Separated migrant children are headed toward shelters that have a history of abuse and neglect

Read this article...it is truly horrifying.We are sending kids to monsters who will rape them, drug them and beat them.


"Homes with worst issues keep getting grants
A case in point is the Shiloh Treatment Center, a mobile home complex-turned-child care center. Located in rural Manvel, Texas, the center was founded in 1995 by Clay Dean Hill, who is now 69. In 2013, the resettlement agency began funding the shelter, sending more than $25 million in grants over five years.

In 2001, Stephanie Duffield, 16, died after being restrained by staff. Following her death, Shiloh was found to be “in compliance” with state requirements, according to the refugee resettlement office. Since then, Shiloh has been dogged by allegations of child abuse, leading Brazoria County’s district attorney, Jeri Yenne, to call for increased monitoring of the shelter.

Children have died at two other programs affiliated with Hill, Behavior Training Research Inc. and Daystar Residential Inc. Between 1993 and 2010, three children died after being restrained at those facilities. In 2002, Latasha Bush, 15, died from asphyxia. Eight years later, Michael Keith Owens, 16, died after being restrained inside a closet. Both were ruled homicides.

Daystar closed after Owens’ death. Behavior Training Research remains registered as an active domestic for-profit corporation.

Over the last three years, Texas inspectors found eight deficiencies at Shiloh, including poorly supervised medication inside the facility and overdue background check renewals for staff."

Gov. Cuomo says that the EA from Trump is bullshit...he says it can't be implemented because of the

law about incarcerating kids with parents...and it says nothing about the kids already taken...so those who said it was bullshit were right.

Thank you Democrats! Trump is ending his policy of kidnapping children and holding them for hostage

because of you. You stood firm and refused to yield to blackmail. He couldn't get his shitty bill through.Chuck and Nancy Thanks! Thank you CNN, MSNBC and all media who reported honestly on this story,you have saved children's lives. Thank you Rachel and Stephanie, you allowed your true sorrow and horror to show...and it was a powerful thing to see. Of course all of us who called and called should give ourselves a pat on the back. Once again we prove the power of a unity of purpose.

I see "Democrats are to blame also" replies for the horrible Trump child separation policies. RESIST

Folks with mostly low counts are posting such nonsense. It seems to me some are trying to get us to fight each other not the evil Republicans who started this heinous policy. Don't let them! I have to go out ...not a hit and run, but I felt the need to post this now. I will reply to any and all responses when I get back...have a great morning! Resist Resist Resist!

Trump takes kids away from parents...some trapped at border literally in cages...

no place...1000 other in Walmart building...God knows under what conditions....those where there is no room for them...to shipped to military bases...I guess they will be put in prison there... disgusting...call call congress . This is intolerable.

CEO non-profit center who called police on Sen. trying to visit detained kids makes 770,866 a year.

"Critics are questioning why the CEO of a Texas nonprofit children's shelter that called police on Democratic Senator Jeff Merkley for trying to enter the facility, where detained immigrant children are held, is being paid as much as $770,860 a year.

The Southwest Key Programs (SKP) center in Brownsville, Texas, which receives state funding and houses undocumented children in cooperation with the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement's (ORR) unaccompanied minors program, has come under the spotlight after Merkley shared video online of shelter staff barring him from entering the facility, and calling the police on him
Merkley said "hundreds" of children were being housed at SKP's Brownsville location,many being minors separated from their families under a new "zero tolerance" policy announced last month that sees parents who arrive in the U.S. illegally separated from their children and taken to jail, while their young ones are sent to ORR shelters."

I learned later the CFO makes over $500,000

Lot of description...and the Senator claims some kids are being held in cages at one or more facilities.



Actual video...

Rob Portman comes out against ripping kids out of the arms of parents as do other GOP types...

so for those who claim this story should be ignored...you are wrong. This was on the Andrea Mitchell report today.


Poll : What should our response be to Trump's policy of ripping undocumented children from their parents arms?
