Hundreds of migrant children have been transferred out of a filthy Border Patrol station in Texas where they had been detained for weeks without access to soap, clean clothes or adequate food, the authorities confirmed on Monday, suggesting that worsening conditions and overcrowding inside federal border facilities may have reached a breaking point.Observers said the children who were living there needed diapers, clean clothes and toothbrushes. Facilities with poor conditions have trickled out in recent months  Access to the facilities has been largely restricted, however, even as federal authorities have declared that the number of migrants on the border has escalated beyond their ability to safely handle.

Billions? Did you know that hotels (i.e corporations) are being paid to house children. What incentive is there to solve this problem if the $$$ is flowing to corporations. I just signedthis petition demanding that hotels publicly refuse to let ICE use their properties as jails for immigrants!

They need to be cared for by their parents! We need to stop kidnapping them from their parents!

"the agency, along with the Homeland Security Department, Defense Department and Justice Department,had requested $4.5 billionto help care for the growing number of migrant children who are in shelters."
