Trump team quietly ships kids to tent cities so they can't run away

By Bernie Dennler III - October 1, 2018

Children are being rounded up in the dead of night and sent to a huge Texas tent city, where they have no access to education and few legal protections.

Hundreds of unaccompanied minors have been ripped from well-regulated shelters in the dead of night and dumped into a mostly unregulated desert tent city, according to a new report by The New York Times.

Thanks to the Trump administrationís cruel immigration policies, the population of unaccompanied minor children being detained by the U.S. has skyrocketed fivefold since last year. To accommodate this surge, children are being moved out of licensed shelters and into a large desert encampment in Tornillo, Texas.

At the licensed shelters, which are monitored by state welfare agencies, kids received schooling and even regular legal assistance. But those basic services get stripped away from the children who are moved to Tornillo.

Understandably, many children donít want to be put in that position. Thatís why they are being smuggled away in the dead of night, shelter workers told the Times ó to prevent escape attempts.

1. much like Gitmo and Abu Gharibe before it...

if you want to CREATE terrorists... treat people like this... locked up for no apparent reason, treated poorly, without basic access to family or legal recourse.

Even wrongly convicted criminals understand WHY they are being treated the way they are... these children have no such understanding and no hope of ever changing their circumstances.
