UN Human Rights commissioner regarding US immigration policies:

"The thought that any State would seek to deter parents by inflicting such abuse on children is unconscionable."

🇺🇸👇
The @UNHumanRights spoke out early last year about Session, republican GOP and Trump's inhumane policy of separating families..
Sad thing is the families were fleeing from danger to seek asylum to protect their children from starvation and/or violence
How to claim asylum.

Block out all the nonsense you’ve heard

This journalist gets it.

The Trump administration took an average of 46 migrant kids a day from their parents last month. As of this month they're up to 67 kids a day.

Lifelong trauma has already been inflicted on young children removed from the arms of their parents and put in detention centers. The U.S. government is not set up to house thousands of little children.

Trump admin planning internment camps for detained immigrant families.
Sept 2018 #Maddow #FEMA @DHSgov transferring 10 MILLION Dollars of #HurricaneMaria recovery funds to #ChildrenInCages #ICE Detention programs - JUST as Hurricane Season is in full swing. @SenJeffMerkley exposes this!
The entire nation is crying with Rachel #Maddow. How can the United States of America have internment camps designed for babies? What ICE agent has the ability to rip a baby from a mom’s begging, outstretched arms? BABIES??? #immigrants #AsylumSeekers
On the day @nikkihaley & Trump pulled us out of the UN Human Rights Council, Cal Perry is reporting GOP have set up concentration camps for children and a "tender age" shelter for babies/toddlers taken from their parents.
Sept 2018 @Lawrence #Maddow
I should note that @fema is lying. The document @SenJeffMerkley gave to @maddow indicates that one of the areas from which the nearly $10 million was deducted for immigrant concentration camps includes “Response and Recovery.” More than $2.3 million of it.
@SenJeffMerkley: @realDonaldTrump’s racist Wall has become a symbol of child separation, child prisons, family internment camps, & a callous attitude towards those who arrive in our country fleeing persecution; a country where most all of us are immigrants
6/30/18 WATCH: Actor @GeorgeTakei compares the Trump admin.'s family separation policy to the internment camps his family was sent to when he was a child in the 1940s.
Dec 2018 @SenJeffMerkley Right now, the United States is locking up 14,000 children in child prison camps across America. We CANNOT forget these children. This is a broken system that must be fixed.
A child reunited w her mom after being separated at the border. The mother raining tears while her daughter looks dazed, emotionless. The United States is operating concentration camps for children.😭
So many children will never get to hug their moms again
Coincidently private prison companies that run @ICEgov detention centers invested heavily into the Trump presidency..
Private prison industry has managed to emerge from the near wreckage of the summer of 2016 facing a lucrative future. It's imperative we push the envelope as far as we can to ensure that these prisons & immigration detention centers are held accountable https://www.brennancenter.org/blog/trump%E2%80%99s-first-year-has-been-private-prison-industry-best
Cicilline: It was "unsurprising that the Admin would choose to leave the Council at the same time as it is perpetrating human rights abuses against immigrant children within our own borders, a policy that the UN & other countries have rightly condemned." https://twitter.com/UNHumanRights/status/1009188496370814976?s=19
