  • CW: child sexual abuse, institutional abuse, immigrant detention・・・Reposted from @newsanctuarycoalition・・・
Cayuga and Safe Haven for Children in NY are getting sued for child abuse. 
We have tried for a year to get the #SCARAct passed to afford us some transparency from these agencies.
They are getting $1000 a month, per child. “‘A review of 38 legal claims obtained by The Associated Press — some of which have never been made public — shows taxpayers could be on the hook for more than $200 million in damages from parents who said their children were harmed while in government custody.

The father and son are among dozens of families — separated at the border as part of the Trump administration’s zero tolerance policy — who are now preparing to sue the federal government, including several who say their young children were sexually, physically or emotionally abused in federally funded foster care. “How is it possible that my son was suffering these things?” the father said. “My son is little and couldn’t defend himself.” Three of the four incidents involving physical harm outlined in legal filings occurred at Cayuga Centers in New York, the largest foster care placement for migrant children, housing up to 900 babies and children at a time. The kids are supposed to be placed with Spanish-speaking families who are paid $1,000 per month per child.

In one Cayuga home, a foster parent found a little girl being forced to touch another child’s private parts and kiss her on the lips, according to a memo submitted as part of a federal lawsuit related to family separation.

The girl was 3 when immigration officials took her from her father in March, after they’d crossed the border in Texas. As a result of her trauma, the little girl began to regress in foster care, having difficulty eating, drinking and using the toilet, according to her attorney. The girl was sent back to Honduras on Wednesday, a month after her father was deported.”’ https://apnews.com/b44559a135654616aa0e69a3ec7d2339

  • "Terrible things are happening outside. Poor helpless people are being dragged out of their homes. Families are torn apart; men, women and children are separated. Children have come home from school to find their parents have dissapeared." -Anne Frank, January 13th, 1943.
---------------------------------------------
"This is what it sounds like when you take a child's parents away from them. This girl is an American citizen. Her parents have been here for nearly 15 years. They work their asses off in damn chicken factory in the middle of Mississippi. And now this. Just devastating. Dont look away. Don't look away. Don't you fucking dare look away. She is begging for help." -Shaun King

  • 2 of 2.  4. Americans, historically, are a greedy lot who take the best for themselves. Therefore, we should not be surprised by the actions of our national government toward immigrants and natives in the current context. We need to remember our neighbors aren’t just across borders, but across the street, state, and globe and we all want the same things for ourselves and our children - peace, love, and safety.  We need to quit treating the poor of our nation like prisoners of war and instead treat them like our neighbors that they are. (And, we need to honor the treaties with the natives and give back their land... period. Yes, it will be hard, but it’s theirs!  We need to pay reparations to descendants of slaves, too.)
5.  Americans need to get out more. Out of our city, county, state, region, and nation. We need to see our national parks and take advantage of the services we pay for with our taxes. We need to see the flooding and crop losses in Iowa, Mississippi, Missouri, and Nebraska caused by the spring/summer floods first hand. (Roads and power lines are still being repaired. Parts of I-29 are still washed out.

Just my $0.02, and I’m not sure it’s worth that. I’m glad to be home. Running hot water, indoor plumbing with fresh potable water, and a bed off the ground are super nice. I appreciate them more after three weeks in a tent, and I realize that going without them was my choice. 
The real shame is that folks in my own state don’t have access to the same amenities I do.  That as a nation we keep people, our neighbors, in situations most of us wouldn’t choose for ourselves because of their poverty, skin color, language, or religion. 
We live on a beautiful planet. Get out and see it. Visit with your neighbors. Share a cup of coffee with them. Push back against the borders you built for yourself.  Be the change.

"Saturday, August 10 is the eve of Tisha B’Av, the Jewish day of mourning.  We cannot ignore the cries of those whose tragedy is right before us. Modern-day asylum seekers and immigrants deserve to be welcomed with open arms, not packed into detention camps. We will not stand idly by. 
Join Rabbi Greg Wolfe of Congregation Bet Haverim, NCJW Sacramento, and Jewish Action NorCal at the last ICE detention facility in Northern California. We will gather for a vigil led by Rabbi Greg Wolfe, as one of 50 vigils nationwide co-sponsored by T'ruah, Bend the Arc: A Jewish Partnership for Justice, Torah Trumps Hate, J Street, HIAS, National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism. 
Everyone, Jewish or not, is welcome. 
We will commemorate Tisha B'Av by reading Megillat Eikhah, the Scroll of Lamentations, and hearing talks by clergy, activists, and scholars about lament, suffering, and justice in the Jewish tradition, and what it all means today."
