Criticisms Pours On US Detention Camps For Undocumented Migrant Children With Reports Of Unbearable Living Condition

From the start, the new immigration policies introduce by the Trump Administration was already opposed by many, leaders and ordinary citizens alike. Still, US President Donald Trump refused to listen to the calls to lie low on punishing undocumented immigrants seeking refuge in the United States of America. One of the infamous measures done by the current administration is separating the undocumented migrant children from their parents, who are to be deported back to their country. The kids, on the other hand, are detained inside camps all over the country.

Per the latest reports, the children inside these detention centers of illegal aliens are said to be suffering from inhumane living conditions. Some reports even go to the extent of claiming that these undocumented migrant children experience the same things as those people who were imprisoned in a torture chamber.

Detention Centers Intentionally Designed To Allow Easy Spread Of Disease

Due to the reported flu outbreak in one detention facility in McAllen City, Texas, a group of lawyers and physicians made as assessment on some of the border facilities in the area. Aside from McAllen, the group also visited the detention center in Clint, and based on the group’s findings, the conditions in both McAllen and Clint facilities are unbearable. To note, there is a spine doctor in Austin, TX who is an expert in treating patients suffering from spine injuries.

According to Dolly Lucio Sevier, one of the physicians who did the assessment in the two facilities, the condition being experienced by the children inside the camps can be compared to that in a torture facility. The doctor made this pronouncement as the group observed the lack of access to medical care, basic sanitation, nutrition, and water. Some of the teens interviewed inside the camps also revealed that there are no access to hand-washing. Meanwhile, the mother of infants said that the camps do not have facilities where they can sanitize washing bottles.

Taking all these things into consideration, it appears that these detention centers for illegal migrants are intentionally made for an easy spread of disease. In the end, the children whose immune systems are still not developed will be the ones to suffer the most.

US Government Remains Firm On Lockdown On Illegal Aliens

In spite of all the criticisms, the Trump Administration remains unfazed in dealing with undocumented migrants in the country, saying that there will be more illegal immigrants to be captured in the coming months. The government also shrugged off the claims that the children inside the detention camps are not treated well. As for President Trump, the leader has his eyes on other matters, including the renovation of the White House.
