UN rights chief 'appalled' by conditions in US for migrants


JAMEY KEATEN, Associated PressoJuly 9, 2019

GENEVA (AP) — The United Nations' human rights chief said Monday she was "appalled" by the conditions migrants and refugees face in U.S. detention facilities, intensifying a challenge to the Trump administration's immigration policies.


United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet said children stopped by border agents should never be held in immigration detention facilities or separated from their families, and detention should not be the norm for adults, either.


President Donald Trump said Sunday that migrants were coming from "unbelievable poverty" and "those are people that are very happy with what's going on because, relatively speaking, they're in much better shape right now" in U.S. custody.


He went on to praise the work of the Border Patrol and other law enforcement officers on the U.S.-Mexico border, saying, "it's incredible what they're doing. They've had to become nurses. They've had to become janitors."


The Homeland Security report was the second by the inspector general's office to blast conditions at temporary detention centers in Texas where migrants are held.


The first, based on visits to Border Patrol facilities in western Texas in May, showed dozens of migrants packed into spaces so tight that some had to stand on toilets. It detailed how 900 migrants were in a 125-person facility at one point, with many held for weeks in violation of the government's policy.


Bachelet acknowledged the "sovereign prerogative" of countries to set the conditions under which foreigners are permitted to enter and stay but also highlighted their human rights obligations. Her office said she recognized the "complexity" of challenges faced by migrants' countries of origin, the ones they travel through and destinations like the U.S.

Again, with sudden surge in "caravan" migration to our border: Our border facilities were/are overwhelmed. Why is it our fault this has happened? It is going to happen when 5 or 6 times the number ( or more than that)of people those facilities are built to handle come knocking at the door. If the UN is upset about it, they can fund additional facilities to take care of the excess in Mexico. I do truly understand that these people are fleeing terrible conditions but unless we remain masters of our borders, those conditions will transport themselves here.
We do need to revise our laws that are out dated and no longer applical to the current situation. But instead of doing so, it has been turned into a political football, with niether party putting forth anything remotely like policies that are in the best interest of our nation, not, for those who wish to come here. Not sure how you stop the throwing of red meat to the bases, but neither extreme is feasible.



Send them back home to their country where they are citizens there. They will not have to endure this situation they have right now. In their country, they can live freely and move about freely. Please remember, US citizens taxpayers should only go to helping our American homeless families, youths, veterans. It is not our job to give free meals, free shelter, free medical treatment to migrants. Have you seen your local area?... yiur homeless people sleeping on the grounds, no food, no medical treatment. Compassion and empathy should start within our own backyard.


Yeah? When is the U.N. taking in some these central and South America migrants?


Darrell Hahn
He's more then welcome to take them home with him


He should talk to Ms. Pelosi about getting to work and fixing the legal loopholes in our immigration laws.
