Whistleblower Says Fort Bliss Migrant Facility Felt Like A “Prison” For Kids

 

NBC’s Julia Ainsley joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss two whistleblowers saying they were told to downplay a Covid outbreak among migrant kids at Fort Bliss HHS shelter in Texas. Julia says that one of the whistleblowers, Arthur Pearlstein, told her in an exclusive interview that “the mental health problems were also rampant,” citing cases of depression and anxiety in the children at the shelter, who talked “more about how much they disliked the facility than the journeys they took as migrants to come to the United States.”

    1. @Zaynab bint Al-Harith “You built them so it’s your fault I used them as much as possible.” Yep, sounds like Donnie DARVO alright.

    2. @Insignificant360
      Is Trump president? No.

      Biden refuses to close the cages BUT yii don’t care now

    3. @Zaynab bint Al-Harith They were apparently built under Obama but Trump didn’t shut them down, instead using them extensively. Way to excuse your Messiah.

    4. @Insignificant360
      Biden built them.
      Biden accused Trump of using them.
      Trump isn’t President.
      Biden uses the cages NOW.

    1. @Mark Evans apologies for the marxist maniacs and their sick comments You are right ,of course .

    2. @psycobleach46 tullis yes Joke Obiden did open the borders. From day one! Are you kidding me. *It is the Federal Government’s job to keep our borders safe and secure.* Now the States have to step up! Sad. Plus Joey stopped construction on the border. Do a real good search and you will see.

    3. Then stop voting democrat! Or else have a coke and a smile and hush up! Obama started the cages! That is when the picture of AOC were taken. When she was crying. Don’t see that evil women crying now and neither should you. That’s all

    4. @Colorado IsME if it is the federal governments job to keep the border safe why is it that under trump the contractors approved to build the wall were caught hiring illegals to construct and were being armed to provide security on the us side for these company construction yards? I bet they were even letting them in during the day considering all the media showed groups of 20 or 30 people crossing together…funny before Trump boarder patrol would be busy at night a group of 3 to 5…u der Trump 20 to 30in the day?

    5. @Nic Moreno you answered you own question fool. The contractors approved to build the wall were caught hiring illegals. It is the contractors who did that. Not Trump or our Government. Guess they need to hire better contractors huh? So, when women get violated in our military must be the military’s fault and the POTUS fault? Get out of here kid! Funny NO MEDIA allowed now huh. … .. but keep talking rookie! That’s all.

    1. @Adam Taylor: “America doesn’t have a far left”
      Thanks for showing all of us how ignorant you are.

    2. @Reason I’m pretty sure that’s why we progressives keep getting attacked. And I think of myself as less so.

  1. All the devastation of these facilities is a direct result of Trump. In his four short years he systematically dismantled these facilities to the point they are all staffed by his worshipers. People who worship Trump should NOT be in the federal employment of any kind.

    1. Actually Gary, he secured the border which discouraged illegal immigration . The Biden/ Harris disaster broke the border and is releasing known diseased individuals and violent criminals into the country. I hope none of your or my loved ones fall victim to the insanity of this administration.

    2. @Todd Anonymous actually he didn’t there is whistle blower reports that the contractors where hiring illegals to construct and were being armed to provide security on the us side at their construction yards…so when construction stopped there was large groups like 20 to 30 walking up to cross during the day this was even seen by several media outlets …how is it that before Trump border patrol would find 3 to 5 in a group at night but u der Trump news out lets during the day catch 20 to 30 doing this during the day?? All on video… was this like people Trump was paying $50 bucks to show up at his 2016 rallys?

  2. The only surprise here is that MSNBC actually reported on this story. Where is AOC crying about kids in cages.

    1. @LGilbert She was crying about the zero tolerance family separation policy.. And the children trump killed.

    2. @Bart Järgengärblbärgeler Awful, yes. BUT your concern trolling is unconvincing. There was a rush of UNACCOMPANIED kids, NOT kids stolen from parents with little to no effort made to keep track. They were intended to be extremely temporary- couple days, max. The Trump Admin literally said they intended to have kids in them INDEFINITELY, if they deemed it necessary. Apples & oranges comparison.

  3. *Whistleblower Jailed For Exposed War Crimes*

    DANIEL HALE: I am here because i stole something that was never mine to
    take – precious human life.
    For that , i was compensated with a medal.ICouldn’t keep living in a world
    in which people pretended that things weren’t happening that were.

    Your honor , forgive me for taking papres instead of human lives.

  4. John 8:44
    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    Isaiah 5:20
    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

  5. The implication is that this only started this year? How convenient when hiding the atrocities when 45 was running the debacle.

    1. @Armandhammer yes., And he’s right. It did start with Trump. And the children in trumps prisons actually came with parents. These new kids do not come with parents. That doesn’t excuse our present administration that has more than enough money to buy underwear and toothpaste.

  6. How has humanity become so disgusting towards other people especially the most disadvantaged?

  7. If the government has a contract and underwear are back ordered several months, then an all points bulletin should be made and people will come forward with money and underwear, as much as the kids need. But that contractor needs to be fired. The money they are making from the federal government is outrageous outrageous

  8. children or adults who illegally enter the country have no right to complain, they should have thought about that before crashing the border. at least they’re no longer suffering from the so-called terrible conditions where they came from.

  9. How are people trying to blame this on Trump ? The whistleblower is talking about the conditions of the migrant facility from April to June 2021 under Biden’s presidency.

  10. The Democrats lured the kids here with the candy of freedom & stuck them in prison. That’s just plain wrong & evil.
