Martin W.G. King writes of the conditions inside Donald Trump’s concentration camps for immigrants and asylum seekers. Here’s a bit:
Abuse of detainees is so rampant it seems to border on policy. One private migrant detention facility, in Tacoma, Wash., sits in the middle of a toxic, sludge-filled superfund site and has been the subject of a particularly large number of complaints against its staff for physical and sexual assault.
Trump has created a climate that has encouraged the mistreatment of migrants for his own political gain, and he’s done it, mostly, with impunity.
This is institutionalized cruelty.
Words fail me.
