“The Fourth Amendment Doesn’t Apply Here” — U.S. Border Guards Arrest Arizona Immigrant Rights Volunteer

Adlerstein was detained for more than four hours, and though she was not charged, she said CBP officials specifically told her that she was being placed under arrest, cited U.S. law prohibiting human smuggling,

denied her access to an attorney, and informed her that investigators with the Department of Homeland Security would be following up with her as part of an “ongoing investigation.”

 Isolation is being used as a form of punishment in detention facilities for migrants in the USA.

It is also used to push asylum seekers to drop their claims and go back to the danger they were originally escaping from

Documents we reviewed describe ICE placing detainees in solitary confinement for:

—The unauthorized possession of a green pepper

—Consensual kissing

—Improperly sharing a cup of coffee

—Giving haircuts

—Being the victim of a physical assault

Isn't it the Dem party position that there is no crises at the border?????

That the number of migrants trying to enter the USA hasn't dramatically increased?????

‘I Can No Longer Continue to Live Here’

What’s driving so many Honduran women to the U.S. border? The reality is worse than you’ve heard.

 

"....... Honduras, a country that remains in the grip of a rash of violence against women and girls. For some, the answer is simple and disruptive: They have to leave. When exhausted families, mothers toting babies and young women traveling alone arrive at the southern border of the United States, it’s not just gang violence or criminality in general that they’re fleeing.

It’s also : men who beat, assault, rape and sometimes kill women and girls; law enforcement that does little to curtail them; and laws that deny many women who do survive the chance to retake control and steer their own lives. .....

a portrait emerges of a country where day-to-day violence and misogyny collide with restrictive policies to narrow women’s options to a vanishingly small window of possibility—driving them, sometimes, to flee.

A decade ago most border-crossers might have been single men looking for work. Now the majority are families.

 

....Among female migrants, more than half listed violence as their reason for trying to get to the United States. Honduran migrants are more likely than even those from El Salvador and Guatemala to say they’re running away from danger—and from the danger of domestic violence. "

Feds Tell 9th Circuit: Detained Kids ‘Safe and Sanitary’ Without Soap

 

....All three judges appeared incredulous during the hearing in San Francisco, in which the Trump administration challenged previous legal findings that it is violating a landmark class action settlement by mistreating undocumented immigrant children at U.S. detention facilities.

“You’re really going to stand up and tell us that being able to sleep isn’t a question of safe and sanitary conditions?'” U.S. Circuit Judge Marsha Berzon asked ....

Judge William Fletcher also questioned the government’s interpretation of the settlement agreement. 

“Are you arguing seriously that you do not read the agreement as requiring you to do anything other than what I just described: cold all night long, lights on all night long, sleeping on concrete and you’ve got an aluminum foil blanket?” Fletcher asked Fabian. “I find that inconceivable that the government would say that that is safe and sanitary.”.....

“Today we have a situation where once a month a child is dying in [federal] custody,” he added.

“Certainly the Border Patrol facilities are secure, but they’re not safe and they’re not sanitary.” .....

Legal team that recently interviewed over 60 children at Border Patrol station in Texas says a traumatic and dangerous situation is unfolding for some 250 infants, children and teens locked up for up to 27 days without adequate food, water and sanitation.

Lawyers claim infants, children are in dangerous situation at border detention site

“In my 22 years of doing visits with children in detention I have never heard of this level of inhumanity,” said an attorney representing the detained youth.

We need the World Health Organization to assess the conditions of these (detention) centers,

the United Nations to come in and oversee, and eventually, the Hague to prosecute crimes against humanity.

Because our checks and balances have failed us and it's already too late to fix it.

The US Southern border is such a refugee crisis that it looks as though it's being governed by a 3rd World Country led by a ruthless totalitarian dictator.

US Senate passes its own $4.6bn border aid bill

Senate bill resembles the House measure, but has fewer restrictions on how the Trump administration could use the money.

 

".... The Senate action puts House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in a political bind between demands from progressives in her caucus to rein-in President Donald Trump's family-separation practices at the US border with Mexico, which Pelosi has harshly criticised, and an urgent need to provide US agencies with more funding to handle the recent surge in migrants. .........

For purposes of oversight, both the House and Senate bills include provisions ensuring politicians in future will have access to places where migrant children are held. ........

If Mexico deployed some type of border control long time ago, this could had been avoided.  Of course don't blame a man for risking life to swim a FAST MOVING river.

Mexico controlling it's smaller southern border can solve many problems and will be easier..

Mexico says it has deployed 15,000 forces in the north to halt U.S.-bound migration
