President Donald Trump signed an executive order on June 20 that will jail immigrant families together in internment camps. The order does not reunite the thousands of children, babies and parents who have already been forcibly separated and jailed (video below).
A lawsuit claims that children incarcerated at the Shiloh Treatment Center in southern Houston have been “forcibly injected with medications that make them dizzy, listless, obese and even incapacitated,” reports Reveal.
Reveal also notes that taxpayers have paid more than $1.5 billion over the past four years to private companies that are warehousing the children even though some of the companies have been accused of sexual and physical abuse.
Aura Bogado, an immigration reporter with Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting, explained this lawsuit to Democracy Now.
