Will you all get off keeping children in cages at the border? Those cages you keep harping on were built by and used by OBAMA. That picture they show on TV was taken when, wait for it! Yes OBAMA was the President.
The cages were needed to protect the kids in them. On their entire trip men and older boys raped young girls and boy were also raped and made to commit crimes for the coyotes leading them to the border. Also these were nothing more than chain link fences with gates to separate them into a safe location. When you have thousands of people coming across the border each day you have to house them in a safe matter.
Now as far as children in emergencies such as natural disasters, all of us are Traumatized. That is grown ups and children. As a person that has lived through 6 hurricanes in my life, the last two being hurricanes Rita and Ike, may I say hurricane Rita hit us with 100mph winds with gust up to 120mph. Our city was without electricity for 6 days and the police station and EOC was without electricity for 3 days.
It was the help of FEMA and church group’s that brought food, water and shelter in the local churches that made it bearable.
Under most circumstances the family survives and it it the responsibility of the parents to watch and care for your own children. Groups of parents that want to share toys with children and even play little games. Teachers get together and have learning sessions that children can attend since the school might not have electricity or might have been destroyed.
Food and water and some medicine and medical attention is given to children and adults alike. But again if you have children it is your responsibility to watch your own children. If you need help you can ask.
