Trump administration still separating families at border, advocates say

Trump administration still separating familiesThe Trump administration is still tearing young children away from their parents when they cross the US-Mexico border unlawfully, despite formally ending the policy of family separations last summer, according to immigration advocates in Texas.

In El Paso on Monday, on the day Donald Trump held a rally in the border city, a mother sobbed as she told how she arrived in the US from Honduras last October and had her two daughters, aged five and three, taken away from her without explanation.

It was a month before she was allowed to speak to her girls, by phone, and then see them for one hour a week. They were reunited after four months and are now staying in El Paso, in western Texas, while authorities process the asylum application of their mother, Yeimi, who asked to withhold her last name out of security concerns.

Detainee on Hunger Strike Details Force-Feeding

Detainee details force feeding by ICE

Nine men — up from six earlier this week — are being force-fed under court order in a detention center in El Paso, Texas, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said.

One of the hunger strikers, a 22-year-old man from Indian who called The Associated Press on Friday, described how he is dragged from his cell three times a day and strapped down on a bed. He said a group of people force-feed him by pouring liquid into tubes pushed through his nose.

The man, who AP is identifying only by his last name Singh out of family concerns for his safety, stopped eating more than a month ago. In mid-January, ICE obtained court orders to begin non-consensual hydration and feeding, and so for weeks they've had nasal tubes inserted in their noses and IVs in their arms.

Trump Admin Says It’s Too Hard To Reunite Thousands Of Separated Families: Court Filing

Trumpfiling: Too hard to reunite separated families

On Friday, officials from the Trump administration said it would require too much effort to reunite the thousands of families it separated before implementing its “zero-tolerance” policy in April, according to a declaration filed as part of an ongoing lawsuit between the American Civil Liberties Union and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Last month, the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services released a report stating that “thousands” more immigrant families had been separated than the government had previously disclosed. In the declaration submitted Friday, HHS officials said they don’t know the exact number of children who were taken from their parents before “zero tolerance” and that finding them would be too much of a “burden” since there was no formal tracking system in place.

Google Celebrates First Day Of Black History Month With Sojourner Truth Doodle

Sojourner Truth Doodly used by Google for Black History MonthGoogle kicked off Black History Month by honoring abolitionist Sojourner Truth in a Google Doodle illustration published Friday.

“Here’s to Sojourner Truth, who devoted her life to the cause of speaking truth to power,” Google said in a statement.

Truth, born Isabella Baumfree, was born into slavery around 1797 on the New York state estate of Johannes Hardenbergh. She was sold for the first time in 1805 at the age of 9 to John Neely, and two years later to her final slave owner John Dumont. After enduring years of physical and sexual abuse, Truth gained her freedom in 1826 and traveled around the country as a preacher, author, speaker and suffragist.

Holocaust Remembrance Day marked amid renewed hate-fueled violence

Holocaust Remebrance Day marred with violenceThe world marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Sunday amid a revival of hate-inspired violence and signs that younger generations know less and less about the genocide of Jews, Roma and others during World War II.

In Poland, which was under Nazi German occupation during the war, a far-right activist who has been imprisoned for burning the effigy of a Jew gathered with other nationalists Sunday outside the former death camp of Auschwitz ahead of official ceremonies remembering the 1.1 million people murdered there.

Since last year’s observances, an 85-year-old French Holocaust survivor, Mireille Knoll, was fatally stabbed in Paris and 11 Jews were gunned down in a Pittsburgh synagogue during Shabbat services, the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history.

TVNL Comment: The plea to the world was 'Never Again.' Look around, it's happening again and again and again.
