Not nasty enough..
Quote:Parents who have been separated from their children at the US border have reportedly been pressured to volunteer for deportation in exchange for seeing their kids again. A 24-year-old Honduran father who is currently being detained at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Livingston, Texas, told The Texas Tribune on Saturday that he was asked to give up his asylum application and sign a voluntary deportation in order to see his daughter.

Quote:A lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) alleged Tuesday that U.S. border officials told a Guatemalan migrant woman who crossed the border illegally that they would put her daughter up for adoption if she sought asylum. Edgar Salvidar, a senior staff attorney for the ACLU of Texas, told The Daily Beast that the woman crossed the border illegally with her 12-year-old daughter earlier this month. The woman’s husband had abused both of them and they were seeking asylum, Salvidar said.

Quote:A federal judge ruled that US immigration agents must reunite migrant children who have been separated from their parents.Children younger than 5 years old need to be reunited within 14 days of the order, and children 5 years old and older within 30 days. More than 2,300 migrant children were separated after US President Donald Trump's administration began a "zero tolerance" policy in early May. Earlier on Tuesday a cabinet secretary said the US won't reunite migrant children separated at the border unless their parents get asylum or agree to be deported.

Quote:Seventeen states sued the Trump administration on Tuesday over its now-halted practice of separating migrant families that illegally cross the US-Mexico border. The lawsuit seeks to force the government to reunite the thousands of families it separated. The filing is teeming with heart-wrenching stories about traumatized children, including one of a South American boy who allegedly wanted to jump out a window because he missed his family.

Quote:Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin’s ® administration is canceling dental and vision benefits for thousands of people on Medicaid in the state following a judge blocking the state’s Medicaid work requirements. The cancellation of dental and vision coverage for almost 500,000 enrollees in the state’s Medicaid expansion is “an unfortunate consequence of the judge's ruling,” Doug Hogan, a spokesman for the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services, told the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Quote:(My son) is not the same since we were reunited. I thought that, because he is so young he would not be traumatized by this experience, but he does not separate from me. He cries when he does not see me. That behavior is not normal. In El Salvador he would stay with his dad or my sister and not cry. Now he cries for fear of being alone.” — Olivia Caceres was separated from her 1-year-old son in November at a legal point of entry. The boy’s father, who was seeking asylum, remains detained, Caceres said. It took three months for Caceres to get her son back from government custody.

Angelica Rebeca Gonzalez-Garcia was apprehended and separated from her 7-year-old daughter in May. She hasn’t seen her since. She said officers at the border told her she would never see her daughter again, and that she had “‘endangered’ her by bringing her here,” she wrote. “I cannot express the pain and fear I felt at that point,” she wrote. Gonzalez-Garcia said she has spoken by phone to her daughter, who is currently in a shelter and said that she had been hit by a boy, was bruised and had gotten sick there.

They keep getting nastier and nastier..

Quote:Earlier this year, Amy, a sex-trafficking survivor who spent 15 years under the control of violent pimps, walked into a small courthouse in Cincinnati, Ohio, with 105 criminal charges on her record. An hour later, she left with all but two of the charges erased. “For so long I’ve just been seen as a prostitute and a criminal,” said Amy. “Even though I managed to get clean and get away from my trafficker, I haven’t been able to get a job and struggled to find someone who would rent me an apartment and just [allow me to] provide for myself. It’s hard to describe the feeling that now I could get a second chance at life.” Under Ohio’s safe harbour legislation – and similar laws across all states – Amy had the right to request that criminal charges she accrued while she was a victim of human trafficking were expunged from the public record. Yet anti-trafficking advocates across the US are warning that a sudden decision by the Trump administration, effective immediately, to cut all funding for legal representation for survivors like Amy means that many other victims will now struggle to get their expungement cases into a courtroom.

Holiday camp, huh?

Quote:Immigrant parents and children alleged in interviews filed in federal court this week that they faced  mistreatment  while being held in U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities, saying they were often deprived of food, water and sleep. In the interviews, which included some redactions and were filed as part of a lawsuit against the government's detention of minors, the immigrants described not being allowed to shower for days and being given rotten food and dirty drinking water. One woman described as Lidia, 22, said during her interview that she and her 4-year-old son “went hungry the entire time” they were detained in McAllen, Texas. “The only food we were given were sandwiches that were frozen and not able to be eaten,” the El-Salvador citizen said.

Going slow..

Quote:The Trump administration said in a court filing Thursday that it has reunited 364 immigrant children between the ages of 5 and 17 that it identified as being separated from their parents at the border, one week before the deadline to complete the reunifications. The administration said last week that it had identified 2,551 immigrant children who had been separated from their families at the border. Officials said Thursday that they have identified 1,606 of the parents, and have interviewed and cleared 848 of them to be reunited with their children, according to the court filing. Another 272 of the parents still have to be interviewed. More than 200 had been released by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), while 264 remain in ICE custody.

Quote:A 15-month old baby who came to symbolise the US government’s draconian policy of separating migrant families did not recognise his parents when they were reunited in Honduras on Friday, his mother has said. Less than a fifth of children reunited with migrant parents as deadline looms Adalicia Montecinos said her son Johan had “suffered everything that we have been suffering” after spending five months in an Arizona shelter having been separated at the Texas border from his father, who was deported. “I kept saying Johan, Johan, and he started to cry,” Montecinos said. Johan soon warmed to his parents, however, laughing as he received kisses outside a centre where they concluded his final legal paperwork before heading home.
