  • Border Patrol facilities housing migrant youth are being likened to concentration camps as horrifying conditions ignite fear that more incarcerated children will die. "Virtually no one is taking care of these children," says Warren Binford, a law professor who visited the Clint Border Patrol station near El Paso, Texas. "They are locked up in these cells 24 hours a day. There are open toilets in many cells, there's no soap … many of them are forced to sleep on concrete."#DemocracyNowDemocracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

    These Corporations and the employees need to be charged with criminal negligent. Sadistic power-hungry guards that somehow get their rocks off picking on children. Despicable in every way!! When are we as a Nation going to rise up and stop this abuse?

    The international community needs to be informed. There are UN laws against these things, and the US needs to be held accountable before the world courts.

    This is a catastrophe for the US because furious children grow up becoming very angry adults. Some of these adults will be induced with much hate. That hate will be dangerous. The US society have taken their childhood away, and they will come back, and they will haunt the US for at least 100 years. There is nothing that can protect you from the monsters created in these concentration camps. No weapons, no laws, nothing, but one thing: Stop this madness, now. Beg for forgiveness. Bring the kids back to their parents. Let them in to your country, give them schooling and proper housing and newer ever do this again.
    Greetings from Europe.

    The kids are being treated the same way the U.S. prisoners are. Sounds like a prison tactic
