  • Outrage is mounting over a shocking Associated Press report published late last week revealing that at least 250 migrant infants, children and teenagers have been locked up for nearly a month without adequate food, water or sanitation at a Border Patrol station in Clint, Texas, near the city of El Paso. Lawyers who visited the facility described a scene of chaos and sickness, with children unable to shower or change into clean clothes for weeks on end. The AP report came the same week that the Trump administration argued in federal court that the government is not required to provide toothbrushes, soap or beds to children detained at the border, and as other reports found similarly squalid conditions at a number of immigration jails. We speak with Warren Binford, a lawyer who interviewed children detained at the Clint, Texas, facility.#DemocracyNowDemocracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

    CoreCivic the largest for profit prison company according to the new york times owns most of the migrant detention centers. They are billing us at a rate of $750/day/person or child or baby. This is disscusting. This whole situation is disscusting , are we really going to let this racist and illegal policy continue? And what kind of a low life can cash those government checks?

    We Webster Dictionary offically have concentration death camps at our borders. Shame on the evil in Washington. D.C. that created this horror. If we as parents treated our own children like this child protective services would be at our door.

    As if all of this weren't bad enough, so-called journalists like Chuck Todd get outraged when AOC calls these camps what they are. Instead of spreading the justified outrage the press is trying to actively suppress it.

    Thank you Amy. As always you bring the truth, even that which we don't like to hear.
    It is such a shameful time to be an American.

    We need more footage inside these facilities to show the horror so people will understand the concentration camp conditions.
