Over 10,000 migrant children, some of them seeking asylum on their own, and others taken from families seeking asylum, are now being held in various places in the U.S. This is an increase in numbers, and they are being held in a variety of places. Some are being held in tents in the desert of Texas, other are being crowded into other shelters which were never designed to hold the amount of people they are now being forced to hold.
Some of these facilities are being paid upwards of $750.00 per day, and someone is making a lot of money from this. Not only that, but the money trail leads directly to the Trump administration, including one company paying half a million dollars toward Trump’s inauguration. Other companies making millions on these practices include Betsy DeVos (Secretary of Education), and Jim Mattis (Secretary of Defense) as part of their investors. Vice President Pence also has ties through his brother to other of these providers.
