Their have been many visits by president Trump and most recently VP Pence to check on the conditions at border detention centers.
Both have returned from those visits stating how wonderful conditions are.
Out of the hundreds of detention centers, do you really think the guides are really taking our two leaders to the worst of the worse?
A recent visit by members of Congress including Delaware’s two US Senators, Chris Coons and Tom Carper.
Coons reported, “Conditional are getting less bad as supplemental appropriations provides funding for more facilities and supplies, but we should not be mistaken: For our country to have children and families in detention under the circumstances I saw in McAllen is unacceptable,” he said.
He said individuals were being provided water that was so heavily chlorinated as to be barely drinkable, many detainees were not told where their family members are; and instructions provided to migrants on when and where to appear for immigration hearings were solely in English and lacking specific dates, describing one site as “a dog kennel.”
I don’t care what your position is on immigrants, many of these people coming in legally asking for asylum, but this country treats prisoners accused of murder better than we are treating these immigrants.
