'Dragging Their Feet': Trump Admin Delays Closure of Texas 'Tent City' for Migrant Children–Again

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

The Trump administration is delaying closure of a Texas "tent city" that houses migrant boys who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border without a parent or were separated from their families under the president's cruel "zero tolerance" policy, according to a CBS News report published Saturday.

Why isn’t the “Homeland” Security Secretary in jail for contempt?

I’m sure Erik Prince is working on a privatized model for background checks as I type. All government activities need to grease the palms of the self-entitled such as himself in his delusional an avarice-centric world.

Crimes against humanity,which include dehumanization, ethnic cleansing, deportations, extrajudicial punishments including kidnappings and forced disappearances, unjust imprisonment, rape, political repression, racial discrimination, and other human rights abuses which may reach the threshold of crimes against humanity if they are part of a widespread or systematic practice.

Take your choice.

And it’s not just the Homeland Security Secretary, it’s the Attorney General, the Health and Human Services Secretary and the President of the United States, and countless others in their servitude.

This administration does everything that they are ordered to do, Reluctantly, and spitefully, slow.

They question any authority but their own.

Many of these children are traumatized for life. Detention may just be the beginning of their ordeal. Human trafficking and slave labor is a global annual $32 billion ‘industry’. It’s a crime…

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the civil servant in charge. He needs to be personally brought before the judge.

Sessions can try the excuse of “I didn’t have enough money to complete the work.” However, the judge could then ask Sessions why he didn’t prioritize this particular work over all of his other programs.

If I were the judge, I’d have Sessions placed in a certain white tent in Texas with an ankle monitor for the duration. I don’t do chain gangs or pink underwear.

According to John W. Whitehead, the average American unknowingly commits three crimes every day. By your logic, we all should (and could be) in “detention” in this era of over-criminalization and over-incarceration. Hopefully you, and many others, will see this steadily
creeping Fascism for what it is; before it’s too late.

Regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religious belief or class; we are in the end all equally members of the human race.

Fun tangential fact: If the current rate of incarceration continues, every single american “citizen” will be in jail within 50 years.

Wait until the polar ice caps melt, the oceans really rise, and the whole world fries. Then you’ll really see immigration. The world needs an immigration policy, now. I don’t think the wars will stop. I don’t think climate change is going to reverse any time soon.
There is no easy solution to masses people who have to leave their homes.

The entire Black Sea is dead. Its predominant life form is one species of jellyfish. Other dead ocean zones are expanding around the Mississippi River Delta and elsewhere.

The Caspian Sea, on the other hand, is not only dead but almost gone, nonexistent, evaporated, a bowl of blowing saline dust.

The use of incarceration on US immigrants who don’t have jobs or education lined up ahead of time is not new, but the increase is new.

My hunch is that some entity, some group, is encouraging them to come. The recent caravan was a quite well-organized affair.
Following the money…

  1. Adults are being sent to prison to help American companies be great again through prison factories paying little for labor.
  2. Many adult immigrants go for the military service option, at a time when service in the military is less popular and the demand for more soldiers by the government remains high. I wonder how young they can do this…
  3. Children are learning to deal with military camp, …, hmm, are we grooming more soldiers?
