Toddlers Facing Judge ALONE…

01) Toddlers Facing Judge ALONE


“As the White House faces court orders to reunite families separated at the border, immigrant children as young as 3 are being ordered into court for their own deportation proceedings, according to attorneys in Texas, California and Washington, D.C.

Requiring unaccompanied minors to go through deportation alone is not a new practice. But in the wake of the Trump administration’s controversial family separation policy, more young children — including toddlers — are being affected than in the past.

The 2,000-plus separated children will likely need to deal with court proceedings even as they grapple with the ongoing trauma of being taken from their parents.

“We were representing a 3-year-old in court recently who had been separated from the parents. And the child — in the middle of the hearing — started climbing up on the table,” said Lindsay Toczylowski, executive director of Immigrant Defenders Law Center in Los Angeles. “It really highlighted the absurdity of what we’re doing with these kids.”

    I share Cenk Uygur’s anger.

    Those who have all the power in the US are yet again totally out of control in committing crimes against humanity. It is absolutely reminiscent of the Nazis when Jewish children were separated from their parents: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/jun/18/separation-children-parents-families-us-border-trump. They (those in power in the US who create so much misery on this planet) need to be brought to heel in very short order.

      You know what’s so sad?…the last two administrations were doing this, also…Though I’m not sure it was exactly this bad…

      …But it was kept on the down low.

        Trumps twitter style reveals the brutal nature of the mechanics of US governance for all to see. Before now, the brutality still existed, but took place beneath the public radar.
