Listen to Children Who’ve Just Been Separated From Their Parents at the Border — ProPublica

quote [ ProPublica has obtained audio from inside a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility, in which children can be heard wailing as an agent jokes, “We have an orchestra here.”

The desperate sobbing of 10 Central American children, separated from their parents one day last week by immigration authorities at the border, makes for excruciating listening. Many of them sound like they’re crying so hard, they can barely breathe. They scream “Mami” and “Papá” over and over again, as if those are the only words they know. ]

Trump and his supporters and enablers are a bunch of evil fucks who must be defeated.

In before the usual suspects announce that we're all only massively opposed to shunting kids into concentration camps because of the "SE echo chamber".

I've seen jackasses online insisting that Obama did the same thing (or worse - neither is true) and that the Dumpster admin has no choice because keeping the parents and children together would mean imprisoning children (which this somehow isn't). Meanwhile Fox is arguing that the Nazis were trying to keep the Jews in, not out, so totally different. Also, not cages, just rooms divided by chain-link fences, also totally different.

When you need to argue semantics about why what you're doing is different from concentration or Japanese internment camps, it's time to take a hard look in the mirror.

I thought it was common knowledge that Trump is taking the children for pizzagate.

I thought that was CROOKED HILLARY. The Dems are the ones forcing Trump to take the children, why don't they change the law?

If there's one thing the Trump administration is known for it is keeping in line with the structure the Obama administration set up.

Remember years ago how Republicans were wailing about how Obama was separating families and keeping children in cages? Trump could cater to that base and put an end to this, but, no, he believes in adhering to precedent.

It is only a matter of time before they will be bused out to Alaska's DARPA death camps and all the while Trump and his fellow war criminals will be spouting "fake news!" as the children burn.

Man, those crisis actors are getting good. I would've sworn those were actual children.

Such a great country.
USA you are a sad and pathetic group of sickos.
Don't give me crap about this being "the Republicans" or "Trump"
if this doesn't make you take to the streets and change
you are just as guilty.

I'm not American but I'm willing to shoulder my share of the blame because the underlying problem is that humans are rubbish. Honestly, the highs are great, the lows are just so much more common.

If i were México, i would secretly require visas for all American women with children entering the country for security reasons. Then I'd separate children from mothers and detain them in a tent city in the parking lot of Mexico city's airport. I would then start to ask the rest of the world to limit visits and immigration by Americans to the rest of the world.

Not a bad idea.
Of course being Canadian I woudl have to insist we do the same.
Perhaps we could "do a deal" and fix the NAFTA mess at the same time.
Trump loves deals.

It's a B3ta link but HappyToast over there makes the most pertinent gif of the day.
