    The Trump administration called immigrant children future criminals ......

    You want to know why I despise Trump? This is why. This shit right here is why.


    The Trump administration called immigrant children future criminals on the same day Border Patrol was accused of sexually and physically abusing child detainees.


    Immigrant advocates have long said that the children, primarily from Central America, are fleeing violence in their home countries and seeking safe harbor in the United States. But the Trump administration has used their plight to justify cracking down on policies that allow these migrants to be released and obtain hearings before immigration judges, rather than being deported immediately.

    “We have the worst immigration laws of any country, anywhere in the world,” Trump said at the roundtable held at the Morrelly Homeland Security Center. “They exploited the loopholes in our laws to enter the country as unaccompanied alien minors.”


    Trump added: “They look so innocent. They’re not innocent.”

    Examples of the documented abuses include allegations that CBP officials:

    • Punched a child’s head three times
    • Kicked a child in the ribs
    • Used a stun gun on a boy, causing him to fall to the ground, shaking, with his eyes rolling back in his head
    • Ran over a 17-year-old with a patrol vehicle and then punched him several times
    • Verbally abused detained children, calling them dogs and “other ugly things”
    • Denied detained children permission to stand or move freely for days and threatened children who stood up with transfer to solitary confinement in a small, freezing room
    • Denied a pregnant minor medical attention when she reported pain, which preceded a stillbirth
    • Subjected a 16-year-old girl to a search in which they “forcefully spread her legs and touched her private parts so hard that she screamed”
    • Left a 4-pound premature baby and her minor mother in an overcrowded and dirty cell full of sick people, against medical advice
    • Threw out a child’s birth certificate and threatened him with sexual abuse by an adult male detainee.

    The report also shows evidence of CBP holding migrant children in excess of the 72-hour maximum period permitted by law, as well as officials’ efforts to deport children without due process and via coercion.

    It looks like we have our very own "Bill the Butchers" now doing government work.

    Funny how the poster can't bear to hear about Trump without bringing up Obama.

    Care to discuss the actual subject, i.e., these children.

    Point granted. And what do you think of what is happening to these children. FURTHER: the post with the article. These lost children. That okay with you, that they're like being trafficked? I mean - as long as they are immigrants.
