People are trying to help the kids @ the border .... They're being turned away.

Bottom line Trump and company are being cruel on purpose because they are paying $775 per day
per child and still the kids aren't food, showers, soap, tooth paste, and blankets. I am overwhelmed
with shame and sadness @ this nightmare which is based in trying to call out to his racist base.
*****************************************
People want to donate diapers and toys to children at Border Patrol facilities in Texas. They’re being turned away.

On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.

But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.

For a while, the group stood there dumbfounded about what to do next. Ultimately, they decided to pack up and head home. Savage said he wasn’t completely surprised by the rejection; before he left, the group spotted a discarded plastic bag near the lobby door holding toothpaste and soap that had a note attached to it: “I heard y’all need soap + toothpaste for kids.”

“These kids are being underserved, and they’re not getting what they need,” Canales said. “We discussed diapers, hygiene products, and I pressed upon him that from a PR perspective that it looks terrible we’re not meeting their needs and they’re not accepting donations from the public.

from the comment section ... not only are they being cruel but the grifting is big time too

US taxpayers are paying $775.00 per child per night to private companies to care for these poor, neglected and abused children.

Full Stomachs
New and good clothes

They are just being cruel because the want to be cruel.

4. It's absolutely incredible. Wealthiest country in the world, and the kids imprisoned are

not taken care of. It's just damn incredible and such a black stain on the history of the US. tRump will be enshrined forever as one of the darkest diabolical creatures ever in the history of the presidency of the US. What is absolutely shocking are those that support him. What kind of a country do we live in.
