Thousands of Immigrant Children Said They Were Sexually Abused in U.S. Detention Centers, Report Says
The federal government received more than 4,500 complaints in four years about the sexual abuse of immigrant children who were being held at government-funded detention facilities, including an increase in complaints while the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant families at the border was in place, the Justice Department revealed this week.
The records, which involve children who had entered the country alone or had been separated from their parents, detailed allegations that adult staff members had harassed and assaulted children, including fondling and kissing minors, watching them as they showered, and raping them. They also included cases of suspected abuse of children by other minors.
From October 2014 to July 2018, the Office of Refugee Resettlement, a part of the Health and Human Services Department that cares for so-called unaccompanied minors, received a total of 4,556 allegations of sexual abuse or sexual harassment, 1,303 of which were referred to the Justice Department. Of those 1,303 cases deemed the most serious, 178 were accusations that adult staff members had sexually assaulted immigrant children, while the rest were allegations of minors assaulting other minors, the report said.
From bad to horrible..
Don't think the US can even begin to claim some "higher moral ground"........
‘Loud and obnoxious Trump voter’ admits that the president should shut up about McCain and get off Twitter
Of course. Even if we ignore counter-tariffs (which only exacerbated the problem), Trump's tariffs would naturally have reduced imports, which as a result strengthen the US dollar and consequently reduce exports. Add inefficiency to that, and that could actually reduce exports more than it increases imports.
Add counter-tariffs to that, and that just makes the situation worse.
Now is Trump smart enough to understand this or will he just increase tariffs even more so as to further agravate the situation?
Meghan McCain says she's 'emotionally exhausted' having to address Trump's comments, doesn't expect 'decency' from president's family
McCain says she's "emotionally exhausted" from having to respond to Trump.
An "emotionally exhausted" Meghan McCain again defended her father against President Trump Thursday on "The View," saying she doesn't "expect decency" from his family.
“I don’t like coming here every day and having to do this, as all of you know. It’s extremely emotionally exhausting,” she said at the top of the show.
"I don't expect decency from the Trump family," she added.
