House Oversight Committee Chair Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) called the treatment of migrant children at facilities on the U.S. border with Mexico “government-sponsored child abuse” in a news conference Thursday, according to the Dallas Morning News.

“They say they have all the supplies they need, and they say that all of the allegations of mistreatment are – and I quote – `unsubstantiated.’ We will not be blinded by what we see,” Cummings said Wednesday before a hearing on conditions in the facilities.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We have seen cases where the administration has deported parents without their children and still, to this day, have not reunited those families,” he added.  “This is government sponsored child abuse … on a grand scale.”

“Cummings, a Maryland Democrat who leads the House Oversight and Reform Committee, says everyone in the country should be able to agree that anyone in U.S. government custody should be treated humanely,” Time reported. “A surge in the number of migrants crossing the border has overwhelmed border facilities. The number of people crossing the border dropped in June, but still topped 100,000 people.”

    Where is the blame for the parents you idiot?
    If a parent here travelled 1,000 of miles with their child in the condition these illegals are what do you think Social Services would do?
    These parents don’t care about their children and are using the system to get what they want.
    Many of those illegals don’t have kids and were using others to get into the country.
    You Cummings are a POS as well as the rest of you Democrats that lie and lie.

    Mr. Cummings, YOU are part of the government! So why are you not supporting actions that would correct the immigration problems? We the people are not as stupid as you seem to think. BOTH parties are at fault here. A good share of the members serving in the House and Senate have been there for a LONG time but yet it keeps getting worse. When pointing fingers be sure to look where 3 fingers and a thumb are pointing. DO YOUR JOBS!
