Apparently, Donald Trump and the Republican Party will stop at nothing to make minorities suffer, even when it goes against their own agenda and beliefs.
The inhumane treatment of migrant families at the southern border has been horrifying. Thousands of children have been separated from their parents, and these people are being held in detention centers that are just like prisons. Any Republican who dares to claim that they value human life can never make that claim again — especially after what MSNBC has just reported.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) visited a detention facility in Southern California and blew the lid off of the white-washed version the Trump administration has been giving America. In an interview with MSNBC’s Kassie Hunt, Harris exposed several lies that the Department of Homeland Security and POTUS have been telling Americans to keep the peace. Harris stated that children were not able to call their parents as easily as First Lady Melania Trump suggested when she visited McAllen, Texas last week. Melania had stated that children were allowed to call family members twice per week. However, that’s only if that relative was a guardian with documentation. Children are also being charged 85¢ per minute to make phone calls, exposing the lies that calls are free.
Harris also stated that the Trump administration is changing the policy that protects women and allows them to seek asylum in cases of domestic violence and gang violence. Even worse, women are having miscarriages due to the conditions in the detention centers — and no one cares. Harris said:
They have rolled back the protections that existed for pregnant women and there are pregnant women in that prison right now. And there are pregnant women that have had miscarriages since they’ve been here, not to mention what they did in terms of rescinding DACA. There’s a systematic and clear constellation in policy perspective from this administration as it relates to women and children and families.”
You would think that the GOP and pro-life groups would be up in arms about preventing the deaths of these babies, but apparently it really only matters to them if the fetuses are white. Trump himself spoke at March for Life earlier this year and said:
The March for Life is a movement born out of love. You love your families, you love your neighbors, you love our nation and you love every child — born and unborn — because you believe every life is sacred, that every child is a precious gift from God.”
While the number of miscarriages that have occurred is unknown, there have not been any attempts to prevent them from happening. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s been reported that at least one emergency room doctor volunteered their services — and they were turned away for being “too qualified.”
