Trump Administration looking to build tent cities to house immigrant children.

So those internment camps that the Right Wing was flipping out about during the Obama Amdinstraiont, are finally set to arrive. 

Only these are for children.

The Trump administration is looking to build tent cities at military posts around Texas to shelter the increasing number of unaccompanied migrant children being held in detention.

The Department of Health and Human Services will visit Fort Bliss, a sprawling Army base near El Paso in the coming weeks to look at a parcel of land where the administration is considering building a tent city to hold between 1,000 and 5,000 children, according to U.S. officials and other sources familiar with the plans.

HHS officials confirmed that they’re looking at the Fort Bliss site along with Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene and Goodfellow AFB in San Angelo for potential use as temporary shelters.

“HHS will make the determination if any of the three sites assessed are suitable,” said an HHS official.

The aggressive plan comes at the same time that child shelters are filling up with more children who have been separated from their parents. The number of migrant children held in U.S. government custody without their parents has increased more than 20 percent as Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen rolled out the administration’s new policy zero tolerance policy that separates children from their parents who now face prosecution.

The Office of Refugee Resettlement at HHS is responsible for the care of more than 11,200 migrant children being held without a parent or guardian and must routinely evaluate the needs and capacity of approximately 100 shelters, which are now 95 percent full.

And here is how the children are being separated from their immigrant parents:

The undocumented immigrant from Honduras sobbed as she told an attorney Tuesday how federal authorities took her daughter while she breastfed the child in a detention center, where she was awaiting prosecution for entering the country illegally.

When the woman resisted, she was handcuffed, Natalia Cornelio, the attorney with the Texas Civil Rights Project, recalled from her interview with the woman, who had been detained under the Trump administration’s zero-tolerance policy to refer anyone caught crossing the border illegally for federal prosecution.

Since the policy was announced in May, some 500 children have been separated from their parents within the last month, according to Miguel A. Nogueras, an assistant federal public defender for the Southern District of Texas in McAllen, citing an unofficial count by an attorney in his office.

Some parents who are under arrest tell public defenders they don’t know what happened to their children, Nogueras said. Some parents also claim they have been told their children are being taken to be bathed or cleaned up, then the adults don’t see them again.

That is just heartbreaking.

So because we are tearing children out of the arms of their parents in order to send a message to potential refugees that the cost of freedom might be the loss of their own children, we now need to build camps to house them all?

You know when we found out that Trump kept a book of Hitler speeches next to his bed, we all mocked and laughed at him. 

I  am not laughing now.

    Praising neo-nazis, check.

    Attacking the press, check.

    Throwing people unlike yourself into concentration camps, check.

    The comparison is becoming unavoidable.

    The Jews were told the same thing when separated from their kids and elderly parents. We all know what happened then.

    I am appalled, but not surprised. Where is the outrage from all those so called Christians, Mikey Pence are you fine with this? Even the Nazis kept women and children together. What is going to happen when winter comes, let them freeze to death?

    I would say I am ashamed to be an American, however I didn’t vote for the dictator in the WH or any of his disgusting policies.

    Here is what else they have cooked up,I guess trump’s next pardon might be for Melanomia:

    Trump admin to search out U.S. citizens they believe cheated in their naturalization process

    For the next time Donald Trump tries to convince you he supports legal immigration: The AP reports the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)—under the leadership of anti-immigrant director Lee Francis Cissna—is launching an effort to search out immigrants they believe cheated in their naturalization process and then strip them of their U.S. citizenship.

    It’s a process so rare—and extreme—that “most U.S. efforts to strip immigrants of their citizenship focused largely on suspected war criminals who lied on their immigration paperwork, most notably former Nazis.” NAZIS. But these days they’re apparently “very fine people” while immigrants just trying to support their families are the “animals.” And cheaters, apparently……

    One last question, though: will this effort include people who may have worked illegally prior to gaining their citizenship?

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Melania Trump was paid for 10 modeling jobs in the United States worth $20,056 that occurred in the seven weeks before she had legal permission to work in the country, according to detailed accounting ledgers, contracts and related documents from 20 years ago provided to The Associated Press……

    Putting children in tents in the HOT Texas summer–hummm! Who does THAT sound like? Arpaio (sp) comes to mind.

      “Alamance Co. Sheriff Terry Johnson wants to re-enter a partnership with ICE that led to a two-year Department of Justice investigation into his discriminatory actions and orders. Known as the 287 (g) partnership, it would allow Johnson and his deputies to arrest people on suspicion of being undocumented immigrants.

      The DOJ found that between the years of 2007 and 2012, Johnson ordered his deputies to “Go out there and catch me some Mexicans” or “taco eaters.” He also reportedly sent his subordinates a game where users scored points by “shooting Mexican children, pregnant women, and other ‘wetbacks’” while they attempted to cross the border into the United States.”

    Infuriating and sickening. Perhaps people need to start forming protest crowds outside of these facilities.

      Perhaps people should take personal responsibility and stop trying to enter the country illegally, which puts their families lives at risk, long before they even reach the border.

    “White crosses painted on the ground. ‘ “‘Xxx’ marks the spot.”

    The group claims that the crosses are symbols meant to guide human sex traffickers.” “the theory’s proponents see the crosses as more evidence of an international pedophile conspiracy for the benefit of global elites, experts say the crosses are just leftover tools from aerial mapping surveys.

    The crosses are the latest fixation for believers in what they’ve dubbed Operation Backyard Brawl” “Straps on trees that Veterans on Patrol cited as proof of “rape trees,” for examples, turned out to just be materials used to create a lean-to.” “Why would a white ‘X’ be painted on Cemex property, and why, 300 yards away, would there be a child sex-trafficking camp?” “We have not found any evidence of sex trafficking in the area outside of Tucson, or that anything they’ve brought up,”
    “Infowars originally syndicated a story about the sex-trafficking camp, only to delete it hours later. On Friday, Infowars chief Alex Jones denounced the Arizona camp story as a “honeypot” meant to distract from the “real” crimes of the global elite.”
