[Politics] Status of Trump's Camps

As the name states, where are we at with them?

Haven't heard about them in months but we all know how news cycles work. It's likely everyone has lost interest rather than the problem being solved

Are conditions better? Is it still clogged? Are people being released and where?

Thanks

Had no idea that was an editable box. I should stop doing this on a phone and use a computer. Probably would have been clearer.

Disease and misery.

There have only been about 150 diagnosed cases of mumps outbreak throughout the entire country since 2015. Yet according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there have been 921 new cases of mumps in less than a year, in or around immigration facilities. Since October of 2018, 890 immigrants and 31 detention facility employees have come down with mumps at 57 Customs and Border Protection (CBP) or Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facilities in 19 states, the majority of them operated by private companies.

A highly contagious viral infection that most commonly affects a person's salivary glands, mumps can now be prevented with a vaccine. Although it is not usually a serious illness in children, it can cause complications in adults, including temporary or permanent sterility. Pregnant women with mumps are at high risk of losing the fetus in the first trimester.

While ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said in response to the CDC's report that medical professionals at detention facilities screen all new detainees within 24 hours of their arrival, a CPB spokesperson said, "In general, due to the short-term nature of CBP holding and the complexities of operating vaccination programs, neither CBP nor its medical contractors administer vaccinations to those in our custody."

The CDC said most detainees caught the virus while in the custody of ICE or another U.S. agency. ICE confirmed earlier this summer that of the 5,200 detainees in quarantine across those centers, around 4,200 are for exposure to mumps. As immigration advocates have explained, such large-scale quarantines have served to restrict access to legal services for migrant detainees.

That in fact seems to be the goal. Trump and his supporters have made clear their goal is to discourage immigration by making an example out of this current wave of migrants. The administration announced last month that it would not provide flu vaccines to families locked away in overcrowded migrant detention facilities, citing "the short-term nature of CBP holding." According to a letter sent to Congress last month, three migrant children in U.S. detention facilities have died of the flu since December.

Trump's camps are already vectors of dangerous disease, and are on the way to becoming death camps by inaction.

In addition to children being held for weeks longer than they legally should be in these overpopulated detention centers, infants are being cared for by children as young as eight or nine. As has been widely reported, detainees are denied basic medical care and access to items of personal hygiene, including toothbrushes and soap. According to a recently filed lawsuit, toilet paper is only replenished once per day and teen girls are only given one sanitary pad a day while on their periods, and have been forced to sit in underwear and pants stained in blood. The DHS Office of Inspector General has previously reported "nooses in detainee cells, overly restrictive segregation, inadequate medical care, unreported security incidents, and significant food safety issues."

Nah see everything's fine now because Steve King drank the toilet water the refugees are being forced to drink and said it was pretty good

Everything is ok cuz they decided to leave the camp, even though they have zero family and economic support. Also, all the deaths were actually preexisting health conditions, so it didn't matter that their conditions were worsening due to denial of basic hygiene and a horrible environment.

Well, they passed emergency funding to deal with, you know, the emergency people were pretending Trump made up. And wouldn't you know it, children stopped dying at the border. Funny how that works.

And then they gave the courts the middle finger and opened up family detention facilities

The last child death related to CBP was in May.
Emergency border funding passed in June
Then they replaced the Flores settlement and reopened family detention facilities.

Edit: the last one's not necessarily related, it's just relevant if someone genuinely wants an update on the border.
