Camp Internment

During a contentious Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, an ICE official looked to ease concerns about the residential centers where families are being held, describing them as being more like a summer camp. I hated summer camp. My counselors took away the care package my sister sent. There was a weird old guy who made us drop our towels so he could “check for ticks” after we showered. And I wet my sleeping bag for week a straight. But still, these families in the reunification process sure as hell don’t look like they’re at summer camp to me.

+ I also don’t remember this directive coming up during my summer camp. Trump administration must stop giving psychotropic drugs to migrant children without consent.
