Lawyers and medical providers who have visited the Rio Grande Valley shelters described play rooms of crying preschool-age children in crisis. The government also plans to open a fourth shelter to house hundreds of young migrant children in Houston, where city leaders denounced the move Tuesday. ... Decades after the nation’s child welfare system ended the use of orphanages over concerns about the lasting trauma to children, the administration is standing up new institutions to hold Central American toddlers that the government separated from their parents. If Rachel Maddow is crying, America is in trouble Rachel Maddow is one of the coolest political analysts in media. If she is crying on the air, what we are witnessing in the United States is a level of cruelty and inhumanity that should have people on the streets. DO NOT NORMALIZE WHAT TRUMP IS DOING. THIS IS NOT IMMIGRATION POLICY. A policy is not human rights violations and child abuse. This is bigger, and if America could get outraged about the Bush torture program, millions of people should be on the streets threatening a political revolution if Trump does not end this policy.
