Subject: BS: Toddlers housed in kennel cages

US Sen.Merkley D from OR says immigrant children of people applying for asylum in the US are housed in an abandoned Texas Walmart with blacked out windows and are kept in kennel cages with no mattress and one mylar emergency blanket. There are about 1,000 children in that one facility.


This is a new Trump/Sessions policy to exact punishment and discouragement for all immigrants who legally apply for status in the US. This is not an Obama policy as Trump claims.

so true keb

Senofou, btw I was thinking of you being most in tune with a very special African word.


Ubuntu - the root of the word is a Zulu word. It's often described as - I am because of you or we can't be deeply human in a vacuum. And I've extended that to say that it is not only through people but through our interactions with all sentient beings on the planet that we feel our humanness.

When you live in a village, naturally, you live close to nature. And the natural world around affects the way you are. It creates extended family. It creates shared community. And it creates a sense of belonging to something. And I think that a lot of the anxiety disorders and depression that we see in the world are actually an undiagnosed homesickness for a sense of belonging.

And that sense of belonging means to each other - to what it means to be human, what it means to be a part of the natural world. And the goal is to be so present that that humanity - whatever we are met by in other people - a compassion to be with that arises. And that brings us to a deeper part of ourselves.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

RAZ: Boyd tells a story in his TED Talk that gets at this idea. And it's about a female baby elephant who passed through his family's game reserve named Elvis. And they called her Elvis because when she walked...

(SOUNDBITE OF TED TALK)

VARTY: She walked like she was doing the Elvis the Pelvis dance. She was born with very badly deformed back legs and pelvis. When I first saw her, I thought she would be dead in a matter of days. And yet, for the next five years, she returned in the winter months.

And we would be so excited to be out in The Bush and to come across this unusual trek. And we would drop whatever we were doing, and we would follow. And then we would come around the corner. And there she would be with her herd.

And then one day, we came across them at this small waterhole. It was sort of a hollow in the ground. And I watched as the matriarch drank. And then she turned in that beautiful slow motion of elephants. And she began to make her way up the steep bank. The rest of the herd turned - shoo - and began to follow.

And I watched young Elvis begin to psych herself up for the hill. She had a full go at it. And halfway up, her legs gave way and she fell backwards. She attempted it a second time. And again, halfway up, she fell backwards. And on the third attempt, an amazing thing happened. Halfway up the bank, a young teenage elephant came in behind her. And he propped his trunk underneath her, and he began to shovel her up the bank.

And it occurred to me that the rest of the herd was, in fact, looking after this young elephant. The next day, I watched again as the matriarch broke a branch. And she would put it in her mouth. And then she would break a second one and drop it on the ground. And a consensus developed between all of us who were guiding people in that area that that herd was, in fact, moving slower to accommodate that elephant.

What, all of the sudden, the herd taught me caused me to expand my definition of Ubuntu. And I believe that in the cathedral of the wild, we get to see the most beautiful parts of ourselves reflected back at us. And it is not only through other people that we get to experience our humanity but through all the creatures that live on this planet.

(SOUNDBITE OF MUSIC)

RAZ: Wow. It's such a beautiful story. I mean, just thinking about how the herd was - you know, was looking out for this elephant. I mean, it just makes you think that, you know - it's like this idea is intertwined in everything around us.

VARTY: Yeah. And it doesn't always show up in, you know, ways that we would consider harmonious. You know, sometimes the Ubuntu in nature is the swiftness in which an injured animal is taken out of suffering by another animal. But there's an elegance to nature. And there is a way that everything is holding everything else.

You know, my definition of harmony is - everything is uniquely itself. And by being uniquely itself - a part of a greater unfolding. And that is what all the ancient cultures knew - you know, this intricate connection. And when you live in a relationship with that, you start to know yourself as a part of.

Within that is a kind of oneness and a felt oneness between all things.


Its partly why we are on Mudcat.

Kennel is an emotive word; more so than cage. Perhaps visual proof is required before condemnation. However for a series of governments that have encouraged extraordinary rendition and regarded water boarding as merely enhanced interrogation, then perhaps children in kennels could be regarded as a logical progression.

Must agree to disagree with you, Donuel, about
Iain's philosophy. You won't see this my way, which is all right.

The philosophy of the hardened cynic
tends toward negation, so of course it is polarized and polarizing.
The informed mistrust of cynicism can be off-putting emotionally.
Now I don't read every post by Iains,
because there are entire BS threads which I avoid, for my health.

But just because Iains posts opinions with the rough-coated detachment of the hardened veteran,
does that make the author of the posts
hard to the core? I sincerely doubt that.

And I don't think Iains comes off as anti-umbuntu
just because he doesn't show us any warm squishy emotion.

I will concede, however,
that it is easy for the cynicism ingrained into Iain's dispatches
to stir up defensiveness, especially in emotions.
It has not been easy for me to keep my own feelings in check
when I read a post from you, Iains,
but the exercise is good for me mentally;
and I am aware of someone beneath the surface of your dispatches
who is capable of humanity.

I will go on reading Iains' posts carefully and with interest.

Donuel the ship of state sails on serenely at the behest of the bureaucrats. Nothing changes overnight as a new President takes office, the system has too much inertia. With this Presidency it could be argued that the reluctance of the administrative to bend to Trump's diktat verges on open rebellion.
So you must ask yourself who is putting children in cages- the administrative, or the President?

But does no-one draw attention to their plight and demand that this treatment be exposed and stopped immediately? Innocent children being cruelly penned in like that is a wicked scandal.

No matter who initiated it or who 'carries out their orders', most folk with an ounce of compassion would be up in arms about such abuse!

It may well still be going on ( Deep State functioning) but...


"Some liberal activists and journalists scrambled Sunday and Monday to delete tweets and social media posts incorrectly linking the Trump administration to an old photo of detained illegal-immigrant minors being held in a cage.

The 2014 shot was actually taken during the Obama administration.

The photo went viral as liberals — perhaps spurred by unrelated reports that Homeland Security “lost track of” almost 1,500 illegal-immigrant minors after they were released — mistakenly assumed the shot was taken much more recently, and rushed to criticize Trump administration “cruelty.”

“This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible,” former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau said on Twitter.

Mr. Favreau deleted the tweet, though not before it had been screen-captured.

Other liberal activists and journalists, such as Shaun King of Black Lives Matter, Linda Sarsour of the Women’s March, and Muslim activist Qasim Rashid still had the fake news up Monday afternoon."

From the OP- clickey

"In a statement, the press secretary for the Department of Homeland Security said: "DHS follows the laws passed by Congress and processes alien children safely and humanely. Contrary to any misinformation campaign, the safety of children is paramount for DHS. I encourage Senator Merkley to work with the administration to fix the underlying loopholes that act as a pull factor for illegal immigration and place these children at risk from smugglers and human traffickers.

"At 2pm on a Friday, the Senator asked to visit a secure DHS facility over the weekend where children are present and we worked with him to provide him access. This presented obvious and serious privacy concerns – not to mention disrupting operations. He was able to visit the facility on Sunday.""

Senoufou any publicity shining on the treatment of children in care is to be welcomed irregardless of the reason for their status. Too much, in too many places has impacted adversely the lives of these children.
Institutional abuse goes way beyond incarceration in cages, as both ongoing and past enquiries clearly show. Those running any such institutions need to be policed constantly and thoroughly. The likes of jimmy saville and thomas hamilton are two that were caught. How many others remain in the shadows?

Keboroxu my introduction to your posts a year ago reminded me of someone in quiet stocking feet venturing forth with courage and uncertainty. Well you put on your loud shoes and are doing the walk of life with far more confidence. Your thunder is growing louder and that is a good natural harmless thing. No one gets hurt by thunder.

No apologies needed for seeing differently. You nailed the cynicism thing. In fact you see more clearly. I do not see a hardened military veteran. I see a malevolent foreign agent who has an anti western agenda and is well versed in the sins of the west in which our Constitution can in fact address in the fullness of time. Until it is proved differently I will interpret the indirect shadows I see on the cave wall.


Until someone googles the immigrant child Trump policy for themselves there is no response to the various "I think" posts.

There would be no problem in opening up these kind of establishments to public scrutiny and proper inspection. In the absence of that it is reasonable to suspect the worst.

Governments love to try to divert criticism to accusations about how previous administrations may have played a part in shaping things. That kind of stuff can only be of any significance after the existing injustice and maladministration has been rectified.
Until that's been done, nothing else is relevant.

The photos do not look like a kennel to me.According to the text the cage walls are 18' high. The crowding and lack of exercise time is far from ideal.
But were they to let unaccompanied into the streets with limited funds and no legal way of working,what would be the outcome?
Is it a choice between incarceration or becoming street children?(and all that this entails)

It seems the media recount the more colorful side of the equation and carefully omit the potential darker side.

Nice to know the daily telegraph is fake news, I suspect one or two here might take issue with you on that.

It does seem to me that there has been a problem dealing with the sheer number of unaccompanied illegal child immigrants since at least OBama's second administration. To suddenly see it as a problem now is a tad mendacious.
Where was your outrage during OBama's administration? By now the situation should have been resolved. Where was your democratic protest over that? After all it was during your administration the problem raised it's head and nothing was done to make any attempt to alleviate the situation.

To suddenly make out it is a brand new problem due to the President is totally dishonest. Where is your shame?

"“Today, nearly one in every 200 children in the world is a refugee,” said Lily Caprani, Unicef UK’s deputy executive director. “In the last few years we have seen huge numbers of children being forced to flee their homes, and take dangerous, desperate journeys, often on their own. Children on the move are at risk of the worst forms of abuse and harm and can easily fall victim to traffickers and other criminals."
Just two countries – Syria and Afghanistan – comprise half of all child refugees under protection by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), while roughly three-quarters of the world’s child refugees come from just 10 countries.

Now I wonder what country has created the mayhem to create these refugees? Is Iran the next domino to fall to swell the numbers?

New and on-going global conflicts over the last five years have forced the number of child refugees to jump by 75% to 8 million,

"Now I wonder what country has created the mayhem to create these refugees?"
At present, the most ongoing reason for refugees is traceable back to oil - the need to guarantee a steady flow to the richer countries
The largest single national group of refugees in the world today are The Palestinians - NEARLY 7.2 MILLION
That is set to increase dramatically if the present demands for ethnic cleansing the Palestinians is met.
Britain as a former Empire is very much a part of the creating of that inconceivable figure, especially with its policy of indiscriminate arms sales and the desire to to keep a "safe pair of hands" in charge, whatever their Human Rights record
For instance, it seems appalling to sell fighter planes to the Saudis to be used in their war against the Famine-struck Yemenis and then refuse entry to the refugees from that war
That's pretty well the stance we have taken in Syria - a war we could have helped stop, but instead, sold Assad chemicals that possibly helped him build a stock of chemical weapons

I know what the Trump Administration says about immigrants, and I doubt that they would have any hesitation about caging kids and breaking apart families. But I worked for the U.S. Government 1970-2001, and I know that U.S. civil servants generally will not treat human beings in an inhumane manner. I've worked in a number of immigration detention facilities, and they are generally quite humane. At least during the time that I worked for the government, a large number of Immigration employees were foreign-born, because most were required to speak a second language.

I did write a number of scathing reports on Immigration employees who were cruel in their treatment of immigrants, but those inhumane employees were a very small minority.

So, yeah, it's hard for me to believe that immigration detention facilities are as cruel as some liberal politicians claim them to be, or that some conservative politicians want them to be.

But for a U.S. Senator or Member of Congress to be refused entry to a government facility? That seems to me to be unthinkable. I think there must be something more to that story.

I'd like to see the truth, and so far I have seen information from sources I don't know or don't trust.

My impression is that the professionals dealing with the children are being overwhelmed by the sheer numbers - formerly, they only had 'unaccompanied minors' - mostly teenagers - to deal with; now they have large numbers of 'accompanied' minors added, and these are younger children. The accusation is not that individuals are treating them badly, but that the system itself is, in the end, unnecessarily cruel.

Surely this has to be more humane than arresting them and caging them along with their parents?
The wider issues of: private detention facilitities
                     overcrowding

In UK, there are several 'contracted-out' prisons, run by G4S, Serco etc. Yet they are subject to regular compulsory, unannounced inspections by government teams in the same way as any other prisons. The same regulations apply to all detention units, Young Offenders Institutions, immigration detention centres and so on.

Surely one cannot have private companies keeping people (including children!!!) in detention with no monitoring, assessment or supervision? All sorts of horrendous abuses could be taking place!

I understand that many of the children detained as illegal immigrants had no parents with them at the time of their arrest. The poor souls just crossed the border unattended, so it might be incorrect to imagine they've been 'torn from their parents' in any way. This has happened across Europe too, and what to do with them is a difficult problem.

But the environment at the centres should be suitable for children, and include some form of play, fresh air, comfortable sleeping arrangements and assessment by medical staff etc. They are NOT criminals at such a young age, and could become victims of paedophiles/illegal workforce etc if 'farmed out to 'volunteer carers'. Regular inspection is vital.

It all sounds like Oliver Twist, and the centre resembles the blooming Workhouses set up in England in the nineteenth century! Disgraceful, and lacking in any basic compassion for their physical and mental welfare.

If parents are arrested, irregardless of the crime, the children are not arrested with them and put in the same jail. They are put in a care facility.
The US has a problem with incarceration. They have too many in jail per head ofpopulation compared to all other civilised countries.
   The real issue here is that the facilities for dealing with children are insufficient, inadequate and quite likely poorly supervised. That this situation may be exacerbated by regarding illegal aliens as criminals simply adds to what was an ongoing problem going back some years, certainly before this administration took office.
The real need for protest is that these ongoing problems have not been addressed.

I'm listening right now to a report from one Dr Colleen Kraft, President of the American Academy of Pediatrics, who just visited one of these detention sites - she says she saw a number of toddlers there, some "pre-verbal" - she told a heart-breaking story of a toddler crying hysterically for her mother. None of the staff is allowed to touch these children, so no one could hug the child to comfort her. It's monstrous.

"Some 90% of the children at the shelter arrived at the border without adults; the other 10% were separated from the adults accompanying them. Once the children arrive — usually brought by U.S. Border Patrol agents — they are greeted in the “intake” office, where they receive any urgent medical care, are assigned a case worker, and are given food, a shower, and new clothing. They are also given toiletries and lessons in hygiene — literally how to flush a toilet, brush their teeth, and operate the shower, which some of the children may have never seen in their lives.

They have limited access to telephones to call relatives, both in the U.S. and abroad. They receive therapy, both as individuals and in group sessions. They enjoy field trips to local museums, parks, and the zoo, where they can explore the city beyond the shelter. And they also have social activities, including a recent “prom” for which they dressed up.

“Cages,” these are not. What is immediately striking about the facility is the enthusiasm and care of the staff who work there. One administrator greeted the journalists on the tour: “Welcome to our home.” The children at the facility seemed genuinely happy, despite their unfortunate circumstances and the trauma of their long journey.

The real scandal is how the media have portrayed the shelters. When MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff toured a similar facility this week in Brownsville, Texas, for example, he referredto the children there as being “incarcerated,” which is only true in the same sense that hospital patients, too, are not permitted to leave, for their safety. (One official who had seen Soboroff’s televised report accused him of “flat-out lying” about the facility — such as, for example, reporting on a mural of Donald Trump without noting 19 other presidents were similarly depicted.)

Southwest Key has operated its facilities — 27 in total, across California, Arizona, and Texas — since 1997, when the U.S. Supreme Court decided in Flores v. Reno that unaccompanied illegal alien minors could not be held in detention facilities. This is not a new problem, even though it took Trump to make the media realize it existed."

...I did not write this but it is just the facts, ma'am:


In March of 1993, The United States Supreme Court issued a ruling in Flores vs Reno. (Yes, “That” Reno. Janet Reno, Bill Clinton’s first Attorney General who ordered that young Elian Gonzalez be torn from his parents arms while hiding in a Miami closet. You might remember the iconic photograph.)

The Court decided that minors could not be incarcerated with the adults accompanying them across the United States border illegally. The decision was the result of a long dispute in how to best care for these children while the adults were detained for criminal proceedings.

You see, when aliens cross the border illegally, they are incarcerated until their criminal case is decided. The understandable argument at the time was “why should children be incarcerated while their parents are in jail?” It seemed a fundamental violation of international human rights. Makes sense, right?

As a result, The Flores case drew a line in the sand. Children could not be incarcerated with their parents or accompanying adult while being held for illegal immigration violations. And a subsequent 1997 agreement stipulated that children must be placed in a safer environment where they could enjoy certain privileges, including education, a clean, safe environment and other normal life cycle amenities that incarcerated individuals do not enjoy.

It was considered a “victory” for human rights. By separating adult and child, we protected the children, reducing any harm done to them for their parent’s or accompanying adult’s decisions.

A lot has happened since then. However; bottom line, these juvenile, shelters have been operating in accordance with the law, and overseen by the Department of Health and Human Services to protect those children from the hazards of parental incarceration since 1997.

So, since Donald Trump was running his real estate empire, selling wine and casinos in 1993, we are left to determine just how he managed to orchestrate this cruel “separation of immigrant parent and child” 25 years BEFORE he was President of the United States. The obvious answer is, he didn’t. He had nothing to do with establishing this United States immigration policy. Today, he simply enforces it.

This one story illustrates how important it is for us to do our research regarding today’s headlines. The Corporate Media either refuses to do the research, is incapable of doing the research or has done the research and decided to lie to you about its findings. Either way, this would make the Corporate Media lazy, incompetent or just plain deceptive. Liars, if you will.

You decide. For, as NBC would say, “the more you know.“

I don't see any point in staging virtuosity displays over this issue, which is what everybody in the world is doing, maybe a little bit in here, too.
Decisions and laws get made to solve problems which sometimes change over time. The essence of a working democracy is to perceive the changes and act accordingly. The United States has been lazy on many fronts for many years, and immigration and handling of 'illegal' residents is a major failure on all our parts.
"Harvest of Shame" a CBS Reports documentary aired 1959-1960 exposing the plight of immigrant farmworkers who were used as cheap labor.
The movie "El Norte" was a fictionalized story of the remains of a family fleeing violence in Guatemala and finding work and victimization in the United States. 1983 dear people.

By this time the responsibility is firmly on all Americans. Perps down there, perps up here, and users all round.

Trump did not create this mess, he will not fix this mess. Trump is not even a symptom. He's a pustule on the boil, if that.

It's a Pogo moment. Most of you should be old enough to know what that is.

THE US Supream Court has ruled that it is legal to purge people from registered voter lists if they do not vote in a primary.

There was a lot more to it than that, but since YOU are more interested in making a political point than approaching the truth, you ignore the facts.

So it is obvious that YOUR solution to the illegal immigrants is to jail the children with the families, and let them be abused by all and sundry. That IS the Liberal way, right?

I assume Trumps supposed antisemitism is the reason for:

"In what critics framed as Orwellian ‘up-is-down, down-is-up’ remarks from the State Department on Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo officially announced that the U.S. is withdrawing from its participation in the U.N. Human Rights Council, claiming the body responsible for upholding international standards for human rights was no longer “worthy of its name.”

Haley—who has steadfastly refused to acknowledge the human rights violations of close U.S. ally Israel, including multiple charges regarding that country’s alleged war crimes carried out against Palestinians in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza—said the withdrawal from the council was necessary “because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights.”

Human rights commission tossed to the curb
Coincidence my ass


Civil rights are next, then constitutional rights


Puerto Rico showed us the right to life is only as valuable as paper towels.

Americans: what's the general feeling in your neighbourhoods - do people generally care about what's being done in their name to babies and children at the border?

First, Americans do not have neighbourhoods, they have neighbors who only speak about religion and politics anonymously unless they already know their neighbor is an idiot and avoid all but small talk rumors about other neighbors. ;^/

Trump will sign a desist separation of children order but says zero tolerance is still in effect.

So Trump has decided to abolish children separated in concentration camps for family ones instead, wow big deal. I trust the voters in the USA will remember his deeds, and perhaps vote a president in future that gives world respect to the USA
God Bless England :>)


Perhaps there will be less trolling in a new thread to discuss the effectiveness of the executive order and if immigrant families will be reunited and released from concentration camps? Find out in the next riveting chapter, started any moment now . . .
