Quit arguing about what to call the migrant camps near the border. Children are dying. Don’t look away.

“At another Border Patrol station in McAllen, Texas, attorney Toby Gialluca said all the children she talked to last week were very sick with high fevers, coughing and wearing soiled clothes crusted with mucus and dirt after their long trip north. ‘Everyone is sick. Everyone. They’re using their clothes to wipe mucus off the children, wipe vomit off the children. Most of the little children are not fully clothed,’ she said.”

ABC News also obtained a medical declaration from board-certified physicians who visited two border patrol holding facilities in Texas two weeks ago. In that declaration, physician Dolly Lucio Sevier wrote: “The conditions within which they are held could be compared to torture facilities.”

The children were experiencing extreme cold temperatures. They were in holding areas where the lights were left on 24 hours a day. They weren’t able to wash their hands. Teen mothers weren’t able to wash out bottles for their babies.

Sevier wrote that all the children she saw at the facilities showed signs of trauma.

And what have we been doing? We’ve been debating whether it’s fair to call these places concentration camps. The Justice Department last week had an attorney in court actually arguing that the government shouldn’t be required to provide these children — children, for God’s sake — with soap or toothbrushes or beds.

Where are the pro-lifers???

They only care about unborn babies, not brown babies.
