China is building the largest interment camps in the world to house Muslims.

Is this what Donald Trump envisions for America?

In China’s remote western province of Xinjiang, the Chinese government has begun constructing a series of internment camps larger than anything the world currently knows.

Meant to house upwards of a million — and potentially more — of the region’s indigenous Muslim minority, known as Uyghurs, the camps, according to one U.S. commission studying the region, present the “largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today.”

And they’re only just beginning.

Technically called “Concentrated Education Transformation Centers” — with one even named, in a manner that would make George Orwell blush, as “the Loving Kindness School” — the camps span Xinjiang, a region known to Uyghurs as East Turkestan. Unsurprisingly, Chinese authorities have revealed little information about the camps: how many people are being detained, what crimes they supposedly committed, and when, if ever, these camps will be dismantled.

The camps started appearing over the past few years, but details are scarce. Reporting on the region is tightly constricted, and Beijing has made a habit of arresting and disappearing the family members of American reporters who have attempted to cover the topic.

“We heard at the beginning of this year that more than one million Uyghurs are currently in the camps,” Dolkun Isa, the president of the Munich-based World Uyghur Congress, told ThinkProgress. “But it’s already been six months, and we’ve never heard of anyone being released… [There] may be 1.5 million, maybe 2 million, in the camps. We don’t know.”

There are currently about 8 million Uyghurs in China, which means that roughly 10% are already being detained in these camps.

This is incredibly troubling.

But what she be even more troubling to those of us in the US is that Trump is a huge fan of President Xi Jinping, as well as other dictators just like him.

So this could very well be the future that Trump is working toward for this country as well. 

Only in his detainment camps, there will likely be a mixture of Mexicans, Muslims, and journalists.

    The Far Right used to champion the rights of Uyghurs because the Chinese (and others) were slaughtering them on religious grounds. Not any more. Internment camps make the Far Right very happy so long as nobody like them is being interned.

    Hi Sarah.

    May be just me, but I’ve got a bigger issue with white nationalists than I’ve ever had with Muslims.

    If the religious right in this country are so sure of their Christian faith, why the fear about Muslims?
    Seems to me that they’re causing more problems with their Old Testament knee jerk prattle than effecting Jesus’ Sermon On The Mount.
    Have white mass killings overtaken 9/11 death toll yet?
