Why did Trump recall the troops he sent to the border right after the mid-term elections?

    13,000 migrant children in detention: America's horrifying reality
    13,000 migrant children in detention: America's horrifying reality (opinion) - CNN

    Pretend you are a child far from home. Without warning, federal officers rouse you in the middle of the night, put you on a bus and send you across the United States to live in a tent city constructed in a desert wasteland, where summer temperatures hover around 100 degrees.

    You will not be provided schooling, classes of any kind or books. You will spend the next few months with thousands of other children, wondering if and when your childhood will be returned to you.

    You have fled unimaginable violence, have crossed entire countries alone, only to find that your right to request asylum requires that you first survive a camp that more closely mirrors a place for interned prisoners than for children.
    According to The New York Times, this is the reality for some 13,000 migrant children being held in detention centers across the country. The aggressiveness of the Trump administration's policies toward migrant children has created a new term -- "tender age shelters" -- language which ironically obfuscates the truth about the billion-dollar business of holding children in shelters run by some of the same private companies that operate prisons.


    As the Trump administration ramps up the construction of tent camps, what remains clear is that the big business of detention centers for migrant children will only continue to grow, and that few safeguards are in place to ensure the health and well-being of those children.

    Yeah. CNN calls foster care "detention." And Democrats are stupid enough to believe it.

    You mean like when the children were being separated under the President Obama regime? And trump and the republicans do indeed want legal immigration, just not Mob rule nor have a open line to have drug cartels and terrorist just waltz right in!

    How about having those other nations take responsibility for just how bad the nations are becoming?

    Any news that is driven to just give us liberal and democratic viewpoints in indeed fake news!
    They have made Trump out to be antichrist, and Obama was their black messiah!

    "Far from home" is the key phrase. Who brought you?

    I can imagine that these "detained" children are receiving good medical care for the first time in their life while under "detention" so-called.

    Their parents, though well intentioned, are at fault for risking their short life, the US government a provider of care of these children endangered by their parents.

    That article is horrifyingly laughable. I don’t hate Alice Driver, but I do detest her drivel, which doesn’t even rise to the level of opinion. Her emotionally charged rhetoric might move someone whose brain operates only at that level, but it should in no way sway, much less shape US policy.

    If someone braved hundreds of miles through territory as disparate as she describes to get to the US, then they can certainly stand a little bus ride once here. Being raped and ravaged by homeland gangs since 7 sounds like just the sort of childhood you would love to have taken away from you, if only for a few months, even in a camp fenced to keep the bad guys out.

    But I like her “new test” best. “In the meantime, though, we should implement a new test: Would President Donald Trump send his grandchildren to live in the Tornillo tent camp?” So now these temporary camps should be on a par with Trump Tower or Mar-a-Lago? Then we’ll all be ditching our passports and pretending to seek asylum! Please, Alice, go back to your wonderland and spare us the crazy-driving drivel that poses as opinion.
