A migrant mother said her 14-month-old son was “full of dirt and lice” after being separated from his family for months by the Trump administration.

Olivia Caceras’s claims are included in a lawsuit against the Trump administration’s immigration policy separating families that was filed by 17 states and the District of Columbia, PBS News Hour reported Thursday.

Caceras’s testimony is one of many in the nearly 1,000-page court filing.

Caceras said she was separated from her son for roughly 12 weeks before they were reunited.

“He continued to cry when we got home and would hold on to my leg and would not let me go,” Caceras said in her testimony, as reported by PBS. “When I took off his clothes, he was full of dirt and lice.”

“It seems like they had not bathed him the 85 days he was away from us,” she added.

The administration would not comment to PBS on the allegations because of pending litigation.

Just when you thought our treatment of these people could not be more shocking. 

I hope this lawsuit hits the Trump Administration right where it hurts and forces them to start treating these people, well like people.

    Immigrant children detained in Virginia facility say they were beaten while handcuffed and left nude in concrete cells

    …The abuse claims against the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center near Staunton, Virginia, are detailed in federal court filings that include a half-dozen sworn statements from Latino teens jailed there for months or years. Multiple detainees say the guards stripped them of their clothes and strapped them to chairs with bags placed over their heads.

    “Whenever they used to restrain me and put me in the chair, they would handcuff me,” said a Honduran immigrant who was sent to the facility when he was 15 years old. “Strapped me down all the way, from your feet all the way to your chest, you couldn’t really move. … They have total control over you. They also put a bag over your head. It has little holes; you can see through it. But you feel suffocated with the bag on.”

    In addition to the children’s first-hand, translated accounts in court filings, a former child-development specialist who worked inside the facility independently told The Associated Press this week that she saw kids there with bruises and broken bones they blamed on guards. She spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to publicly discuss the children’s cases.

    I need to see many people go to prison for this and many other crimes against humanity.

    Prison. Not just jail. These are people who have no business circulating around normal folk.

        Actually he should round up every American expat who are there simply by flying and not leaving and put them in camps in the hot desert sun outside of Juarez, quite close BTW where children are being kept in tents near Fabens Tx. He should separate by sex and age, he should seize all homes purchased by these “illegal immigrants”.
