Hundreds protest outside Homestead detention center

Hundreds protest outside Homestead detention center on Motherís Day
BY MONIQUE O. MADAN

More than 300 people flooded the streets Sunday outside the Homestead detention center for migrant children.

The Homestead shelter, the only facility for migrant children operated by a for-profit [highly profitable] corporation, has been shrouded in secrecy and cloaked in controversy from the moment it was reactivated in February 2018.

Lawmakers scornful of President Donald Trumpís immigration policies have been blocked from visiting. Because it sits on federal land, Floridaís child welfare agency is barred from investigating allegations of abuse.

10. Although it's on Federal land, NONE of the guards are required to pass FBI background checks...

A similar detention camp was opened in Texas. A Christian agency managed the child concentration camp, until they saw exactly what they would be held responsible for running...

These type camps are a paradise for child molesters. Be sure and discuss this reality with ANY Trump supporters that you know!

It's real and it's REAL sick!

3. I hope a lot of Cubans are in that crowd. The Latino population of this country knows what a bad

neighbor we've been toward the rest of the Americas. They've been visibly pissed about our policies and practices for over a century and don't mind showing their support for our "detainees."

I hope Gov DeSantis gets involved.

8. Not enough

 

We need 100 thousand surrounding each concentration camp in every state. We need 2 million surrounding the Senate building and white house. Sit DOWN and shut em DOWN.

9. A poem for the children.

(I've no way to physically protest, so here's a tribute to these innocent children)


The Angel

The Angel sheds tears as she sings
A song so sad that it stings
The children were taken
Their innocence forsaken
The weight of their cries on her wings

How did the world grow so hateful and cold?
Compassion traded for bars of gold
Greed for the tallest tower
Drunk on their lust for power
For coins their souls were sold

Her wings trembled with anger and ire
She confronted the kings of the empire
The men would not yield
Every one of them she killed
Their palaces destroyed by fire
