You’ve all seen the fake pictures of how children separated from their parents are detained in America — you know, locked in cages and treated like dogs at a shelter.
Of course, those pictures are mostly from the Obama era during the migrant crisis or are faked, but shhh. Don’t let facts get in the way of a good tweet (or rant in the press room).
Children - Parents - Well - Reporters - Courtesy
So, how are children treated when they’re removed from their parents? Well, reporters found out, courtesy of a tour of one of the facilities in which they’re housed, the Southwest Key Programs residential center in El Cajon, California, which operates under contract with the Department of Health and Human Services.
According to Breitbart, whose reporters were allowed on a tour of the facility Friday along with other media, El Cajon is decidedly “not a ‘cage.’ It is a comfortable facility providing lodging, meals, clothing, medical care, education, recreation, counseling, and other services.”
Facility - Street - Neighborhood - Beds - Boys
“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.”
The facility’s goal is for the child to leave with a legal guardian. According to Breitbart, most of the children at the facility arrived at the border without adults, while only 10 percent were separated from adults who were arrested when they illegally crossed the border.
Video - Facility - Note - Audio - End
Here’s video of the facility. (Note: Audio doesn’t come in until near the end):
And here are some photos. Like the video, they were provided by the HHS.
Bit - Spartan - Cages - Anything
It’s all maybe a bit dorm-room spartan, but it’s certainly not cages or anything...
