Children in hellish Florida, USA prison for immigrating


This 17 February 2019 video from the USA says about itself:

Children Confined In Inhumane Detention Center

Trump doubled the capacity of this center. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“At a detention center in Homestead, Florida, a group of immigrant teens are packed into cold rooms that can hold 70 to 250 kids, given a substandard education and detained for more than six months, according to interviews done by five legal and child psychology experts.

On Feb. 6 and 7, the team spoke with roughly two dozen children to assess the Homestead shelter’s compliance with the Flores settlement, the 1997 agreement in a landmark lawsuit that outlines child welfare standards in government-run detention centers. They told HuffPost the conditions inside the ‘temporary’ shelter at Homestead are troubling and not suitable for any child, especially over a long period of time. ‘These children are in perhaps the most restrictive and least family-like setting possible,’ said Neha Desai, the director of immigration at the National Center for Youth Law, in an email to HuffPost. ‘I spoke with youth that slept in rooms with 100 other kids at night. Some of them have been there for months on end, with no freedom of movement, no privacy, no human contact.'”
