Migrant family separations

Families with young children protest the separation of immigrant families with a sit-in last summer at the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington. Jacquelyn Martin/Associated Press file

I read the Tulsa World editorial about how the government isn't providing soap, toothbrushes, towels and clothes to migrant children ("U.S. withholding basic needs from migrant children immoral, indefensible," June 26).

The case the government made defending itself was made to a ruling from a California-based U.S. judge.

Temperatures of the facilities weren't controlled. The children slept on a concrete floor under bright lights with Mylar sheets.

Younger children were kept in caged areas with little running water.

Shame on the government and everyone involved.

These children did not enter the U.S. on their own.
