Trump Is Herding Immigrant Kids Into Concentration Camps After Ripping Them From Their Families
Remember that shameful time when we shoved Japanese-Americans (or seemingly anyone whose eyes were even slightly slanted) into concentration camps? Apparently, those were part of the “great” America Trump wants to bring back. This time, however, his target is immigrant children. Yes, children.
Recently, the Trump administration announced that they would be ripping undocumented immigrants’ kids from their arms as soon as they crossed the border and separating them from their families — and if you were wondering what they were going to do with the kids after that, the absolute worst things going through your head weren’t nearly bad enough.
The Washington Post reports that Trump is preparing to take those children whom he ripped from their families and shove them into Kiddie Koncentration Kamps — and he’s forcing our men and women in the armed forces to participate in what is perhaps his most indecent act yet.
The children will be shoved into warehouses on our military bases according to Defense Department communications. If this seems to horrible to be true, plans are already moving forward for Department of Health and Human Services personnel to visit military installations in Texas and Arkansas to evaluate their suitability for the camps.
This frightening and Hitlerian decision is, according to Trump administration officials, intended to halt what they view as a “sharp increase in the number of families crossing the border illegally this spring, many of whom are Central Americans seeking asylum,” the Post reports.
“If you’re smuggling a child, then we’re going to prosecute you, and that child will be separated from you, probably, as required by law,” Attorney General and former Keebler Elf Jeff Sessions announced in a speech last week.
“If you don’t want your child separated, then don’t bring them across the border illegally” Sessions says. “It’s not our fault that somebody does that.”
While President Obama used military installations to shelter immigrants who were, like these children, fleeing violence in their own countries, he did not rip them from their families and he actually intended to help the kids. Trump and his goons’ own statements show that the intent here is punishment rather than assistance.
Trump supporters have previously referenced our super-awesome concentration camps for Japanese-Americans when talking about Muslim registry and internment. Many among us, including so-called “liberals,” said that he’d never actually do anything like that.
Now he’s doing it with children.
