Shocking photo of drowned father and daughter highlights migrants' border peril

Shocking photo of drowned migrant father and daughter

The grim reality of the migration crisis unfolding on America’s southern border has been captured in a series of images showing the lifeless bodies of a Salvadoran father and his daughter who drowned as they attempted to cross the Rio Grande into Texas.

The photographs, taken on Monday, show Óscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez, 26, and his daughter Valeria, lying face down in shallow water. The 23-month-old toddler’s arm is draped around her father’s neck, suggesting that she was clinging to him in her final moments.

Mexican newspapers compared the photograph to the 2015 image of the 3 year old Syrian boy Alan Kurdi who drowned off the Greek island of Kos – although it remains to be seen if it will have the same impact on America’s fierce immigration debate.

People want to donate diapers and toys to children at Border Patrol facilities in Texas. They’re being turned away.

Border Patrol turning down offers for detained children

On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.

About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.

But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.

There’s No Excuse for Mistreating Children at the Border. Here’s What To Do About It.

 There's no excuse for mistreating chindren at the border

From his promise of a “beautiful wall” to his false alarms about caravans of alien marauders at the gate, President Trump has exploited immigration as his marquee issue. He is right, there is a crisis: Not of undocumented immigrants or thousands seeking refuge, as the president would have it, but a crisis of American values, a crisis of America’s premier tradition as a welcoming and humane haven. A crisis Mr. Trump has created, even as Congress has fueled it.

That is not to deny that comprehensive immigration reform is urgently needed, as is funding for the overstretched facilities where undocumented immigrants, and most horribly the children of undocumented immigrants, are held.

Trump delays ICE deportation raids hours after defending them

Trump delays ICE deportation

President Donald Trump on Saturday delayed for two weeks the administration's plans to begin deporting thousands of undocumented families — reversing himself just hours after defending the controversial proposal.

"At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border. If not, Deportations start!" Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon.

The confusion surrounding the proposed raids, which were due to begin Sunday in more than a dozen cities, was the latest episode in which Trump threatened tough action, only to pull back. Last week, he said he had authorized limited strikes against Iran before canceling them shortly before they were due to launch.

Trump administration to house migrant children at Fort Sill, which once served as a Japanese internment camp

Fort Sill Internment CenterThe Trump administration plans to house up to 1,400 unaccompanied migrant children in an Oklahoma military base that once served as a Japanese internment camp during World War II.

The base, Fort Sill, held 350 Japanese Americans following the 1941 attacks on Pearl Harbor. Over 120,000 American citizens of Japanese descent were sent to internment camps during WWII over perceived security concerns.

The move, which was first reported by the Associated Press, was confirmed to USA TODAY by Evelyn Stauffer, spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families (ACF).
