Trump began a zero tolerance policy on immigration, including asylum seekers that legally show up at the border to request asylum. This policy also included, not only detaining adult immigrants, but all thousand of children from age six-month up to 18-years-old, who are taken away from their mothers upon entering the US.
MIGRANT DISEASES, THE TRUTH BEHIND THE HYPE
(The cause, the how, and the why)
How many of your remember Trump saying during the presidential primary that migrants crossing the border from Mexico were bringing deadly disease ridden, filthy living conditions, and their anger towards America that they will ruin your way of life, destroy your cities, kill and rape your family through all of your communities. It turned out to be totally false to a certain point. I live in San Diego right on the border with Tijuana, the second largest city in Mexico with over 5 million residents living there. We interact with legal immigrants, illegal immigrants, and Mexico citizens who cross the border for shopping and entertainment, and none of them are filthy angry diseased ridden people. They are people just like you and me who shop, work, and play in the seventh largest city in the United States. Also, most of the people Trump wants you to believe his stories about are asylum seekers, from South America, fleeing to the United States to escape persecution, and possible death from the government or criminals. That story will be the topic of a later blog, but right now lets stick to what I am writing about.
They keep them in cages and treat them less than what we treat our own animals,, which no human being should be treated like. There has been reports coming out about the abuses, unsanitary, filthy conditions these children were living in. They were kept either in cages, or in facilities containing up to three times the number of people that is the max. The conditions are so bad and overcrowded that some of the children can’t even sleep because there is no room to lay down. They sleep on the concrete floor with only one thin aluminum blanket (some don’t even get one), no soap, toothbrush, toilet paper, clean clothes, no water. There are some that get no medical treatment when they become sick from the over crowding and filthy conditions they are forced to live in. Little children go around in soiled clothes with no diapers for days. The ones that have colds are walking around with dried snot on the sleeves, and urine on their pants. They are feed a daily diet of ramen and frozen burritos micro waved, and bologna sandwiches every day.
So when the reporters visit them, they are seen as dirty filthy diseased ridden angry immigrants mad at the United States. Trump then uses this scenario to prove that he was correct about what he said during the campaign. What he doesn’t tell you is that what he said campaign that they were coming across the border like that, it wasn’t true. This happened to them while being locked up and the responsibility has to be placed on Donald Trump himself. He created this situation as a political move to show his constituents that he was write and everyone else was wrong. Then he uses the pictures and reports from these facilities as propaganda points to end all immigration policies throughout the United States. I could go on and on, but I just wanted to show the truth behind the cause, the how, and the why this has happened.
Bring Back Our Democracy now.
