READ ME. The US Government has allegedly paid, @SouthwestKey Programs Inc, ~$1.4 Billion dollars for outsourcing the detention of children; children primarily taken from their parents due to immigration status.

Trump administration.

I agree with the blame landing on Trump and his Gestapo ICE force, I suggest taking a deeper look into Southwest Key and understand how the children are being treated once they are received. Southwest runs the center in Brownsville (in the news).

Why are they in the spotlight? If you haven't read the news lately, I recommend you take a moment to do so.

This will chill you to the bone, but this is what is sounds like. If you choose to listen to it and don't have empathy for these kids, I don't know what to do for you.

Kudos @ProPublica
