People die of exposure in captivity. Clearly there’s no consideration at all for migrants’ saftey at all. These are concentration camps. They’re meant not to be safe.

Trump and the people that are doing this are monsters. I hope they are convicted for crimes against humanity.

How many of those 8000 are here seeking asylum?

Bear in mind that previously asylum seekers were not detained prior to their hearings.

with all the laws this administration breaks in plain sight, imagine what they do when they are so sure no-one is watching…

(then imagine what he’s going to do with a 2nd term as a confirmation that there is never going to be a penalty)

This is part of what’s so disturbing about moving migrant camps into military bases - no one, including lawyers, are allowed in. There’s literally zero oversight. And given that right now, with oversight, we’ve got people being held in dangerous, abusive conditions (e.g. children kept in vans for days on end), people are dying and things like this are happening…

With this regime, never forget that the cruelty is the point. The Know-Nothing 27% base loves this kind of thing.

Reminder that the deaths within the camps are just the tip of the iceberg. And that this has been going on much longer than just the Trump Presidency.

Those who cause this humanitarian horror show (Drumph) and anyone complicit within it are traitors to our species… And yet I’m sure they all delusionally think they are the best of our species… Just as it was with the Nazi’s, they all think their cause is righteous and history is doomed to repeat itself again and again.

think of the trillions upon trillions of dollars we’ve spent going to war and then trying to nation-build in the middle-east, when instead we should have been investing and building up Mexico and central american economy to stabilize a region right on our border

now it’s all coming to haunt us, there could be a 50/50 chance of death by crossing the border and yet people will still attempt it because things are that bad

just imagine if he gets another four years, there’s still a 40% chance, the tragedy could become larger than many atrocities across history

The majority of these children will live to grow up, and many will have been taught to hate the United States. Trump will be long dead, but there will be a generation of kids, in this country and Latin America, who will make it there life’s mission to treat the US as badly as the US treated them.

They will be convicted, & we will be condemned by history for standing by. Just as when you visit Germany & see a German of a certain age, & wonder what they were doing during the Holocaust.

It’s past time this country settled what to do with refugees that meets basic standards of decency. Climate-wise, we ain’t seen NUTHIN’ yet.
