The Associated Press is reporting that about 250 infants, children & teenagers have been locked up for up to 27 days without enough food, water & sanitation at a concentration camp near El Paso, Texas. They report that a sick 2-year-old boy was being treated by three girls ages 10 to 15 because no one was attending to his care. Children are being fed uncooked frozen food or rice & gone weeks without bathing or clean clothes. One attorney said, “In my 22 years of doing visits with children in detention I have never heard of this level of inhumanity.”
We can express outrage till the cows come home but until we start to clamor & organize protests, this will continue. And then they will come for us.
