How will history judge us? This is the most degrading thing I have ever witnessed in my life. As healthcare professionals, we know the psychological effects of Erik Erikson stages of development, the impairments these camps will cause the children. How can we witness something deplorable and not voice our concern?. These are the questions our kids and grandchildren will ask us one day. What did you do when you discovered that the federal government placed kids in cages and took them away from their parents? I am urging every healthcare professional to unite and speak the truth to every media outlet and every level of government, airlines, the bus company since these kids are in different parts of the state.

Before anyone writes anything that I am not a true American, I want to make it clear I love this country. I admire what it stands for, and hope one day it could live up to creed that all men are created equal and endowed to its creator by certain unalienable rights which are "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

I bought this topic back since President Donald Trump stated an alternative fact at a press conference on 4-9-2019.

Others may or may not feel this way, but I’ll be more likely to watch something if some context is given as to what it is.

The first video is Trump denying he started putting in cages.

Ok. So, are you disputing that?

“The photos, taken by The Associated Press, were from 2014, during the Obama administration, but were presented by liberal activists as if they showed the effects of Trump’s immigration policy now. Villaraigosa, Favreau and some others deleted their tweets when the mistake was pointed out.”

Sessions Says 'Zero Tolerance' For Illegal Border Crossers, Vows To Divide Families

Quote

In two speeches before law enforcement officials in Arizona and California, Sessions expanded on the "zero tolerance" policy against illegal immigration he first announced last month.

"If you cross this border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you. It's that simple," said Sessions. "If you smuggle illegal aliens across our border, then we will prosecute you. If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law. If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border."

Now that this system is overwhelmed with unnecessary prosecutions Trump wants to close the border and get rid of judges, right?

I did watch and I was frustrated by the treatment of Kirstjen Nielsen when she was not allowed to respond.  I've never been a fan of how this process works, for either side. Someone gets to pontificate and the person isn't allowed, at that time, to respond.  But the entire session with Kirstjen Nielsen wasn't part of the video so maybe later she was allowed to address the issues.

I thought AG Sessions did a good job of explaining how asylum works.  I'll admit I didn't know the details before watching that video.  It makes sense to me.

As to the characterization of the way cyclone fencing is used . . . it isn't a cage.  In my opinion. 

But this is a complicated issue.  How do you solve illegal immigration?  You cannot just open the borders.  We don't have the capacity to house so many illegal immigrants even though more family detention centers were built starting in 2014, from what I can find.  

And if you look back in time, Obama, Shumer, Clinton & Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer and others were in favor of strengthening our country against the influx of illegal immigrants.  It is pretty interesting to go back and look at video evidence of this. 

I truly think that the hatred of Trump is what spurs this mess on . . . and we aren't making good decisions because of the division and derision in politics now. 

And so people suffer and politicians live in their lofty towers not having a clue.

The picture shows cyclone fencing used to partition off places for beds, etc. 

I dunno if we had more money to spend, we could make actual walls so it looks more like a bedroom than a "cage".  I know we have hundreds, maybe thousands of large tents as well. 

How do you house thousands of illegal immigrants or asylum-seekers?

I THINK you meant to show what happened last year that led to more people trying to cross the border, not less as AJ Session predicted. Am I right?

I meant to show that the zero tolerance policy change, announced by Sessions when family crossings were increasing, created the current humanitarian crisis at the border.  Trump's gut level immigration feelings about cutting foreign aid to the countries that are bleeding asylum seekers, not sufficiently staffing border patrol and suggesting that getting rid of judges demonstrate a cruel and bigoted misunderstanding of the issues.
