Migrant Children Imprisoned in Texas Detail Border Patrol’s “Level of Inhumanity”

“We’ve seen the worst conditions that we’ve seen in the last three years of conducting these visits.”

Clara Long, a researcher with Human Rights Watch, joined the coalition during their visit to Clint and detailed her experience at the facility for her organization’s site:

While we were denied access to speak with children quarantined in special cells for those with flu at Clint, several infants held in South Texas facilities were admitted recently to a hospital, after the intervention of doctors and lawyers. Children at Clint told us they don’t have regular access to showers or clean clothes, with some saying they hadn’t been allowed to bathe over periods of weeks and don’t have regular access to soap. The U.S. government argued in court on Tuesday that its obligation to provide “safe and sanitary” conditions does not require it to provide kids with hygiene items such as soap or toothbrushes.

The lasting effects of the mental and emotional trauma to the detained children caused by their mistreatment, San Francisco-based child psychoanalyst Gilbert Kliman told AP, could be long-lasting.

Ya think?

Friday Fun Facts …. “✏️The ‘Sprout Pencil’ …. IS a Thing ✏️ …. ‘“!!

~~June 21, 2019~~

THE SPROUT PENCIL

What if instead of throwing your pencil stubs away you could plant them and have them grow into something delicious, beautiful, and fun?  What if pencils could grow?

Sprout is a pencil with a seed inside.  

When it’s too short to use, it can be planted at home, at the office, or in the classroom.  

(If you’re really excited to plant Sprout, you can do so before it’s too short.)  

Sprout is Made in the USA.

”CENTRAL PARK FIVE” = “THE EXONERATED FIVE” 

This is a ‘must watch‘!

The story of stolen innocence, childhood and youth due to an entirely flawed system associated to bias, racism and inequality.

=======================================

🙏🏽 … ‘They’d already spent years of their lives incarcerated for a crime they didn’t commit.

Yuseff Salaam was released in March 1997 after serving seven years and 11 months, Kevin Richardson was released in June 1997 after serving eight years and two months, Antron McCray was released in September 1996 after serving seven years and five months and Raymond Santana was released in December 1995 after serving six years and eight months. By the time Reyes confessed, Korey Wise had spent 13 years and three months behind bars.

It’s now known that the true perpetrator was Matías Reyes, a serial rapist who was in prison when he confessed to the crime in 2002.

As ‘When They See Us‘ masterfully illustrates, the Central Park Five are a tragic example of the flaws in our justice system and the manner in which prosecutors and detectives exploited these flaws and used the city and country’s racial tensions to their advantage.

As a result, five children spent the majority of their teen years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit, and it’s important to remember that they are victims as well.’ … 🙏🏽

~~Published on Apr 19, 2019~~

Based on a true story that gripped the country, When They See Us will chronicle the notorious case of five teenagers of color, labeled the Central Park Five, who were convicted of a rape they did not commit. The four part limited series will focus on the five teenagers from Harlem – Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise.

Beginning in the spring of 1989, when the teenagers were first questioned about the incident, the series will span 25 years, highlighting their exoneration in 2002 and the settlement reached with the city of New York in 2014. When They See Us was created by Ava DuVernay, who also co-wrote and directed the four parts.

Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King from Participant Media, Oprah Winfrey from Harpo Films, and Jane Rosenthal, Berry Welsh and Robert De Niro from Tribeca Productions will executive produce the limited series alongside DuVernay through her banner, Forward Movement. In addition to DuVernay, Attica Locke, Robin Swicord, and Michael Starrburry also serve as writers on the limited series.

Lightly Child, Lightly.

A trio of tulips in an earthenware pot … ‘Ocean Vuong, from his new book titled: “On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous: A Novel” (Penguin Press, June 4, 2019)’

Live & Learn

A trio of tulips in an earthenware pot stopped me in the middle of my mind. I had woken abruptly and, still dazed from sleep, mistook the dawn light hitting the petals for the flowers emitting their own luminescence. I crawled to the glowing cups, thinking I was seeing a miracle, my own burning bush. But when I got closer, my head blocked the rays and the tulips turned off. This also means nothing, I know. But some nothings change everything after them.
