The withdrawal of bedding as punishment scenario has been seen in other facilities, as well as the overcrowding. The sexual assault allegation is also not a new thing.
And that makes it alright? Incredible! Those are children we are speaking of who deserve far better. Those agents should not be there to abuse them in the manner that has been reported. Period!

Migrant kids in overcrowded Arizona border station allege sex assault, retaliation from U.S. agents
Migrant children held in Yuma, Arizona, report sex assault and retaliation for protests in addition to unsanitary conditions and overcrowding.
By Jacob Soboroff and Julia Ainsley














################################################################################
The horror story concerning the foul treatment of those innocent children continues. The madness on the part of those detaining them is execrable and outrageous! The word "puto", as described, can be translated into something like "whore" in English, someone who is no good. How dare they call children that. How dare they. And the girl who was touched inappropriately is something officials need to hear about and take action on. Testimonies must be given about those horrible and detestable things happening to those innocent children. Would anyone like for their own precious children to be treated and handled that way by those men?
More fake news.

DW, c'mon, really? I don't understand the drive to denigrate those officers that risk their lives to save those children, and be exposed to diseases introduced by illegal aliens. These officers are exposed and bring the diseases home to their own families.

Come on down here and see for yourself what is actually taking place at the border. It infuriates me to see how these brave BP are slammed for doing their job.

I love it when people say "fake" news - yet the current horror stories we have been hearing about in the detention centers are coming from Trump's OWN administration.

Like this one

But inside the secretive site that is now on the front lines of the southwest border crisis, the men and women who work there were grappling with the stuff of nightmares. Outbreaks of scabies, shingles and chickenpox were spreading among the hundreds of children and adults who were being held in cramped cells, agents said. The stench of the children’s dirty clothing was so strong it spread to the agents’ own clothing — people in town would scrunch their noses when they left work. The children cried constantly. One girl seemed likely enough to try to kill herself that the agents made her sleep on a cot in front of them, so they could watch her as they were processing new arrivals.

“It gets to a point where you start to become a robot,” said a veteran Border Patrol agent who has worked at the Clint station since it was built. He described following orders to take beds away from children to make more space in holding cells, part of a daily routine that he said had become “heartbreaking.”

The little-known Border Patrol facility at Clint has suddenly become the public face of the chaos on America’s southern border, after immigration lawyers began reporting on the children they saw — some of them as young as 5 months old — and the filthy, overcrowded conditions in which they were being held.

But a review of the operations of the Clint station, near El Paso’s eastern edge, shows that the agency’s leadership knew for months that some children had no beds to sleep on, no way to clean themselves and sometimes went hungry. Its own agents had raised the alarm, and found themselves having to accommodate even more new arrivals. The accounts of what happened at Clint and at nearby border facilities are based on dozens of interviews by The New York Times and The El Paso Times of current and former Border Patrol agents and supervisors; lawyers, lawmakers and aides who visited the facility; and an immigrant father whose children were held there. The review also included sworn statements from those who spent time at El Paso border facilities, inspection reports and accounts from neighbors in Clint.

Well that may be what you see, Izz, but what the children are seeing appears to be much different. Others have described deplorable conditions at those detention concentration camps. If there is any denigrating of anyone there has to be a good cause for it. Anyone not quite convinced needs to go and ask those kids about what has happened to them, especially that 15 year old girl who was touched most inappropriately and the 16 yr. old males who also suffered heavily while under the BP. Their lawyer is well aware of what has happened and there should be a serious investigation into this matter to get to the bottom of it and punish anyone responsible for unacceptable and unprofessional behavior. But to simply try to dismiss the issue as if the officers were not at fault at all does not do justice to the otherwise volatile situation. That is what cannot be encouraged by any means.

As to the exposure to diseases while working there, those officers know the risks. They became agents knowing all about possible health risks such as those before they took the job. But if they feel they are at great risk to take back some disease to their family then perhaps they might wish to look for another job or take a leave of absence for a while or just take a desk job or even be reassigned to another area someplace else. There are options on that you know. As it stands, no child should be so terribly mistreated and humiliated that while caged like an animal, which is already inhumane treatment in itself, they should continue to suffer by others not believing what they say which is akin to continue kicking them when they're down. That is just not the American way to treat others.

If an officer touched someone inappropriately, they should be punished, no question.
The system is overrun and as we all know, a majority of those facilities weren't designed to hold so many people, hence the overcrowding. Believe me, those officers are doing the best they can with what they have, no thanks to the democrats.
I apply the concerns over contagious diseases to the overcrowding as well. Yes, BPO understand they have a dangerous job however, very rarely have they been tasked with childcare, etc. The illegals normally spend little time at the temporary facilities before they are transferred someplace else.
