Immigrant children draw ‘traumatizing’ cage after staying in jail
Three children aged 10 and 11 years made the above drawing of their stay in a US American detention centre. After crossing the border with Mexico, they were separated from their parents and locked up. This has been happening in the United States for some time, but the imprisonment of children is happening more and more often. After they were released, the children made the drawing.
It was shared with NBC News by the American Academy of Pediatrics. “Children do not belong in Customs and Border Protection facilities, or in any detention facilities“, said Sara Goza, the company’s future president. The association warned earlier about the traumatic circumstances in the centres. “No amount of time spent in these facilities is safe for children.”
Several children have already died in the detention centres. “More children will continue to die if we do not make sure that every child who passes through federal custody is seen by a paediatric-trained medical professional”, said Goza. “I personally toured two CBP facilities and did not encounter a single paediatrician at either one.”
Several Democratic Members of Congress also recently visited the migrant centres. There they saw that migrants had to drink from toilets, were banned from having showers and had to sleep on concrete floors.
This is another drawing by the imprisoned 10-11-year-old children.
