*Over 200 children separated at border brought to facility in East Harlem**

Eyewitness News

HARLEM, Manhattan (WABC) -- Hundreds of children who have been separated from their parents at the border are spending their days in a facility in East Harlem.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio visited the facility Wednesday and said the youngest of those children was just nine months old.

The mayor said 239 children are there. He said he was shocked to see the images playing out at the southern border and even more shocked that children by the hundreds had been coming to the city.

He spent nearly an hour at Cayuga Centers, a social service provider that has a contract with the federal government.

He met with administrators who told him at least 350 children have come through the facility since the federal government's zero tolerance policy went into effect.

He spoke at length about one 9-year-old boy Eddie, who came with his mother seeking asylum from Honduras. She is being held in Texas.

Eddie was put on a bus and transported 2,000 miles to Manhattan and he is far from alone.

De Blasio said he had no idea about the hundreds of children who had been taken there.

"Our message to the federal government is simple, stop this right now," said the mayor. "Stop this broken inhuman policy right now and come clean with the truth: who are these children, how many are they, where are they, what is happening here, how is it possible that none of us knew there were 239 kids right here in our own city."

The mayor will head to the border town of Tornillo, Texas, where he and mayors from across the country will attempt to gain access to the detention facility at the Marcelino Serna entry point Thursday morning.

The children in East Harlem are being placed in foster homes and come to the facility during the day where they work with social service providers.

Also, not all 239 kids are there inside the facility at one time.

Inside the Cayuga facility, the Mayor observed about 40 kids and 3 teachers in a classroom. He said that most kids were from Guatemala and that it "looked like kids were being treated well".

De Blasio said children have come with lice, bed bugs and chicken pox and contagious diseases.

The mayor said that people have made threats against the workers at Cayuga and that their anger is "misguided".

He instead said people should be upset with the Trump Administration. He said the NYPD will provide protection to this facility, and said he plans to be in touch with and visit other facilities around New York City.

I found a way to make homemade soda


Canned fruit ( you can eat the fruit later or whatever), drain the syrup from it in a glass, add seltzer water and ice, and a tad bit of sugar for your taste. it is delicious

So all of those damn lies about the Dems need to change this..

Now he says he will sign an EXECUTIVE order? Why couldn't you do that in the first place? Cause you were using those children as a ransom to get your wall.

The Trump Administration Is leaving the United Nations Human Rights Council


WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is set to announce Tuesday its departure from the United Nations’ main human rights body in its latest withdrawal from an international institution.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley will deliver the verdict on the U.N. Human Rights Council in a joint appearance at the State Department, according to four officials familiar with the matter.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly preview the decision, the specifics of which are to be laid out by Haley.

Haley threatened the pull-out last year, citing longstanding U.S. complaints that the 47-member council is biased against Israel. But the announcement will also come just a day after the U.N. human rights chief denounced the Trump administration for separating migrant children from their parents.


He called the migrants 'infestations'

plural noun: infestations
the presence of an unusually large number of insects or animals in a place, typically so as to cause damage or disease.
"infestation with head lice is widespread"
