USA: 'Traumatising' - Protest outside Texan detention centres for minors

United States, Tornillo, Texas
June 24, 2018 at 23:43 GMT +00:00 · Published

Protesters gathered in front of the detention facilities for immigrant minors near the Mexican border in Tornillo, TX on Sunday.

The protest was organised against US President Donald Trump’s migration policies and to demand that separated families are reunited.

I can only imagine being detained in a tent, in the heat, it got to be 110F [43°C] degrees today," said one protester. "I can only imagine how traumatising that will be for the rest of their lives."

Trump's administration has been roundly condemned for its treatment of migrants at the southern border after 2,300 migrant children were separated from their parents between mid-April and May.

Trump announced a reversal of the policy to separate children from their parents after he signed an executive order on Wednesday.

Protesters said that families must be reunited and that there must be a plan to avoid keeping people in jail.
