Shocking Photos of Immigrant Children Being ‘Warehoused’ on US Border Released
Breitbart has released shocking images of children being warehoused on the US-Mexico border by the federal government, showing the disturbing conditions created by a growing humanitarian crisis along border states.
According to The New York Times, almost 50,000 children have been picked up by border patrol crossing into the US without their parents since October.
A Department of Homeland Security official said “the influx of unaccompanied children across the southwest border has resulted in an urgent humanitarian situation. The President has directed Secretary Johnson to establish an interagency Unified Coordination Group to ensure unity of effort across the Administration in responding effectively to this humanitarian situation. This effort, led and coordinated by FEMA, is quickly marshaling resources across the government to provide humanitarian relief to affected children.”
California Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard called the conditions that the children have to endure at these facilities are “deplorable.”
“I am terribly concerned about the deplorable conditions in which these children are being held. I am troubled by the fact that the photos show children’s faces, especially since many of these children may be victims of trafficking or other serious crimes. Still, these are important photos, and they tell a tragic story: our country is facing a child migration crisis,” she said.
“Tens of thousands of Central American children are arriving at our southwest border having fled life-threatening conditions in their home countries. On their way to the United States, many of these vulnerable young people are physically abused or sexually assaulted. When they reach our border, our government has the moral responsibility to treat them with care and compassion,” she added.
