According to Eustachewich, “There are no toys or books in the 77,000-square-foot facility, which a Department of Homeland Security official called the ‘epicenter’ of the Trump administration’s controversial immigration policy, according to NBC”.

Imagine having a child and just wanting the best for them only for them to end up in a cage with twenty other children they do not even know. The separation of families is detrimental to both child, and parent. According to Vox “one Honduran man killed himself in a detention cell after his child was taken from him” (Lind). This man was under so much stress and uncertainty about his child that he decided to take his own life.
