The truth is these kids are well fed, well cared for, and have no business in a jail cell with their parents. Many of the kids some say there are 30,000 have no parents with them in the first place, being brought across the border illegally by child traffickers or sent on their way from foreign countries to travel on their own. Now, They have nice rooms, nice beds, warm showers, toiletries, and many have learned to use a flush toilet for the first time in their young lives.
I have a picture of a teddy bear on one of the beds. Many of these kids had never owned a toothbrush before Social Services taught them about dental hygiene. They have TVs and video games, pool and foosball tables, lounging areas, dining areas, and secure sleeping areas. Many of these kids have never had it so good; (and this is a big improvement over the Obama Administration era where a much larger number of similarly detained children were placed in crude cages and slept on mats on concrete floors).
