That IS what they are!
It worked in Syria…
They come here because it’s this or death. They seek out America because most of the countries on the way here are equally dangerous. Most of those places are so dangerous in part due to US policies and covert actions. They don’t come here seeking concentration camps but asylum. We just like to violation international law.
Republicans are making big profits off of their Concentration Camps for Children.
Never mind the children that are dying or getting pregnant in the ‘camps’,
Republicans will just move them to military bases to restrict the press.
They are detention camps, not concentration camps. Concentration camps were devised to put people to death through genocide or working the inmates to death at factories under inhumane conditions such as lack of food and clothing. Bit of a difference. But there shouldn’t be detention camps either, so fight against them.
This cartoon is the result of the OAC’s big mouth….she’s too radical and too far left for me! BOO HISS Someone in congress needs to tame her before she starts something she can’t finish …Helloooo NANCY?
I will never understand the deplorable, conservative mind that thinks there is something humorous about concentration camps. Especially those for children.
This cartoon is a foolish and insulting response to a serious problem.
Now they’ll kidnap the child, deport the parents without their little boy, and then LOSE the little boy.
And Trump followers will DEFEND it.
It appears that “compassionate conservatives” left the GOP long ago ….
Even an American “concentration camp” beats what they leave behind. And yet.. some begrudge them.
Well, yeah, they have to stand for hours on end, they’re getting sick, and children are dying left and right… but it’s not like they’re people, right, Mr. Bok?
That exactly what the republicans have built…………concentration camps so our boot jacked, border guards can concentrate on how to separate families and let the children die, instead of letting them into the US as we did on ellis Island.
Per expert opinion, including the views of historians, these are concentration camps. Insisting that they be called detention caps is as stupid as “freedom gas”, “clean coal” and pushing mass incarceration of the U.S. public (especially for minorities) with mandatory life sentences for non-violent crimes.
It appears that Bok wishes us to think of the detention centers as being “nicer” than wherever the asylum seekers are coming from. The shocking truth is that he could be right. But the other shocking truth is that they are underfunded, over crowded, badly organized and that at least some of the guards are (sexual) predators… and that is still better…
We can be better than that, and we should be better than that. And in 2020, we will have a chance to explain in very certain terms exactly how we feel about that.
The Trump administration is arguing in court that they don’t need to give the detained children SOAP.
What sort of monsters are these people? And what do you have to do to your conscience to defend this?
“The Trump administration argued in front of a Ninth Circuit panel Tuesday that the government is not required to give soap or toothbrushes to children apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border and can have them sleep on concrete floors in frigid, overcrowded cells, despite a settlement agreement that requires detainees be kept in “safe and sanitary” facilities. "
All three judges appeared incredulous during the hearing in San Francisco, in which the Trump administration challenged previous legal findings that it is violating a landmark class action settlement by mistreating undocumented immigrant children at U.S. detention facilities.
“You’re really going to stand up and tell us that being able to sleep isn’t a question of safe and sanitary conditions?’” U.S. Circuit Judge Marsha Berzon asked the Justice Department’s Sarah Fabian Tuesday.
U.S. Circuit Judge William Fletcher also questioned the government’s interpretation of the settlement agreement.
“Are you arguing seriously that you do not read the agreement as requiring you to do anything other than what I just described: cold all night long, lights on all night long, sleeping on concrete and you’ve got an aluminum foil blanket?” Fletcher asked Fabian. “I find that inconceivable that the government would say that that is safe and sanitary.”
