It is hard to believe that in recent days we have heard our own federal government argue in court that toothbrushes and soap were not necessary provisions for detained children. How can we allow this to be done by our government, in our name?
We cannot accept that children are left unbathed, without changes of clothing, in unsanitary facilities, sleeping on concrete without beds and sometimes without room to lie down, no diapers for toddlers, and sick children being left to care for other sick children.
We've seen one chapter after another of atrocities intentionally perpetrated on vulnerable people: family separation, loss of children in custody, two dozen deaths in ICE custody since 2017, children in cages, living under bridges in extreme temps, brutalized and underfed.
Now we hear plans of raids to target families -- that’s right, families, not criminals -- who have fled situations of danger from gang violence, drug trafficking, and economic desperation.
Supposedly these policies are considered deterrents, but are being implemented in cruel and inhumane manners by people who do not understand the conditions which these migrants are fleeing nor what they have faced on their journey here.
