To date:


2053 children have been separated from parents.



Our government has no idea which kids belong with which parents. There is no plan to reunite families.

disbelief I think there are more. The numbers they keep using only go to June 9, from what they told us. CBS this morning - they had no plan when they started No Tolerance. And they confirmed this -

They started deporting some of the adults but their children are still being detained? WTH. Give them their kids back.





They are asking for 2 more tent detention centers on Texas military bases. You know, the ones that cost $775.00 per person per night. We could send every kid to college for that. Private contractors are RAKING IT IN. Follow the $$.


Yes poppy. You hit it right on the nose. Profiting from these babies just like our prison system, and trump is approving this. He is basically kidnapping those kids by refusing to return them to their parents, and sending the parents back without their kids. He is doing this horrible tactic to appease his base to show he is tough on immigration. He basically approved stealing children from other countries and holding them hostage. How is it that he could get away with doing this, without other countries not seeing this as a crime? Like I said from the start this immigration issue is about the fear of the browning of America. But no matter how much trump and a specific segment of his supporters think the immigration issue or the wall will prevent America from turning brown, it will not. It is already happening and will continue.

I really think trump, his administration and a specific portion of trumps’ supporters want the days of slavery back. I doubt seriously that today’s Black and Brown population will lay down and allow that to happen. What all this is going to do is bring the Black and Brown together and stronger at the voting booth, because now many non-Black minorities are finally realizing America’s racism is not just towards Blacks, but towards many people of color in this country.

no, that is a fact, if they were actually in danger then why not seek it in Mexico? If Mexico is a good country they would be happy to take them no?





That brings up the question, of what is wrong/what is happening in these other countries.


.


There is a gray area of discussion that needs to be had. Like people who are pro abortion vs pro life, well what about pro prevention, that will handle both sides.


.
Mexico and these Central American countries need to be made accountable.



And The United States should be made accountable for their complicity in the problems in these Central American countries. History can be very inconvenient for your average self righteous, unaware, selfish, "christian" American. Sad but true.


Absolutely. clapping

Yep. These people and especially their children are Political Prisoners. They separated a 3 yr old whose grandmother was legally applying for asylum. She had full legal guardianship papers (raised the child) which were ignored. They don't know where she is.

Even after Katrina when Latinos came to work the disaster, wearing hazmat suits (or not), cleaning stuff NO ONE else would, we had blowback. One politician said - How does taco help gumbo? Face Palm. Thankfully, he went to jail for embezzling money after that - many do here, indiscriminately. And here's the kicker, he was not white either. Just an asshole politician trying to divide people who lost so much already.

And hopefully White Women. You know, the ones who bore children and have grandchildren... Why are they not held accountable for this Trump travesty? I am ashamed to be one. I live in a majority black city. Why would I want to discount/not include - my neighbors? WW's are the voter third rail and they need to stop getting/giving themselves a pass.

nod Blame the victim instead of the violence being done to them.


And now OrangeTrash is trying to make immigration itself illegal by abolishing due process before a judge, treating those arriving as criminals and shipping them back immediately.

Yup - The language in that tweet was disgusting. Expected, but vile nonetheless.

Yes it’s sad. He doesn’t even respect many White women. Not sure why so many voted for him.Did they fall for his false charisma? Were they intrigued the he is wealthy and had a reality show? They should have done their research.

I can't understand it. Makes me really uncomfortable. They must love living in white enclaves (thanks Jim Crow). Another great white idea that has perpetuated racial division for an extra 100+ years. Guess they expect their children to do the same. That's not reality. That has never been reality. They are betting on the wrong horse. The future population is not whiter whites, ladies.

They saw Trump as the one who would preserve "White Privilege" for them and their family. Obviously that was more important than seeing a woman advance in society

thumbs up! I've read a couple of things from CA that were good. Nathan J. Robinson's critique of Lobster Boy was excellent - the most effective of the ones I've read - and he followed it up with another smart article on how to engage with such people. (Although, I have to say, that the article Robinson slates, and a follow-up interview about it, were quite revealing in attesting to Jordy's more loony, messianic side.)

Any other articles particularly worth a read?

Federal Judge in California Halts Splitting of Migrant Families at Border


WASHINGTON — A federal judge in California issued a nationwide injunction late Tuesday temporarily stopping the Trump administration from separating children from their parents at the border and ordered that all families already separated be reunited within 30 days.

Judge Dana M. Sabraw of the Federal District Court in San Diego said children under 5 must be reunited with their parents within 14 days, and he ordered that all children must be allowed to talk to their parents within 10 days.

“The unfortunate reality is that under the present system, migrant children are not accounted for with the same efficiency and accuracy as property,” the judge wrote.

Judge Sabraw’s order, which is likely to prompt a high-profile legal battle with the Justice Department, came on the same day that President Trump won a landmark legal victory when the Supreme Court upheld his travel ban, ending a 17-month legal fight.

That’s exactly what I wondered about, when they wouldn’t allow anyone from the media in, especially to see and find out where the girls were. I wondered if they were giving them some kind of drugs. This country has a bad and long history of using people of color as guinea pigs.

Exactly. That’s why he uses the race card, and use Mexican immigrants, legal or illegal, as bait to blame them for crime in America, which is a bs lie. It’s his alarm for his white supporters to create fear in them, and lie to them about their opportunities being stolen by immigrants of color. His immigration issue is to keep more ’Brown and Black’ out of America. He wants the racial division to keep America more White. Many of his White supporters fell for his message, yet are being bamboozled, because no wall will keep America from becoming more Brown, no matter what s trump feeds them. He is feeding his supporters his own insecurities and fear of losing white privilege, that for so long has benefitted many within the White population.

This whle immigation stunt is so harmful and not even effective. The census shows that the population is growing more for minorities (Hispanic, Asian, Black) than caucasians in this country. The minorities WILL be the majority - it *is* happening!

Let’s hope they didn’t put anything in the food those girls and boys were eating. Trump’s administration is known for lying to the American people, and they have no regard nor do they give a damn about how they are affecting, the mental state of those children, because they come from Brown countries. Let’s not forget what happened to many Native Americans on their own land, when many early, European immigrants came over here, and some within that population did whatever they could to get rid of Native Americans and disrepected their culture/way of life.

Exactly, and this was predicted since the 80s. It is inevitable. This is why it is clear, how clueless many of trump’s white nationalist supporters and his other supporters involved with racist groups are. Trump used the race card as his fear tactic to draw in white voters, who are hoping he can turn the country majority white. He knew exactly what part of that base he could con. He made them believe Brown and Black immigrants are stealing their jobs and opportunities, and that those coming from Mexico are all criminals, and that is the reason, he tells them
he needs to build a wall. Truth is, a wall will not stop America from turning Brown. Let’s face it.. trump and many republicans/conservatives, supporters fear the growth of the Latino population in America.

On another note, for a different thread, if he appoints a conservative to replace Kennedy, which more than likely he will, be prepared that Roe v Wade may be overturned. It’s not surprising that what’s behind the pro-life movement in America is about trying to increase White births and stealing rights of Women. No way is pro-life about saving Brown and Black babies. That was proven the way they treated children of Central American migrants, who were forced to separate from their parents, by this current administration, which doesn’t give a damn about the mental harm they have/are causing those children.

Those asleep on the pro-life movement in America, will someday put the pieces of the puzzle together, if Roe vs Wade is overturned, and realize that’s what the pro-life movement in America has always been about.

eek oh, shit.

Let’s hope they didn’t put anything in the food those girls and boys were eating. Trump’s administration is known for lying to the American people, and they have no regard nor do they give a damn about how they are affecting, the mental state of those children, because they come from Brown countries. Let’s not forget what happened to many Native Americans on their own land, when many early, European immigrants came over here, and some within that population did whatever they could to get rid of Native Americans and disrepected their culture/way of life.

The facts about Trump’s policy of separating families at the border

June 19, 2018 at 3:00 AM
: https://www.google.com/am...he-border/
excerpt:
We do not have a policy of separating families at the border. Period.”
— Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, on Twitter, June 17

The president and top administration officials say U.S. laws or court rulings are forcing them to separate families that are caught trying to cross the southern border.

These claims are false. Immigrant families are being separated primarily because the Trump administration in April began to prosecute as many border-crossing offenses as possible. This “zero-tolerance policy” applies to all adults, regardless of whether they cross alone or with their children.

The Justice Department can’t prosecute children along with their parents, so the natural result of the zero-tolerance policy has been a sharp rise in family separations.

what i do NOT understand about drumpf-trump supporters is the FACT that they hear, read and see through his blatant lies, yet they follow him with a religious fervor.
seems america is no longer being represented by the statue of liberty icon under the leadership of the current POTUS.
from what I've been reading. some of these detention centers have poorly trained staff personnel. As a result there have been several reports of child abuse.
