They were pulled over by a cop, arrested, separated, put in freezing cold cells at a detention center, and forced to sleep on the floor. The woman refused to let her infant sleep on the "filthy" floor, so she tried balancing him on her chest. Food and blankets were woefully inadequate; flown to a family detention center in Pennsylvania, known as a "baby jail," where the infant -- who hasn't had all of his immunization shots yet -- was exposed to dozens of other kids. Again, dirty conditions, with sheets and blankets that the mother said smelled like a dead dog. Still in custody they weren't allowed to turn around and drive back into Canada? Welcome to America!"
