Detention of undocumented migrant children

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

whatever is the agenda of MSN media I won't be hoping on the bandwagon, that's for sure.  

Where is the human face of the starving Yemenis?  Where is the human face of the open prisoners of Gazans?

MSN media will not choose for me who I should sympathize with or not.  

From the link brother @hasanhh provided on CBS News

 

"They're using it to symbolize a policy and that was not the case in this picture," Ruiz said. "It took less than two minutes. As soon as the search was finished, she immediately picked the girl up, and the girl immediately stopped crying."  

Moore says Ruiz and other agents acted professionally that night. But he is happy with the cover and the response to the image.

"Oftentimes, immigration is talked about in terms of statistics, and when you put a human face and humanize an issue, you make people feel. And when you make people feel, they have compassion. And if I've done just a little bit of that, then that's OK," Moore said.

l was listening today to that on-the-radio-'nut' Sean Hannity -- alternating with whiney NPR .

He used a phrase l never heard before: "l will not be guilted into anything."  Meaning someone trying to cast a sense of guilt into you so you change or act.

"Guilted" is an anthimeria, here verbing a noun.

He was arguing against "liberal tactics".

"Fake News"

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/border-patrol-agent-involved-dramatic-photo-girl-crying-at-border-speaks-out/ 

The little girl has -and is- housed with her mother.

When a story is in the news, especially one that mentions how children are harmed psychologically by separating them from family, that photo was a two year old girl crying. It was better than a stock photo of a crying child. More real, not fake. I'm glad that she was not separated from her mother after Mum was patted down by a Border Patrol Agent, but thousands of children have been separated by BPA but we don't have photos of them crying.

Look at the ICE raids in Ohio this week. Those employers face real legal problems and expensive fines. How is that "good" for the economy?

They face legal action because of government, which republicans claim to hate now all of a sudden they want more government when it comes to deportations and detentions of "illegal" migrants. Isn't it the case that migrants will likely work harder and they don't have social safety net programs that citizens will rely on, they will not demand as much in terms of working conditions either and they would likely be more productive, since they want to stay in the US at all costs and not move back to where they are fleeing from, so they'll do everything to keep their job. This is a classical Milton Friedman argument.

John Moore, Getty lmages photo of crying girl.

One voice on the radio mis-spoke and said this picture was "6 years old". Not possible. The mother was previously deported in 2013.

So, return the little girl to her father in Honduras and lock up the repeat-offending mother.

Folks wont be guilted into diverging from basic tenets of humanity today for they are too drunk with their civil war, just like the Nazis were not guilted into things when they did similar things, but once this intoxication wears off there will be nothing but shame & guilt for acting like the Hitler Youth.

Like I said, to a clear view, these baby jails are INDEFENSIBLE.

Those that justify such horror on the illegal nature of the asylum process, should also create cages for American politicians and businessmen who also illegally bring down entire states and govts prompting these poor individuals to leave their entire lives and come seek mercy from the likes of Trump.

Open Borders is the root of this 'crisis' and the basis of this discussion. So it is not "off-topic".  BTW: which illegal entries are being subjected to "mistreatment" ? Besides, the article you condemn is about how the American people are being to 'wise-up' about being manipulated by the media. Something l have writ similarly above.

... has come to remind me of the 1997(?) motion picture, Wag the Dog.  lf you didn't see the film, a crisis is manufactured to protect the President from scandal. His movie moghul friends provide a staged, emotion-oriented film stripe. Stock footage of a war with shelling in the back drop. On stage is a young actress stumbling away from the alleged fighting. When the moghuls are reviewing the film before release to the news media, they see a need to add something. So special effects is called-in to add a puppy into the actress' arms.

With that in mind, l can say, l see the anti-Trump media "Wagging the Dog" down on 0ur Border.

Probably everyone here has been around small children. They cry --or laugh. They cannot do much else. They will even throw tantrums. Ever not see a toddler lie on a floor kicking and screaming? ln a restaurant or store? Or temper-tantrums when putting them in their own, familiar car seat?

l'II close with two propositions:

Empathy is not a basis for policy.

Repeal the Asylum law (and replace it with asylum grant by Congressional Resolution after recommendation by the Department of State or the departments and agencies of defense and so related for collaboration activities and signature of either the President or Vice-President).

Salam Uhty,

When re-reading this l was reminded by the "lost children" who were found years and even decades later. These "lost" had as a rule no memory of their parents, or other parent. So l think this psychological harm theme is far from accurate.

So fixation with media is still at top (as if hatred or disgust is tangibly different) followed by yourself.

You merged yourself with the children and poor people categories, hence they ceased to become independent categories. So you simplified it down to just the media and yourself. 

The equation is clear.

Are these two posts some  kind of psychological quiz?

And how does a media fixation come into this?  Media mis-representations is a theme of this thread.

Psychology is easy to unravel.

The original post doesn’t mention anything about the media. That was dragged in later, by those fixated about it.

I'm ok with having "too much" empathy. I've had too little in the distant past and it was depressing, made life not worth living. We are all in this world together so that we can make things better for each other. I'd rather err on the side of too much compassion than too little. 

I never said the parents who bring their children across the border illegally are not guilty. I just think the punishment should fit the crime.

Salam. What a tragedy that ^ those children could not remember their parent(s) but even more so, that they grew up without their care and love.

According to the International Detention Coalition, an organization that helps refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants affected by immigration detention, in their 2012 report CAPTURED CHILDHOOD (updated in 2016), there is trauma to children who are detained. See an excerpt of the report below, especially the sentence that I put in bold font:

Quote

A variety of factors contributes to or exacerbates the psychosocial and developmental problems experienced by children in immigration detention. These factors include previous trauma experienced in their home country or during migration, the length of time detained, disruption of the family unit and parental roles, poor and unsafe conditions of detention and a lack of basic needs including food. 

Particularly vulnerable are young people with extended experiences of trauma, unaccompanied minors or those separated from their families, and those who are asylum seekers. For some children, detention maintains or aggravates existing trauma and other psychological conditions. For others, the detention experience is the worst thing that has happened to them. 94 For the majority of children the detention experience includes a loss of control, enforced separation from the outside world, detachment from community, culture, religion, and the inability to experience life as predictable, meaningful and safe. The experience of detention may mimic the experience of human rights abuses, persecution and terror. Detention is highly traumatising for children who are less able to understand explanations as to the reason they have been detained. 

There is a clear link between the length of time that children are detained and the psychosocial and developmental issues they confront. The longer children are detained, the more likely they are to be exposed to traumatic events. Further, children and young people who are detained for extended periods of time are more likely than others to experience feelings of isolation, detachment and loss of confidence.

See Chapter 5 (pages 48-57): IMPACTS OF DETENTION ON CHILDREN (PDF only)

As I understand it, Mrs. Trump arrived in the United States on a visitor visa whole seeking modeling work. She later was granted residency and the right to work because of her "extreme talent in her field of work". 

I don't know his ex-wife's immigration history. 

He said all people attempting to enter the US should be turned away. He didn't say all border jumpers should be caught and sent home. There's a huge difference. In fact, most of the "illegal immigrants" are only caught when they seek asylum, which is legal. Border jumping is a misdemeanor. It's comparable to running a stop sign or stealing a grape at the produce market.

These little low class KKK nutcases could have their field day chanting 'Blood & Soil' in Charlottesville or snatch babies from parents at the border, but the Jewish organizations will, slowly but surely, make David Dukes out of them all in no time....Thank God for the American Jews, otherwise God knows what these uneducated impotent lot would do on their stupid way of 'making America great again'.

The mass always criticizes those that are in power and the Jews hold the power n today's world....instead the mass should also learn to look at the alternative...so that we wont get KKK in US or ISIS in ME.
