Trump Administration Holding Babies And Toddlers In Multiple ‘Tender Age’ Shelters: AP

CNN reported last week that a mother from Honduras said her breastfeeding baby was taken from her by federal agents while she was awaiting prosecution at an immigrant detention center. Michelle Brane, director of migrant rights at the Women’s Refugee Commission, described seeing “5-year-olds in cages alone with no adult care” and a 4-year-old whose diapers were being changed by other detained children as she visited a facility where migrants were being held.
