Welcome to the 2018 internment camps. Because whoever pays attention to history anyway?

In shelters from Kansas to New York, hundreds of migrant children have been roused in the middle of the night in recent weeks and loaded onto buses with backpacks and snacks for a cross-country journey to their new home: a barren tent city on a sprawling patch of desert in South Texas.

Until now, most undocumented children being held by federal immigration authorities had been housed in private foster homes or shelters, sleeping two or three to a room. They received formal schooling and regular visits with legal representatives assigned to their immigration cases.

But in the rows of sand-colored tents in Tornillo, Tex., children in groups of 20, separated by gender, sleep lined up in bunks. There is no school: The children are given workbooks that they have no obligation to complete. Access to legal services is limited.

These midnight voyages are playing out across the country, as the federal government struggles to find room for more than 13,000 detained migrant children — the largest population ever — whose numbers have increased more than fivefold since last year.

The average length of time that migrant children spend in custody has nearly doubled over the same period, from 34 days to 59, according to the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees their care.

Also, keep in mind that the millions of dollars of taxpayer money needed for these draconian policies are being drained from various programs, like FEMA, Head Start, HIV/AIDS research, and even cancer research. 

Because, hey there is nothing as important to this administration than breaking up immigrant families and putting their children into hastily constructed prisons.

But whatever you do, don’t call them racists. They hate that.

    And what are they doing with these immigrant children, who have not committed crimes, when they turn 18? Are they going to deport them automatically? Transfer them to prisons? Educate then so that they can become American citizens and be gainfully employed? Has anyone, in the administration of dunces, ever thought about what the future will hole for these kids? And what if there’s some kind of monster storm in South Texas, where hurricanes can devastate from the east or the west and where tornadoes are also possible? Just how safe are these children?

    the children were moved “under the cover of darkness” and with almost no prior warning
    They were roused from sleep in the middle of the night so they would be “less likely to try to run away” and loaded onto buses bound for the sprawling tent city in Tornillo, a border town in El Paso County.
    “That’s almost as many people as the nearby town of Tornillo itself,”

    OT?
    “The 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise meaning it never ended. We are the solution that heals.” As to what he means … he’s vowed to explain further on Monday’s “TMZ Live.”

    “”There’s nothing more maddening than debating someone who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue,” actor Chris Evans wrote while retweeting the controversial rapper. “The level of unapologetic conjecture I’ve encountered lately isn’t just frustrating, it’s retrogressive, unprecedented and absolutely terrifying.”
    Singer Lana Del Rey responded in the comments on West’s official Instagram account.
    “Trump becoming our president was a loss for the country but your support of him is a loss for the culture,” she wrote. “I can only assume you relate to his personality on some level. Delusions of Grandeur, extreme issues of narcissism – none of which would be a talking point if we weren’t speaking about the man leading our country.”
    “If you think it’s alright to support someone who believes it’s OK to grab a woman by the p**** just because he’s famous-then you need an intervention as much as he does – something so many narcissists will never get because there just isn’t enough help for the issue,”

    OT? “Vote ’Em Out” on Saturday at a massive rally for Democratic Senate hopeful Beto O’Rourke in Austin, Texas.” “Roughly 55,000 people attended the rally”
