UN Human Rights commissioner regarding US immigration policies:

"The thought that any State would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable."

The @UNHumanRights spoke out early last year about Session, republican GOP and Trump's inhumane policy of separating families..
The Trump administration stopped cooperating with UN investigations into human rights violations in America…
Also : This is incredibly important.

The UN Human Rights Council is discussing the United States concerning our extreme poverty and Trump's policies toward the poor.

Not some 3rd World Country.

The United States of America.

Missing migrant children are being funnelled to a Christian adoption agency tied to the Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos

Block out all the nonsense you’ve heard

This journalist gets it.

@SenJeffMerkley Senator Merkley:
Trump admin planning internment camps for detained immigrant families.
Sept 2018 #Maddow #FEMA @DHSgov transferring 10 MILLION Dollars of #HurricaneMaria recovery funds to #ChildrenInCages #ICE Detention programs - JUST as Hurricane Season is in full swing. @SenJeffMerkley exposes this!
The entire nation is crying with Rachel #Maddow. How can the United States of America have internment camps designed for babies? What ICE agent has the ability to rip a baby from a mom’s begging, outstretched arms? BABIES??? #immigrants #AsylumSeekers
On the day @nikkihaley & Trump pulled us out of the UN Human Rights Council, Cal Perry is reporting GOP have set up concentration camps for children and a "tender age" shelter for babies/toddlers taken from their parents.
Sept 2018 @Lawrence #Maddow
I should note that @fema is lying. The document @SenJeffMerkley gave to @maddow indicates that one of the areas from which the nearly $10 million was deducted for immigrant concentration camps includes “Response and Recovery.” More than $2.3 million of it.

Dec 2018 @SenJeffMerkley Right now, the United States is locking up 14,000 children in child prison camps across America. We CANNOT forget these children. This is a broken system that must be fixed.
A child reunited w her mom after being separated at the border. The mother raining tears while her daughter looks dazed, emotionless. The United States is operating concentration camps for children.😭
