A chaotic scene of sickness and filth is unfolding in an overcrowded border station in Clint, Tex., where hundreds of young people who have recently crossed the border are being held, according to lawyers who visited the facility this week. Some of the children have been there for nearly a month.New York Times
Children as young as 7 and 8, many of them wearing clothes caked with snot and tears, are caring for infants they’ve just met, the lawyers said. Toddlers without diapers are relieving themselves in their pants. Teenage mothers are wearing clothes stained with breast milk.
Most of the young detainees have not been able to shower or wash their clothes since they arrived at the facility, those who visited said. They have no access to toothbrushes, toothpaste or soap.
How does a person get up every morning and go to work in this facility? It is beyond my ability to even understand. How do they justify this to themselves? How do they explain their participation in this atrocity. Just to their wife, their children?
What I want to know. Who are these criminals, we need names, we need perp walks, right down to those who went to work everyday with total indifference. This is not a time for political posturing from presidential wannabes. This a time when all Americans should stand up and say put these bastards in jail.
It is time for the press to start naming names from the top to the ones who went in everyday and silently tolerated this abuse. Stand in front of their doors with cameras running, microphones in their faces. Shine the light on them. From the big boss right down the lowliest cockroach. Treat them like the perverts they are.
In less than 10 days it will the 4th of July the anniversary of the founding of this country. A time where a group of men pledged their lives and sacred honor to create some thing better than what they knew back in Europe.
This is the God! Damn! United States of America!
How dare you assholes do this in our names!
