REPORTS ON THE US CONCENTRATION CAMPS

Do you know that migrant children are being held in detention centres in the US under the most horrifying conditions; no beds, toothbrushes or soap? Not sure what we’re on about ? Here is the 411; About a year ago, Donald trump implemented a zero-tolerance policy where illegal immigrants who were caught, were sent to federal jail for weeks before seeing a federal judge, who would then determine whether they could stay in the USA. This inevitably led to the separation of children from their parents, and children were sent to these appalling detention centres ( more like concentration camps). It’s been reported that since last year, at least 7 children have died in these centres. Check out the article on Refinery 21 here. Wondering why this is important?
