Time wandering, I stumbled across the following written document. I present it to you without commentary.

American Shame in Two Thousand Eighteen
In the period known as Trump’s Cruel Debacle number 666 America became an international symbol of intolerance and inhumanity when The United States Department of Justice issued an official release.
Not a law, rather an edict at the behest of disgraced President Donald J. Trump, America’s Attorney General began to inflict cruel and unusual punishment on Central American immigrants seeking asylum from gangs, poverty, rape and other inhumane conditions.
After suffering long and punishing journeys as much as one thousand miles from their homelands to reach legal Southern-American border entry points, thousands of weary immigrants found it either extremely difficult or literally impossible to enter The United States through legal channels.
With no viable recourse available, many of these families that included nursing babies and young children as well as parents, aunts and uncles had no choice but to seek entrance through non-approved border crossings.
The Zero-Tolerance policy mandated that all adults entering at these areas be incarcerated in internment camps. Reminiscent of Nazi Germany concentration camps, children and parents as well as many males and females were separated.
Newspaper and media journalists as they were called at the time were given little or no access to the “camps.” Rumors, later confirmed found that many children were “lost” and never accounted for.
The internment centers that were a combination of old “Big Box” stores without windows and tents
were provided as shelter. Food, clothing and other essentials were allegedly provided, though without means of independent verification no one including the U.S. Senate and Congress could corroborate the quality of services provided.
On June nineteenth, 2018 the U.S. government announced that it was opening ‘Tender Age’ centers. This was a first-time event for the government as it struggled to deal with the surge in infants that had been taken from parents. Many raised questions about infants who would not be receiving the physical contact that is so important at this tender age to use the government’s own verbiage.
These centers as the others were not run by The Department of Homeland Security. It was United States policy to turn children over to The Department of Health and Human Services. They in turn hired private contractors to fulfill the necessary tasks.
However, viewed as the most important and pressing issue was the emotional trauma inflicted on parents and children. So acute was the crises, and its harmful psychological effect on the infants and youngsters the year two thousand twenty two saw the implementation of the Immigration Recovery Social Services and Psychiatric Support Act implemented by the newly elected Democrat Party Administration.
During the big surge that took place in mid-June of two thousand eighteen, many in the nation started to protest. Though politically progressive citizens began the effort, many social conservatives joined in. This marked the first time since President Trump’s election that members of his own party took exception to his autocratic administrative style.
As was common in the first quarter of the twenty-first century a number of Congressional politicians from both parties who were running in the two thousand eighteen mid-term elections did not speak up on the issue. As of the date of this publication this remains a reality of American politics.
Midday on June 20, 2018 President Trump announced he would sign a temporary order halting the separation of children and their families. It was not a solution however, merely a temporary fix. And by that time great damage had been done. The die was cast. And great unrest ensued.
Although many were hard put to understand why the U.S. President implemented a policy that would forever mark him as an insensitive, inhumane and amoral individual there was a general consensus that his actions were politically motivated.
Some believed that he felt an overpowering need to fulfill the promise he made to his political base regarding the handling of illegal immigration. Excesses were viewed by his ardent followers as proof that he was “making America great again.”
There was considerable opinion by moderates and progressives that Mr. Trump was motivated in great part by his desire to halt the changing complexion of the American populace. This was reinforced by the impromptu verse and songs that his followers often chanted.
Eenie Meenie Miney and Moe
All the brown kids they must go
Rip them from their Mother’s arms
The government promises… no harm
There were many theories about the cause and effect of the Zero-Tolerance act. For greater detail about the above summary, you may read the unabridged version of Historical Encyclopedia Americanus which is available on-line, at local libraries and at the remaining twenty-two brick and mortar book stores found in the states of Northern California, New York and Massachusetts.
The Zero-Tolerance act led to the “Great Revolution” of two thousand eighteen details of which can be found in the following chapter.
At his commitment hearing in two thousand twenty-two, in excess of one hundred medical and psychiatric professionals concurred that President Trump had not been responsible for his heinous actions and that after a suitable period of treatment-based incarceration he would be fit to reenter society and resume normal daily activities.
He was released from The Center for Specialized Pathological Degenerate Challenges two years and eighteen days after his incarceration. See chapter nineteen for details of Donald Trump’s life post commitment.
As promised, I have made no commentary on the above excerpt. Historians and citizens alike reached their own conclusions about the President’s actions as well as what preemptive precautions responsible people of good conscience should have taken.
