1949 Geneva Convention requires even prisoners of war to be furnished with soap

Prisoner of War Geneva Convention of 1949:

"Prisoners of war shall have for their use…conveniences which conform to the rules of hygiene…Apart from the baths and showers with which the camps shall be furnished prisoners of war shall be provided with sufficient water and soap."






Children, including infants, are being held in a filthy border station. Their clothes are soiled with mucus, feces and breast milk. No soap. No toothbrushes. Not enough food. Even the guards are wearing masks.

2. Trump has likened the border situation to an invasion.

If it is an invasion, the children are captured POWs entitled to humane treatment as defined by the Geneva Convention.

5. The Geneva Convention never imagined prisoners of Trump

Prisoners of war have a chance at better treatment, especially when neither Cheney nor ISIS is the captor.
