But they are still children in cages, not gangsters, not delinquents. Just children, 900 of them, in a makeshift border-town processing center that is larger than a football field. They pass the day sitting on benches or lying side by side on tiny blue mattresses pressed up against each other on nearly every square inch of the floor in the fenced areas...
...But most of the children lie motionless on side-by-side mattresses with looks of intense boredom on their faces. Inevitably, given the number of people, it smells of feet and sweat and straw, giving it the look and feel of the livestock areas at the State Fair.
Three times a week the children are allowed out of the fenced-in areas to go outside to a concrete playground with a small basketball hoop and benches under a tent where they can congregate...
...The journalists on Wednesday's tour were not allowed to talk to the children, and only one still and one video photographer were allowed to record images.
DHS Myth vs. Fact: Asylum Proclamation and Rule
In the last year we saw 89% of those claiming asylum from the norther triangle pass a credible fear screening. However more than half never applied for asylum after being released or failed to show for their initial hearing. Eventually, only 9% of those who applied for Asylum out of these countries actually qualified before a judge. The bottom line is that a substantial number of applicants fail to appear for their final hearings before an immigration judge, or fail to comply with removal orders. Even when they appear for their hearings, only a very low rate are ultimately granted asylum.

I like AOC, I think she's great!
We know you do. This is why no one takes your asinine posts seriously.
By the same token, Trump supporters' posts should not be taken seriously because Trump says some of the dumbest # ever uttered by a politician.

Really? Can you show me where in the Constitution that foreigners have the right to vote?

I'm always embarrassed and angered when they throw around labels like Nazi, concentration camps etc... If I was a Holocaust survivor I would be beyond mad and calling them out on their BS. How people even listen to or believe this crap is appalling. In school we all learned about the Holocaust atrocities. You can do a quick search and see the pure evil that was inflicted on millions. To even imply that anything like that is going on is sickening. I can't believe they have continued to get away with it.
