    PHOTOS: Inside Shelter for Illegal Alien Children Separated from Parents

    PHOTOS: Inside Shelter for Illegal Alien Children Separated from Parents




    June 15, 2018

    Joel Pollak

    The Department of Health and Human Services hosted Breitbart News and other media on a tour of a facility in El Cajon, California, on Friday where migrant children are being sheltered after being separated from their parents.




    The children are separated from their parents — or, to be precise, from the adults accompanying them, who may or may not be their parents — when their parents cross the southern U.S. border illegally and are caught and detained.



    Previously, under the “catch-and-release” policy, the adults would be released. Under the “zero tolerance” policy of the Trump administration, the adults are being detained and prosecuted. Children cannot be incarcerated with them.



    However, families that arrive together at legal ports of entry and apply for asylum status are generally not split up and are permitted to stay in the U.S. pending the adjudication of their applications (which can take several years).



    Democrats and the mainstream media have accused the administration of separating the children of “immigrants” from their parents and imprisoning them in “cages.” On Thursday, CNN analyst and Playboyreporter Brian Karem shouted at White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “These people have nothing. They come to the border with nothing and you throw children in cages.” None of the reporters in the briefing room corrected him.



    The facility at El Cajon, however, is not a “cage.” It is a comfortable facility providing lodging, meals, clothing, medical care, education, recreation, counseling, and other services.






    It is run by a nonprofit organization called Southwest Key as part of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) Program, run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) in the Administration for Children and Familes (ACF).



    The facility is located on a main street in a quiet, suburban neighborhood. It has 65 beds, occupied by boys ages 6 to 17. The rooms are spare, with three to four beds in each; the boys are responsible for cleaning the rooms and making their own beds. There is an outdoor recreation area with picnic tables and a small soccer pitch.





    There is a classroom area, and English lessons. The goal is “reunification”: letting each child depart with a legal guardian.





    Some 90% of the children at the shelter arrived at the border without adults; the other 10% were separated from the adults accompanying them. Once the children arrive — usually brought by U.S. Border Patrol agents — they are greeted in the “intake” office, where they receive any urgent medical care, are assigned a case worker, and are given food, a shower, and new clothing. They are also given toiletries and lessons in hygiene — literally how to flush a toilet, brush their teeth, and operate the shower, which some of the children may have never seen in their lives.






    The children receive six hours of education daily, which include lessons in English and physical education. The boys interact with girls who are housed offsite and brought to the shelter during the day to access its services.






    They have limited access to telephones to call relatives, both in the U.S. and abroad. They receive therapy, both as individuals and in group sessions. They enjoy field trips to local museums, parks, and the zoo, where they can explore the city beyond the shelter. And they also have social activities, including a recent “prom” for which they dressed up.






    “Cages,” these are not. What is immediately striking about the facility is the enthusiasm and care of the staff who work there. One administrator greeted the journalists on the tour: “Welcome to our home.” The children at the facility seemed genuinely happy, despite their unfortunate circumstances and the trauma of their long journey.



    The real scandal is how the media have portrayed the shelters. When MSNBC’s Jacob Soboroff toured a similar facility this week in Brownsville, Texas, for example, he referred to the children there as being “incarcerated,” which is only true in the same sense that hospital patients, too, are not permitted to leave, for their safety. (One official who had seen Soboroff’s televised report accused him of “flat-out lying” about the facility — such as, for example, reporting on a mural of Donald Trump without noting 19 other presidents were similarly depicted.)



    Southwest Key has operated its facilities — 27 in total, across California, Arizona, and Texas — since 1997, when the U.S. Supreme Court decided in Flores v. Reno that unaccompanied illegal alien minors could not be held in detention facilities. This is not a new problem, even though it took Trump to make the media realize it existed.



    Update: HSS provided a video of the visit:

    Note: the photographs of the tour were provided by HHS after review by officials to ensure the privacy of the children in the shelter. Journalists were not allowed to take their own photos or videos, for the same reason.

    This piece has been updated to add the information about field trips, which was inadvertently omitted.

    I can't believe we're wasting our money on this. Get these rug rats out of here!!!

    There's something these people need to know about the Americans. Truth be told, Americans don't give a crap about other people's kids, they only care about their own, that's the way it's always been and always will be. Unless you're a new born, you'll rot in an orphanage until you're 18. A sad-eyed pit bull has a better chance of adoption than someone else's kids. That's just the way it is unless there's money in it for 'em. So when you listen to these stupid politicians pretending to care about these illegal alien kids when they don't give a hoot about American kids, you know whatever they're up to is dark, sinister, illegally profitable and needs to be shut down and these children and their parents hauled back to where they came from as soon as possible, and their governments notified, no aid, no visas and no trade until they stop this. Period.

    So the ILLEGAL ALIEN parents teach their children very young it is OK to break our laws...to criminally trespass on OUR soil. How to steal and cheat the system. It is a big family enterprise and they are all lying thieves.

    They grow up TAKING from our country with nothing to give back but their thieving ways and their screaming mouths on our soil demanding more from our country.

    SHIP THEM ALL OUT! GO HOME AND WORK FOR YOUR OWN FREE STUFF!

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
