Nearly 2,000 children have been separated from their families. As young children they sleep in a cage with up to 20 other kids and they sleep on foil sheets. Peter Welch quotes, " I just exited the "icebox" it is nothing short of prison. I saw chain link cages full of unaccompanied children while they sat on metal benches." The older kids who are there have to step up and take care of the young children. According to the article, "Separtion at the border: children wait in cages in south Texas warehouse." One teenager told an advocate who visited she was helping care for a young child she didn’t know. She also taught the other children how to change the childs diapers. More than 1,100 people were inside the large, dark facility that was divided into separate wings for unaccompanied children, adults on their own and mothers and fathers with children. A group of congressional lawmakers visited the same facility on Sunday and were set to visit a longer-term shelter holding about 1,500 children – many of whom were separated from their parents. Michelle Brane, the director of migrant rights at the Women’s Refugee Commission, met a 16-year-old girl who had been taking care of a young girl for three days. The teen and others in their cage thought the girl was two years old. These children are traumatized enough so why torture them with signs of this petitions we may be able to help these families at the border but most importantly get these children out of cages and back safe with their parents.
