There are children in jail in Texas for the crime of being brown. MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff visited a “shelter” for detained child migrants today. “This place is called a shelter but these kids are incarcerated,” he said.
These children are taken from their parents by force. After losing his son in the McAllen, Texas processing center, Marco Antonio Muñoz killed himself. On Saturday, Rep Pramila Jayapal visited 170 women in prison in Seattle:
Some of them said they could hear their children screaming for them in the next room. The children ranged anywhere from one to teenagers.
The facilities are at capacity. Now the administration wants to build prison camps, for children.
ONE THING YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW
Call Senators Feinstein and Harris. Thank them for supporting the Immigrant Family Separation Bill. Ask them to get these children out of prison.
