36. Comparison pricing

Compared to $750 to have children sleep on the concrete floors, without blankets or soap or showers or clean clothes, I did a little checking and Trivago tells me there are hundreds of places that would put up the kids (and also adults) for as little as $195 a night - and provide them with a bed, with clean sheets and blankets, a shower and soap, and even access to a laundrette to clean their clothes.

Of course, the Federal Prison in Texas would also provide inmates - most, unlike these kids, have committed dreadful crimes - with a bed and blanket, access to shower and soap and also laundry service.

Going back 80 years, the Nazi slave labor camps provided inmates with regular changes of clothes and access to washing up; the Nazis were very attentive to personal hygiene.
