Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Pediatrics released these pictures today drawings made by ten and eleven year old children in macallan recently released from customs and border protection custody depicting themselves behind bars and in cages we have almost no video oh what if like in these detention camps except for this which were shocked by texas democratic congressman joaquin castro who smuggled some sort of recording vice into a facility bility on monday as part of congressional delegation even though border patrol confiscated members phones schmidt castro joins me now why did you think it was important to defy their worst confiscate your phones to get a footage from inside because the country has to see what's being done in their name and also because i don't believe that the executive branch has authority to tell the legislative branch with oversight power over these federal federal agencies that we can't document what's going on inside side and we asked the border patrol chief and as an attorney that was their very specifically the site the law they were relying on to keep us from documenting what what's going on and they couldn't find a single law so at that point chris consider their request a courtesy and there's too much at stake for me to abide by courtesy at this point the funny show their shows women who have appear you know they're not they're obviously not young young children and their their their adult women 'em on the floor there in that sell it looks like a jail cell what's striking to me is what you guys saw they knew you were coming this is not a spot visit is that correct that's right but they didn't think we would get into that sell the reason that we got ended outsell is because alexandro cossio cortez insisted that she be able to talk to those women and basically you know you know push away in there and so when we got in there the women started telling us their stories some of them fifty days there in detention some separated from their kids some said they've not been given their medications the sink was not working there is no running water so when these women use the restroom there is no way for them to wash their hands so what we saw in that cell it's consistent with what the pediatricians have said about other facilities i also want next door and visited people at another facility there is a woman who is in the early stages of pregnancy an in that facility there is a sink was working there were paper cubs were being reused by the people in that sell a so these conditions are deplorable a human rights are being neglected and the president had this to say if illegal immigrants are unhappy with the conditions in the quickly built around fitted detention centers just tell them not to come all problem solve what do you think of that well a first these are mostly asylumseekers they have the legal right to petition for asylum in the united states just as anybody across the world has the right to do that in any nation and also it shows you that what we already know that the presidency's migrants as subhuman he dehumanizes them for political purposes and politically gain and there is reporting other supporting republican recover earlier in the week about a a facebook group with thousands of members in cbp that posted offensive racist sexist derogatory means i'm really some disturbing stuff on were reporting tonight from politico that actually dhs officials were alerted to this some admitted apparently anonymously the they had been monitoring it per quote intelligence and that this would do it was notified to see bp as far back as twenty sixteen which is under the obama administration administration what does that say to you about the culture of cb p c b p is broken and they have it culture problem at this point the bad has overtaken the good and there are good agents who were trying to do their best to take care of the people in their custody but they're overwhelmed by the system and they're also under cut by the kinds of agents who were making those violent vulgar comments and right now there is no system in place within cbp that can really hold agents accountable when they do wrong and that's what we're seeing is it these people continue
