Detroit NAACP: Trump's separation of immigrant kids is like slavery

Rev. Anthony, who has led the Detroit NAACP since 1993, compared what the immigrant kids are facing to what African slaves experienced. He was joined at the news conference by other religious leaders, Latino advocates, and other supporters.

"This process of separation even found its way through the Middle Passage on Southern plantations and in Northern cities," Anthony said. "We are aware of the effect of separation because they still are visibly aware in the stress and trauma existing in our communities today.

Yes, it is. Is this disgusting act of taking children a show of things to come.
Whose children will they take next.
This is horrible. Separating parent and child. He is wicked.
As a mother, I’m hurting for those children and their parents. Can’t imagine anything as horrible as not knowing where my kids are.
Are the safe. Are they eating, are they sleeping. Are they being used as sex slaves. Are they being raped by adults. Are they being sexually exploited..

WHERE ARE THE CHILDREN, TRUMP?

Trumpism, Realized
To preserve the political and cultural preeminence of white Americans against a tide of demographic change, the administration has settled on a policy of systemic child abuse.


At least 2,000 children have now been forcibly separated from their parents by the United States government.
Their stories are wrenching. Antar Davidson, a former youth-care worker at an Arizona shelter, described to the Los Angeles Times children “huddled together, tears streaming down their faces,” because they believed that their parents were dead.

Hundreds of Separated Children Have Quietly Been Sent to New York

Under cover of darkness and in the custody of the federal government, migrant children have been coming in waves to New York, taken from their parents after crossing the southern border.

Even as President Trump signed an executive order on Wednesday ending his administration’s policy of separating parents and children who have illegally crossed the border, the crisis was already spreading to a city some 2,000 miles away.

There are 2,300 migrant kids spread across the US. What happens to them next?

But it's not clear when -- or if -- at least 2,300 children taken from their parents under the prior policy will be reunited. Neither is the long-term plan for families who are detained jointly.


Will the separated children be reunited?
The short answer is: It's too early to tell.

Migrant children describe abuse, being forcibly medicated at youth shelters: lawsuit

The lawsuit alleges that the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Refugee Resettlement "routinely" places migrant children on psychotropic drugs without parental consent and without telling the kids about the medication "in utter disregard of state laws."

The lawsuit against Attorney General Jeff Sessions was filed April 16 in U.S. District Court in California by the Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law after Sessions announced the administration's "zero tolerance" policy on undocumented immigrants.

Separating Families at the Border Was Always Part of the Plan

President Trump is still trying to avoid responsibility for his administration’s brutal policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the border, but a new report confirms that Trump and his advisers had been considering the extreme measures for as long as they’ve been in power. According to the New York Times, White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller was “instrumental” in convincing the president to enact the policy, which applies a zero tolerance approach to prosecuting undocumented immigrants caught entering the U.S. — even if that means taking children away from their parents in the process.

From slavery to mass incarceration, America has separated families for centuries


In fact, state-sanctioned family separation has a long history in our country and is a widespread practice today.

It began during slavery with the brutal, daily and fully legal practice of buying and selling away children from their parents. About the time slavery was abolished, the government then began the practice of forcibly removing Native American children as young as 5 years old from their families in order to “civilize” them in white boarding schools — a practice that lasted more than 100 years and formally ended only with the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978.

Barbaric’: America’s cruel history of separating children from their parents

A mother unleashed a piercing scream as her baby was ripped from her arms during a slave auction. Even as a lash cut her back, she refused to put her baby down and climb atop an auction block.
But the child was torn from the arms of its mother amid the most heart-rending shrieks from the mother and child on the one hand, and the bitter oaths and cruel lashes from the tyrants on the other.”

We’ve Had Family Separation Before—It Was Called Slavery and Jim Crow
And now, as separated families try to reunite, it’s worth thinking back on black American families’ attempts to do the same after the Civil War.
