Christ the kids? I mean the parents, the adults, keeping them in cages is one thing but the freaking kids??


Authorities did not allow photos or videos to be taken inside the centre, but US Customs and Border Protection later released several images. Former First Lady Laura Bush has compared it to the internment camps used for Japanese-Americans during World War Two. A Democratic congressman who visited the site said it was "nothing short of a prison".

The Texas facility is known as Ursula, though immigrants are reportedly calling it La Perrera - dog kennel in Spanish - in reference to the cages used to hold children and adults who have ended up there after crossing the border from Mexico illegally.

"One cage had 20 children inside. Scattered about are bottles of water, bags of chips [crisps] and large foil sheets intended to serve as blankets," the Associated Press reports.

Here's an image released by authorities of one of the cages the adults are being kept in:



The children are completely innocent in all this so why the hell are we allowing authorities to treat them like this? I can't fathom how supporters of these policies can sit with themselves knowing this is happening? These kids shouldn't be exposed to this kind of environment, period. This is completely inhuman and not what we should be about. This isn't of course the first time immigrants have been hearded out into cages like this. Last month some images were released showing immigrants being kept in cages under the Obama administration. The extent of the use of these cages and the numbers, including the seperation of children and parents, has however dramatically increased under the Trump administration. The administration had also approve d this new policy of seperating children from their parents at the border. It's gotten to the point where even Melania Trump (her spokeswoman) sent out a message saying the US should have more heart when it comes to their treatment of immigrants. I can't imagine what those kids would be going through.... I have no kids myself but I can understand the type of burden and fear the parents must be going through right now. This is just deplorable....are we just going to continue to look the otherway and pretend these people are no better than cattle? It gets worse.


A teenager at a US Border Patrol facility in South Texas took care of a young girl for three days after she’d been separated from her aunt.

The 16-year-old taught other children in her cage to change the girl’s diaper.

After attorneys asked questions about the girl’s situation, she was reunited with her aunt.

Nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their parents since Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a “zero tolerance” policy toward border crossings in April.

We shouldn’t care what happens to immigrant children because DNC, Obama, Hillary, Democrats, whatever..

Maybe if those children signed some type of loyalty pledge to Trump we could care.

Average people see a cage, extremists see a secured area.

I'm sure there is no other country on earth that puts illegal immigrants with no paper work in a building to be processed.

Also, is a building considered a cage now? Asking for a friend.

And everybody saw them with catch and release .... with a summons for a court date to make a determination...... which approximately 90% failed to keep. Instead fleeing into US parts unknown.

I think when the secured area is locked to keep you in; Cage is an appropriate description.

I'm buying stock in razor wire and cyclone fencing. The future is now....

An average person knows when the media is spitting out hyperbole for ratings.

You think every country doesn't have immigrant detention centers?

Here ya go

We're the third largest country on the planet, with a very large southern border.

What do you suggest?

Lmao. Most people aren’t so gullible to believe that this rests on anyone except the people who are in power now. Who are directly responsible for it. It’s laughable to blame this on anyone else.

Those are crickets you here, but not for the reason you think.

Some enlightened EU countries sequester them in tent cities at the border. Places that are rampant with unsanitary conditions, inadequate restrooms, unmonitored rape and violence.

Perhaps people think that is better than being housed in a clean facility with A/C, clean and ample restrooms, free legal advice, and telephones to call family members?

I'm pretty sure the world expects us to get them apartments... You know, something we don't even do for our homeless.
