I knew this particular shoe dropping would not be long coming.

So do they treat all their inmates this way? The whole place needs to be investigated.

6. Welcome to DU, StTimofEdenRoc.

This is just getting too insane. Sounds like some of our worst fears are being realized.

This is a VERY dark time in our country's history. I hope we can recover from it. Lots of "New-Century Good Germans" out there already.

9. This is not new. Its been going on for years.

 

"The complaint filed by the nonprofit Washington Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs recounts the story of an unnamed 17-year-old Mexican citizen apprehended at the southern border. The teen fled an abusive father and violence fueled by drug cartels to seek asylum in the United States in 2015.

After stops at facilities in Texas and New York, he was transferred to Shenandoah in April 2016 and diagnosed during an initial screening by a psychologist with three mental disorders, including depression. Besides weekly sessions speaking with a counselor, the lawsuit alleges the teen has received no further mental health treatment, such as medications that might help regulate his moods and behavior."
