Yesterday’s news reported that now 100,000 children are being held captive in camps. If I may add they are concentration camps. The US government has seen it fit to use state hired lawyers to debate in court that we have no legal obligation to supply these children with their basic needs, such as: toothpaste, soap and sanitary napkins. Young girls have been photographed with blood stains on their behinds. The US government pays these “keepers” $750.00 per day per person. Let’s do the math: 100,000 children @ $750.00 / day = $75,000,000.00 ( that’s $75MM). This American Holocaust has been in place for over a year but let’s use the one year timeframe for the purpose of this discussion. $75 Million per day X 365 days = $27,370,000,000.00 per year. In other words this Gestapo is earning 27.4 BILLION dollars per year, paid by us, to enslave and abuse innocent children.

To add insult to injury, when these camps were set up the staff used to guard these children was not vetted. No background checks. Pedophiles and criminals did apply and are in our employment while sexually abusing these children under the great American flag.

The media has also reported that the files that link these children to their parents have been destroyed. Why, I ask? Why? To what purpose?

How can we live within our skin knowing that these atrocities are being committed in our own back yard? I hear no answers. Only silence.

Thank you for this blatant reminder after the refugee story is no longer news. We are so remiss. People must act

    Mark · November 30, 2019 at 9:55 pm

    People can act, stop trying to cross our boarders illegally. One picture is of people’s shoes who were detained and murdered for their race not because they were flooding across Germany’s boarders.

Simon O'Corra · November 22, 2019 at 5:31 am

How do we make this stop?

    Mercedes Jenouri · November 23, 2019 at 2:56 pm

    Massive protests, non stop

    Jessica · November 30, 2019 at 11:06 pm

    Vote

    Susan Light · December 1, 2019 at 1:35 pm

    Get rid of Trump and his staff. They have no shame of interest in treating children as the future of this work no matter where they come from.

Gail Denise Perry · November 22, 2019 at 12:59 pm

With no point of reference to this photo, you don’t know what transpired here. We know what happened at Auschwitz, but there is nothing here to show what is happening at the camps. For all we know, these are donated items that are here for the children and adults who made the trek. I’m sorry, I;m not buying that our border patrol is that corrupt. Perhaps on the Mexican side of the border it is. We can’t just be inflamed by a photo that has no reference or evidence to support these allegations
.

    Mercedes Jenouri · November 23, 2019 at 2:59 pm

    So deny, deny, deny. Your choice.

      Amy · November 30, 2019 at 9:51 pm

      That’s the problem with bias, you can’t or choose to not believe atrocities

      Wayne Boone · December 1, 2019 at 12:47 pm

      As corrupt as this administration is, you can’t believe that our Border Patrol can’t be? Seriously?

      Natus Dyer III · December 1, 2019 at 7:35 pm

      Denial is an American institution for over 400 years..
      This treatment was demonstrated with the native people of North America, with the African slaves, the Japanese during WW II, now the Mexican. .. why is anyone surprised by this behavior

      Steven · December 11, 2019 at 10:30 pm

      Outstanding comment Gail. We’ve seen the “Auschwitz” photos, what is outside the borders of the “Arizona” photo? It’s a picture of shoes. Where was this taken? Who took it? There is no context provided. Mercedes, what is the source for the numbers you provide?

        Shelby · December 21, 2019 at 2:37 pm

        Soo….despite the truth of what is going on. Your only focus is a photo? Let me get that straight. You know for a fact children are separated and being held and dying but you are worried that this photo of shoes might not be accurate? FFS! The photos of what went on in concentration camps did not get out until AFTER and we have photos and videos of people being squashed in, a boy dying and lying in his own shit, but this is what bothers you??? You have some audacity.

          Samantha · December 29, 2019 at 9:57 pm

          EXACTLY, Shelby. Lets dissect a photo rather than pay attention to the problem. Videos are ignored, and lame argument about pictures are given. Arizona. California. Texas. Where else are immigrant children being held hostage, not getting proper care with people who are not qualified to care for them?

    Scout · November 24, 2019 at 10:17 am

    The photo is just a symbol representation of what is happening. If you want to discount the photo, that is a fair point. The rest reported in this article is establisthed fact. Our border patrol is acting on the orders they have been given by this administration. Some are horrified and have resigned. Forget the photo. Do you dispute the facts? Are you morally ok with the facts reported here?

      William MacEachern · November 25, 2019 at 11:16 am

      $750.00 a day!!!
      Yet it’s reported that these children go without hygienic needs…
      At that price they could be placed in luxurious hotels., meals included…
      But, we are not shocked by our government not insuring that their hygiene is not being looked after. Hell, the most important necessity of a well nurtured child is missing on an hourly basis…LOVE of their parents!!

        Trump · November 26, 2019 at 2:03 am

        Bull shit where are these camps let’s go see for ourselves

          Preston Kincaid · December 4, 2019 at 6:03 pm

          Not that facts really matter to Trump supporters, but here’s your answer: ICE’s FY 2018 budget,

          ICE facilities cost $133.99 a day per adult. According to ICE’s FY 2018 budget, on average it costs $133.99 a day to maintain one adult detention bed. But immigration groups have pegged the number closer to $200 a day.

          But as of April, children have been separated from their parents with much higher frequency, which has led to the creation of “tent cities” to hold thousands of separated children. Those beds cost $775 per person per night, HHS told NBC News.

          The cost to maintain a family bed, which keeps mothers and children together in a family residential center, costs around $319 a day, according to DHS.

        Doris Pelger · November 30, 2019 at 7:59 pm

        Traumata, caused consciously – these kids will fear or hate everything what has anything to do with USA, when they are adults.
        I do not understand that this can happen in a country that proclaims that all its current wars (killing millions of people) to bring freedom and democracy – when they are obviously completely unable to honour human rights and democracy in their own country…

        Jo · January 3, 2020 at 6:42 pm

        Seems we are not learning from the past…

      Nag · December 1, 2019 at 1:33 am

      Forget the photo? No way. The photo is hate speech. They don’t have soap? Jewish children WERE soap.
      How dare you?

      Jessica · December 1, 2019 at 3:07 am

      I’m not okay with this

      Natus Dyer III · December 1, 2019 at 7:41 pm

      Americans have been “MORALLY” OK with this kind of treatment for over 400 years .. but entering the country ILLEGAL IS A CRIME AND A CRIMINAL IS GOING TO ALWAY’S RECIEVE SUBSTANDARD CONDITIONS AND TREATMENT. . I BUT THE BLAME ON THE PARENTS THAT BROUGHT THIER CHILDREN INTO THIS SITUATION BY CROSSING THE BORDER ILLEGAL

      Peter T Pidrak · December 2, 2019 at 11:27 am

      Do you realize this number has been completely disproven.

      It comes from a study from 2015.

      It involves every child held in custody for any length of time.

    LJRoberts · November 30, 2019 at 12:48 pm

    We don’t know what is happening, because Trump’s government won’t allow anyone to know. Senators have been denied entry. Health care workers have been denied entry. If things errefine, we should see pictures, but we don’t. Trump is committing an official crime against humanity and you are not only excusing him, but enabling him.

    Barbara Wilt · November 30, 2019 at 2:21 pm

    So you don’t follow the news that has been talking constantly about the crap Trump and his cronies are pulling against small children. There have been constant news articles about this and lots of photos showing the horrors. Surprising that you don’t deny the Holocaust, too.

    Michael Wilson · November 30, 2019 at 5:30 pm

    gail…what do you base your belief the mexican side of the border would be so cruel as opposed to the american side??

    Doris Pelger · November 30, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    no we are not inflamed by the photo, but by the story behind it. I always thought that looking the other way and “I didn’t know this was happening” was a typical German attitude – I am shocked because you prove: it’s not.

    Geri · November 30, 2019 at 10:01 pm

    Such a good little complicit Trumpling… 🙄🙄🙄

    They are NO DIFFERENT than Hitler’s Concentration Camps, nor are Drumpf’s reasons any more virtuous. The Fake king just isn’t that far into the process, but he’s stuck to his predecessor’s blueprint down to the smallest detail.

    Soon enough, there will be Death Camps. Then you will begin noticing people inexplicably disappearing from your circle of friends, neighbors, co-workers…

    Hell, maybe even YOU will vanish, Gail. You ARE female. Do you work? Own property? Use birth control? How about standing up and voicing your opinion, having boundaries, expecting respect, or believe you should not have to have sex with any male whose eye you catch at the meat market, which covers anywhere and everywhere.

    But sure, keep your eyes and ears firmly shut. Ignore the screams and protests of those being wronged and oppressed. How unfortunate for you that you lack both historical knowledge, but morals as well.

    Good luck with getting any help when your turn comes around, as it eventually will.

    Emily · November 30, 2019 at 10:49 pm

    Do you know what they called the Germans who stood by and did nothing as the Nazi’s committed their crimes against humanity? NAZIS. History shows no distinction between them because they had to do nothing for the Nazis to be able to do what they did.

      Kathe · December 16, 2019 at 9:49 am

      Do you know where all of this Germans wound up after the war? The high level nazis who ran the camps? In America. Now we’re dealing with their great grand children who’ve been programmed from birth to think this is acceptable.

    Ernesto Aragon · December 1, 2019 at 12:58 am

    Were you PRESENT AT AUSCHWITZ ???

    Jon · December 1, 2019 at 1:46 am

    I agree this is billshit.Show me where you got these numbers from. Do a little research people-you will see that these numbers are completely fictional. There’s nothing even close to the amount of money or children in custody as this report states. Don’t agree with me? Simple… show me where you get these numbers and cite your sources.

    Acab · December 1, 2019 at 4:18 am

    I sure as shit can, we have incarcerated more refugees on a whim of a selfish racist who sits behind the president. His name is Stephen Miller. And he is the worst kind of racist. His ideals are far worse then hitlers. Look him up.

    Ernesto Aragon · December 1, 2019 at 5:17 am

    And how do we know what happened at AUSCHWITZ ??? I wasn’t present were you ???

    Nellie · December 1, 2019 at 12:45 pm

    “Perhaps on the Mexican side” ??? you are delusional. You Americans are a disgrace to the world.

    Catt Riggs · December 1, 2019 at 1:38 pm

    they are DESTROYING RECORDS that they claim never existed —– claim that it is ‘not humanly possible’ to try to track which child was stolen from what mother at what location —- so they SELL THE CHILDREN ——– and you sit and claim it is not wrong if white gods are doing it —— disgusting

    Carolyn M Delvalle · December 1, 2019 at 1:52 pm

    The point of reference is how much money these bastards are making EVERYDAY. 750,000$ per day per person and they have the gaul to refuse basic needs! There are a hell of alot more stories out there that you can read that has these same allegations that have been proven.

    Susan · December 1, 2019 at 3:12 pm

    People have tried to donate items and have been rejected, so even if these are going TO the childrenm it is no lie that this administration has used lawyers to fight against providing basics like soap, pillows, toothpaste, sanitary napkins and more to these children. WAKE UP

    Edward F Wolfe · December 1, 2019 at 3:35 pm

    this article is established fact. Our border patrol is acting on the orders they have been given by this administration. Some are horrified and have resigned. Forget the photo. Do you dispute the facts? Are you morally ok with the facts reported here?

    Maggie Whitley · December 1, 2019 at 5:46 pm

    Oh poor, poor Gail. You are so ensconced in your own racism (before you say you aren’t, please re-read your OWN writing “perhaps on the Mexican side…”) that you can’t even see the symbolism. If you don’t think they are corrupt on their own, let alone with the directives by this shit-for-brains administration, you are just as bad as the rest of them. These are CHILDREN for fuck’s sake.

    tamz · December 1, 2019 at 7:26 pm

    I’m pretty sure the nice German people said and thought the same thing.

    Natural Dyer III · December 1, 2019 at 7:31 pm

    Yes.. the media has evolved from an institution formed to “REPORT” the news into a political weapon that “CREATES” news..
    But this treatment of people is a mainstay in the history and culture of this country .. Slave children were separated striped of everything. Records of them and their attachment weren’t even created to be destroyed.. so YEAH. AMERICA ….THE LAND OF THE RACISM AND THE HOME OF BULLIES

    Rcampano · December 2, 2019 at 3:51 pm

    German people also denied what was happening to undesirables: Jews, gays, Gypsies, etc. They not even smelled in the air the smoke from people burning in ovens. Denied, denied, denied…
    🙄

    Deborah Poarch · December 2, 2019 at 4:14 pm

    I agree with Gail. Click bait images are not enough.

    Bonerhead · December 2, 2019 at 4:48 pm

    It’s sloppy activism. They always do shit like this. It’s like they’re working for Trump. Now the people who believe nothing at all is going on there are going to focus on the shoes.

    Weeping Angel · December 10, 2019 at 6:18 am

    Let’s take a wild guess that you are also a Holocaust Denier, on top of being a Trump supporter…

    Sbrown · December 12, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    Exactly WHAT ELSE do you need to see?? We KNOW horrible things are happening at the border and in these centers, we have seen live reports and heard from border patrol agents who actually give a shit. How far down in sand is your head? Or rather, how far up Trump’s ass is it??

    CHILDREN ARE DYING UNDER OUR WATCH.

    But then again, our government doesn’t give a crap about our own children, why would they care about someone else’s?

    Kyle · December 14, 2019 at 5:21 pm

    I am with you on this one. There are like 5 pairs of expensive Nike shoes in the image on the right. I seriously doubt that these kids are walking across the border wearing Jordans…

      Mandy · January 15, 2020 at 8:48 pm

      You would be wrong. There ARE shops in Mexico and things are cheaper there. Don’t be ignorant. I grew up in a border town and to assume that those kids have never received a name-brand pair of shoes is ridiculous. We’re not better than them.

    Kathe · December 16, 2019 at 9:46 am

    It’s not “border patrol” it’s CoreCiciv. It’s the prison system that is managing the camps on the border. The prison system was failing because of the changing drug laws and needed a new population. They went South and found them. Promised them better lives if they sought asylum in the US. Then incarcerated them. Now they’re charging the American people DAILY for each of them. We are paying to keep innocent people in jail because CoreCivic donated a million to Trump’s campaign.

    Rhonda Hudson · December 21, 2019 at 7:30 am

    Thank you, Gail Denise Perry. My first thoughts as well.

    Lilith Mooney · December 21, 2019 at 12:07 pm

    They often asked after the war, how did the German people not know what was happening and try to stop it?…..well, your comment illustrates why Gail, they just didn’t want to know, so they pretend it wasn’t happening.

    Nancy N · December 21, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    There are more references and evidence to the allegations that we are illegally detaining immigrants but you won’t look at it thru your racist eyes. The United States has become one of the terrorist countries in the world. If you don’t agree, just read news from ANYWHERE in the world. We have lowered our standards to the Nazi standards and that is unacceptable with the knowledge of history and just plain humanity. This administration is corrupt from the top down. Read and investigate for yourself on something other than Fox news.

    Barbara Scott · December 29, 2019 at 4:45 pm

    Then read paper, watch stations other than FOX!!! If you see NO PROBLEM then you are PART of the problem.

    Jessa · December 29, 2019 at 11:09 pm

    You can believe that officers on one side of the border are corrupt, but not the other? Think about this.People are people, and all are influenced by their employer and government.

    Andrea Ayon · January 14, 2020 at 11:24 pm

    Have you personally been there to say it’s not true? I know people going through this and your ignorance is the reason shit like this happens. Just because you don’t see it and it’s not happening to you doesn’t make it false. You sound really idiotic.

    chuckthemonkey (@chuckthemonkey) · January 15, 2020 at 8:17 pm

    It’s not border patrol who is securing the child detention centers. Do you have any interest in finding out if it’s true, or only if someone else goes and finds out and shares what they know so you can remain skeptical!?

Bonita Sanchez · November 23, 2019 at 10:17 am

If only we could add these atrocities to 45’s “impeachable offenses”! Damn!

    Mercedes Jenouri · November 23, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    One way or the other, he shall pay. Just watch.

      Joyce L Stillman · November 27, 2019 at 5:50 am

      Mercedes, you are an optimist. besides he can NEVER pay enough to compensate for what he has done to these children’s souls.

      Eveline · November 30, 2019 at 10:27 pm

      I hope so

    Jessica · December 1, 2019 at 3:08 am

    There’s always charging him with war crimes

    Nancy Jernigan · December 1, 2019 at 6:08 pm

    The senate will never convict him. WE MUST VOTE BLUE! Enough of us MUST VOTE BLUE!

Maria Fowler · November 30, 2019 at 9:16 am

I think we would care more if these were animals instead of brown people! How far we have fallen.

Maya Chafe · November 30, 2019 at 7:52 pm

Please read The Invisible Wall by Rachel Morris in the Highline/Huffpost, published on 11/21/19 to find out how this has happened.

Holly · November 30, 2019 at 9:24 pm

That’s about the same amount per MONTH SSI gives to people who are to sick to work, and couldn’t pay enough into socal security to get SSD. Just for reference. Think about that for a moment.

Eveline · December 1, 2019 at 2:28 am

if you want to know what you would have done during holocaust look at what you are doing now. You are doing it now.

sharon · December 1, 2019 at 12:11 pm

I think about this every day while impeachment hearings are going on. This is worse than anything this administration (Trump) has ever done and it continues to go unaddressed. Where is the outrage?

A.D · December 1, 2019 at 3:32 pm

Why weren’t you upset when President Obama introduced this way to handle children and illegal immigration ? I dont agree with any child in a cage but have been upset from the start but it fell upon dead ears because you all were in love with him? I would also like to see the numbers from a legitimate source, not just writing in a blog.

Sylvia de Swaan · December 1, 2019 at 6:07 pm

i hope so…this unecessary cruelty

Cathy · December 1, 2019 at 6:30 pm

Why is this not I. The news anymore !! This is horrible and the press is complicit

Magdalena McCormick · December 1, 2019 at 9:20 pm

My ulcerative colitis acts up when I read these reminders. Mostly, of course, for the children. Secondly, because I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE IT STOP!!!!!

Eve · December 2, 2019 at 12:45 am

Exact locations of detention centers where children are held?

Beth · December 2, 2019 at 11:00 am

Sickening to think, these detention centers are privately owned but yet the USA is footing the payroll. Trump’s buddies are lovin’ it.

Peter T Pidrak · December 2, 2019 at 11:30 am

I am amazed that this article was written. Days before the date in the byline the facts about this came out.

That number is from 2015.

The only number we have for President Trump is significantly lower.

It involves every child held by the government over the course of the year.

K · December 2, 2019 at 4:52 pm

The wrong people are in charge. You all disconnected yourselves.

Sam · December 3, 2019 at 11:14 pm

Wow. I bet white American men and those nasty pesky border patrol pedo guys lured those kids from the comfort of their homes from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. I can almost bet they were yanked away from their parents for a massive conspiracy to enslave them and encage those poor immigrant children for the purpose of torturing them and gas them like the poor kids of Auschwitz. its Auschwitz the Sequel. Oh my God, such horror. Why isn’t this reporter flocking to the Gates and reporting these atrocities with videos and actual pictures. Oh Noooo. SMH 🤦🏼‍♀️

Liz Butler · December 21, 2019 at 12:46 pm

Eh, surely the amount of pay mentioned, $750 a day, an enormous amount, is per employee not per child detained. Therefore the whole of the article’s facts and figures are called into question. It is a pity if a disgusting abuse of children and other people is made less credible by an exaggerated report.

    Daniel_E · December 21, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    Liz Butler: There is no exaggeration. No employee of these concentration camps is paid $750.00 dollars per day. $750.00 dollars is the overall cost of detention – food, salaries, transportation, prison guards, paltry medical services, etc. – PER CHILD.

Daniel_E · December 21, 2019 at 3:09 pm

Yes, the USA is now running concentration camps, to our everlasting shame. But the photo comparison itself is beyond offensive and obscene. The Auschwitz photo is of the shoes taken off the DEAD BODIES OF GASSED Jews. Comparing that to the Arizona photos is spitting on the (mass) graves of those Auschwitz victims.

Eva Dixon · December 26, 2019 at 9:52 pm

Well, if I haven’t been upset about anything this year, I am now. I resent to compare to Auschwitz to Arizona, and I do not care about the reason behind it. Somewhere among those shoes in Auschwitz is 14 pairs of my grandparents, my aunts, uncles and their families shoes. They all went to take a “shower” and ended up in the crematorium. This is a total disrespect of those who perished during the Holocaust of WWII. While there were other events that should consider as Holocaust, such as the Armenian massacres/race related killings and there was also Rwanda, nothing could be compared as what has taken place in Auschwitz, Dachau, Mauthausen, Bergen Bergen, and the list goes on and on.
