple of hundred children from a filthy, overcrowded “detention center” on the Mexico border.

Come Tuesday, June 25th, 127 of those same children were returned to that same detention center, a place called “inhumane” by lawyers who had seen it.

A doctor called in to treat a flu outbreak at another facility in McAllen, Texas describes “extreme cold temperatures, lights on 24 hours a day, no adequate access to medical care, basic sanitation, water, or adequate food.”

The conditions meet the United Nations definition of torture.

In an almost-certainly related development (given these horrifying stories), the acting head of US Customs and Border Protection, has resigned.

If these migrant children were dogs, the people responsible for mistreating them would be universally condemned. You and I and everyone else would demand that government put a stop to the cruelty and punish the perpetrators.
