PARDON ME FOR SCREAMING

Sorry, I have not been paying attention lately, family issues. I hear today a story of adults being kept in a room, cage, cell, confinement so closely packed that they are standing on toilets to get more breathing room? This level on concentration is not only unhealthy, cruel, and disgusting but if true would actually be illegal under rules and regulations of a confined animal feeding permit. THATS RIGHT, THIS SOUNDS AS IF WE CARE MORE ABOUT OUR LIVESTOCK THEN THOSE SEEKING ASYLUM...................Then I hear stories of children, taken from their parents, being kept with numerous other children in confinement situations, not being cared for, not having bathed for weeks, not having soap, diapers where necessary, toothbrushes, clean clothes, or any other toiletries. I would assume that this neglect includes lack of medical care, adult nurturing, comfortable surroundings and proper sleeping arrangements. And no, a Kevlar blanket on a concrete floor does not count as proper sleeping arrangements for any child, PERIOD. But despite all of this, I hear of the somewhat older children at times are trying to help the toddlers. THINK LONG AND HARD ABOUT THAT A child, in this situation, removed from parents, living like this with all this fear, distress, and uncertainty---THEN FINDS THE COURAGE AND DECENCY TO TRY TO HELP THE LITTLE ONES WHO ARE EVEN LESS FORTUNATE.............We built this nation on the ideas of EQUALITY, UNALIENABLE HUMAN RIGHTS, LIFE LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. When we started these ideals were something to aspire too. We have fought a war amongst ourselves and have struggled for our full existence to get closer to realizing this dream. We have made progress, but certainly not enough. The caging of these most vulnerable of human beings shows what we are sliding back into. THE RESPONSE OF THESE CHILDREN, AT TIMES TRYING TO CARE FOR ONEANOTHER SHOWS WHAT COURAGE, CIVILITY, AND DECENCY WE AS HUMANS COULD BE! MR TRUMP, STOP THIS NOW AND REUNITE THESE LITTLE BRAVE SOULS WITH THEIR FAMILIES. I AM TIRED OF BEING ASHAMED OF MY COUNTRY.

2. Don't mind the screaming at all

But, love, if you could make a paragraph or two that would be heartily appreciated.

3. What Trump is doing with asylum seekers

 

and especially the kids is certainly at the very least an impeachable offense. Yeah but it's too soon to impeach, not enough kids have died or been traumatized yet.

I wonder how many more facilities there are that we don't even know about? Why can't elected officials demand to inspect the sites? I guarantee you that if I represented one of those districts I would find a way to inspect them.

Trump is just boosting the economy. General Kelly left the Trump administration and went to the private prison corporation that is charging taxpayers $750.00 per kid per day to incarcerate them. I don't know why people are pizzed off, there is good money in locking up kids, it's not like they are real people they are brown for crying out loud.

Do I fucking need the sarcasm thingy?
