Rep. Rashida Tlaib promised Saturday at & # 39; the M-fer & # 39; to accuse the White House and warned of lifelong trauma for migrant children in border facilities

Tlaib says it's a & # 39; very, very dark time & # 39; is because of Trump's border policies and warns of a & # 39; entire generation of children who will never forget what our nation has done to them & # 39;

Rep. Rashida Tlaib promised Saturday at & # 39; the M-fer & # 39; to accuse the White House and warned of lifelong trauma to migrant children in border facilities.

Tlaib spoke about a panel at the Netroots Nation organizing conference in Philadelphia with fellow Democratic representatives Ilhan Omar, Debra Haaland and Ayanna Pressley about the conditions in the camps.

& # 39; As a nation, we must realize, we will look back at this time as a very dark time. We are. "Not just because of who's in the White House, but more importantly because of the policy, and we'll look back and say, what have we done as a nation to counter this," she said.

& # 39; This is a whole generation of children who will never forget what our nation has done to them. They will never forget the trauma. & # 39;

Tlaib has the statement of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confirms that the detention centers function as & # 39; concentration camps & # 39; and said on Saturday that the nation cannot look away from the border crisis.

& # 39; The fact that, you know, we held them and injected them with medication so that they could stop crying. The fact that we separate them from their parents and tell them that their father and mother no longer want them. That kind of trauma is something we all need, such as not looking away, and being able to fight it in a very aggressive way, & she said.

Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib and Pressley visited a series of migrant detention centers in Texas last week as part of a delegation of democratic legislators, days before a report from the Inspector General raised the alarm about facility conditions.

The report warned of & # 39; dangerous overcrowding and prolonged detention of children and adults & # 39; at the facilities.

Tlaib has invoked the deposition of Trump and has made her notorious commitment to expel him at the start of her term in subsequent comments on the panel.

& # 39; We're going to blame the M-fer, don't worry. We're going to blame him, & she urged her to applaud.

She said: & # 39; I will not fall back on deposing this lawless president. & # 39;
