Shocking Photos Of Humanitarian Crisis On U.S. Border Emerge

An Article from Huffington Post – Posted: Updated: 

Disturbing images of children warehoused along the border by the federal government emerged on Friday, posted by Breitbart Texas reporter Brandon Darby.
The haunting pictures show a system overwhelmed by children and families detained by Customs and Border Protection, reflecting a growing humanitarian crisis. A spokesperson for CBP did not dispute the authenticity of the photos. “CBP has not officially released any photos at this time in order to protect the rights and privacy of unaccompanied minors in our care,” a statement from CBP read. The president acknowledged earlier this week that the situation had reached crisis levels on the border, as children from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador flee deepening poverty and violence. Nearly 50,000 children have been caught crossing the border without parents since Oct. 1, The New York Times reported Monday. “The influx of unaccompanied children across the southwest border has resulted in an urgent humanitarian situation,” a Department of Homeland Security official emailed on background. “The President has directed Secretary Johnson to establish an interagency Unified Coordination Group to ensure unity of effort across the Administration in responding effectively to this humanitarian situation. This effort, lead and coordinated by FEMA, is quickly marshalling resources across the government to provide humanitarian relief to affected children. Addressing the rising flow of unaccompanied children crossing our southwest border is an important priority of this Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.”
