"A barely a month old baby was wrapped in a dirty towel and wore a soiled onesie while in U.S. custody. The mother was in a wheelchair due to complications from her emergency C-section. Just awful treatment by border patrol. Reporting by @angelinachapin -- https://t.co/xktvcGEdsh"
""At the airport, he refused to board without the baby. The immigration officers, he said, told him that Constantin would be handed to him once he had taken his seat. But the plane lifted off and the baby never came." Heartbreaking story. https://t.co/IvVtu76Z28"
"NEW: "It wasn't just tears, it was screams." Baby Constantin's caseworker gave me a rare look into what it was like to care for separated children. She had to use puppets and drawings to tell to kids that their parents had been deported without them. https://t.co/maZlSbElga"
The Trump administration argued in front of a Ninth Circuit panel Tuesday that the government is not required to give soap or toothbrushes to children apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border and can have them sleep on concrete floors in frigid, overcrowded cells, despite a settlement agreement that requires detainees be kept in "safe and sanitary" facilities.
"Of these 250 children, 15 had the flu. A sick 2 year old had detained teens caring for him. The children were eating uncooked frozen food. They hadn't bathed or worn clean clothes in weeks. This is a violation of the Flores agreement and the human rights of these children. https://t.co/59k7kqvoly"
