What Are They Hiding At The Migration Centers?

What is being hidden from us at the migrant centers?

"If there is nothing to hide, why aren't the doors being opened?"


Following Adolf Hitler's rise to power in 1933, Jews started to be excluded from all portions of civil society. Called the Nuremberg laws, this exclusion of Jewish people from having any relationships with people of German blood or descent, this was just the tip of the iceberg as far as establishing the pure Aryan race.

We began to see some semblance of these laws being passed early in the Trump administration (within the first few weeks) as far as the banning of Muslim-born immigrants from seven countries. This was met with several rounds of hand-wringing regarding the legality of this law, and was blocked by several district and circuit courts. Eventually, the decision was reached by the Supreme Court in June 2017 to enforce key portions of the Muslim Ban. One of those was those that do not have any bonafide relationship with the United States would be on the ban list.

Starting to see some relationship brewing here?

After Kristallnacht in 1938, the Third Reich began rounding up large numbers of Jews and sending them to concentration camps. These camps were not necessarily designed to be "death camps" despite the high death rates in said camps.

The "rounding up" of large numbers of a particular ethnicity or religion is being used today. Housing centers, established by the Trump Administration,are for children being separated from their parents. The parents, desiring a better home for their children, are fleeing Mexico and Central American countries looking for better homes away from the oppressive governments their host countries have. An infamous housing center for these separated children is an old Walmart store in Brownsville, Texas converted into a migrant shelter called "Southwest Key Programs: Casa Padre."

Several issues exist with the converted Walmart store, especially with workers. Workers at the shelter are forbidden from providing care or comfort to shaken children not knowing if/when they will see their parents. Fellow children are even instructed on how to change diapers of children staying in shelters with them.

There may be more that Senator Jeff Merkley would want to expose to this administration that we may not know about. But, he was unfortunately (perhaps suspiciously) denied access to the former Walmart that is housing migrant children.

It raises one question: why is access denied to an elected Senator who wants to see how these children are being treated being told to leave? If they have nothing to hide, why are we being denied knowledge of how these shelters are run? Let this be seen by the public as is required by the 1st amendment (freedom of the press and of assembly)?

And make them show it in real time, not some glowing summer camp:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
