The Child Migrant Internment Camps Are Getting Worse

We've got to liberate these kids.

Trump Administration Cancels English Classes, Soccer, Ping-Pong, Legal Aid for Migrant Children in U.S. Shelters

According to the Washington Post, the White House had decided to stop providing “English classes, recreational programs, and legal aid for unaccompanied minors staying in federal migrant shelters nationwide, saying the immigration influx at the southern border has created critical budget pressures.” 
The Office of Refugee Resettlement, also know as racist AF, has started discontinuing the money for fun stuff for like soccer, which the administration has deemed “not directly necessary for the protection of life and safety, including education services, legal services, and recreation,” U.S. Health and Human Services spokesman Mark Weber told the Post.

Of course, critical budget pressures.

The Pentagon is asking for a colossal $718 billion for its 2020 defense budget

$9.2 billion of that is for "emergency border funding." So none of that can be diverted to buying some ping-pong tables and soccer balls? Of course not, we have to build a wall.

We need to face facts that these are concentration camps, for children, and we're letting this happen. While Democrats are worried that young people are pulling them too far left, we have children in concentration camps right now. If this isn't enough to convince you, then:

Exclusive: Watchdog finds detainees 'standing on toilets' for breathing room at border facility holding 900 people in space meant for 125

This is utterly inhumane. And our leaders are doing fuck all about it. We could be doing something about this right now but we're not.

I don't know what to do anymore.
