I thought the writings of Charles Dickens changed things. Who would have thought we would be back there again. The article is horrifying.
Maybe I will just quote a little. "Children were regularly woken up at night by guards shining lights into their cells. They were roused each morning at five-thirty. Kids were not allowed to have stuffed animals, crayons, pencils, or pens in their cells. And they were not allowed to take the pictures they had made back to their cells and hang them up. When Hutto opened as an immigration-detention center, children attended school there only one hour a day. Detainees, including children, wore green or blue prison-issue scrubs."
This prison is built for profit. The children are innocent, and their parents may be too. How is this not torture, and how can it be allowed?
Charles Dickens. We need you now.
