Tuesday Rally: Where are the Children?
May 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Where Are The Children?
We can’t imagine any person with a heart reading about the treatment of these vulnerable children and not wanting to do something about it.
Details include customs and immigration officials kicking and punching children, using stun guns on children, verbally abusing children, denying children medical attention, denying children permission to stand or move freely for days, threatening children with torture or sexual abuse, and actually sexually abusing children.
For perspective, an ACLU immigration rights lawyer called it “unprecedented…the worst thing I’ve seen in 25+ years of doing this civil rights work.”
It’s not just abuse, by the way. Federal Agencies have “lost” nearly 1500 children who were taken from their parents at the border. While some of the children may simply be unaccounted for, there’s also evidence that they’ve been turned over to sex traffickers. By our own government.
