The article goes on to state the following:
“A 15-year-old girl from Honduras described a large, bearded officer putting his hands inside her bra, pulling down her underwear and groping her as part of what was meant to be a routine pat-down in front of other immigrants and officers,” NBC reports. “A 17-year-old boy from Honduras said officers would scold detained children when they would get close to a window, and would sometimes call them ‘puto,’ an offensive term in Spanish, while they were giving orders.”
A new report from @NBCNews details inhumane treatment of migrant children at Arizona border stations.
Allegations of sexual assault, retaliation by @CBP officers, overcrowding, lack of showers, clean clothes or space to sleep.
The top leadership at border patrol must be fired. https://t.co/Vsk7AkwYen
