    Antar Davidson, a former youth care worker, describes what it’s like inside the detention centers (excuse me, "bestest funtime sunshine camps"😉 where migrant children are being held.



    Here's the thing, and this is my own comment: children are dying all over the world. There are children in slavery, children being trafficked for all kinds of reasons that break your heart. Whenever you heard about that it was sad, but you knew the world is a horrible place and you could almost deal with it, hoping that things will get better.

    It is different in these centers. Objectively, these children are better off than the children worked to death in mines and sweatshops, or slaves of boko haram or whatever other horrible gathering of monsters.

    However this hits me harder. Because america was supposed to be better. Because i've been indoctrinated since i was a child (through hollywood and because of what little i remember of communism) that America saves people. That America fights for what is right. That america wasn't supposed to keep little children in cages and tell frightened traumatized children they are not allowed to hug.

    It is time we grow the fuk up.

    You know what is called when someone takes your children and then demands money for their return? Kidnapping and that money is called ransom.

    If you refuse to pay your tax, will you be separated from your children?

    you're gonna use this "argument" everywhere and every time, no matter if people tell you how stupid you are, aren't you?

    And every time you use this idiotic argument because you're a freaking goldfish with no memory persistence, someone will come along to explain that
    1. It was nowhere near this bad.
    2. The problem needs fixing now. The fact that the problem existed before doesn't mean it is fixed or ceases to be a problem in the present
    3. you are taking children away from parents you colossal pricks.

    To quote Joe Rogan, you're an ashole and you're not part of the team.

    People crossing the border with kids in their care get a free pass > kids become a commodity, a ticket, a disposable entry permit.

    "Were More People Deported Under the Obama Administration Than Any Other?
    A record number of people were "deported" from the U.S. during President Obama's
    tenure as president, due in large part to a change in definition."
