WASHINGTON — The poor treatment of migrant children at the hands of U.S. border agents in recent months extends beyond Texas to include allegations of sexual assault and retaliation for protests, according to dozens of accounts by children held in Arizona collected by government case managers and obtained by NBC News.

A 16-year-old Guatemalan boy held in Yuma, Arizona, said he and others in his cell complained about the taste of the water and food they were given. The Customs and Border Protection agents took the mats out of their cell in retaliation, forcing them to sleep on hard concrete.

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.

The girl said “she felt embarrassed as the officer was speaking in English to other officers and laughing” during the entire process, according to a report of her account.

The NBC report also stated that the illegal alien children “reported being denied a phone call, not being offered a shower, sleeping on concrete or outside with only a Mylar blanket, and feeling hungry before their 9 p.m. dinnertime.”

A 17-year-old boy from Guatemala reported having to sleep outside even though his clothes were wet from having recently crossed a river, likely the Colorado River.

Once he was transferred inside, the conditions were not much better. “He shared that there was not always space on the floor as there were too many people in the room. He further shared that there would be room available when someone would stand up,” his report stated.

    Lets bring 100 immigrants to your town and set them out. They would not have food nor shelter, just like when they entered the US .If they camped on your front yard what would you do?

    Watch California and find out.

    Yes, they do think we will baby sit them. For all the money this is costing us , seems that money could build something in their country, business, housing,(?).

    Thats why aoc went there. To coach them. Sick of this. I hate to say it but if I see a hispanic I wonder if they came illegally or legally. At work they stay in the bathroom slacking off..if rules are told they break them and then say they don’t understand english. They never flush and leave the door open in the stalls when they go. Can’t stand them.

    When I traveled to Mexico years ago, I hated the taste of the water there too. Actually it made me deathly ill. As for sleeping space, if they don’t like it, GO HOME. They have been sleeping on the ground all the while they were headed here now they want what, temperpedic mattresses? GO HOME. You were not invited here, we don’t want you here. If you can’t come legal, don’t frigging come. You don’t kick down my door and demand 5 star treatment. You knock, I decide if I want to let you in. You don’t invade by the hundreds of thousands then complain you are crowded. GO HOME where you can sleep in what ever you are use to, eat what you like, drink your own water, shower when you please. You were not invited, you are invading. Consider yourself lucky you eat at all. You could be baking in the desert sun or drowned on the river bank had you not been picked up and brought in by our border patrol. JUST GO HOME and your problems will cease as far as we are concerned.

    Liars and liars, they are being coached to tell lies, they can go back to their country as we don’t want you here.
    They are destroying this country and I’m sick of the whining that they don’t get this or that, well we have homeless on the streets that get nothing absolutely nothing while these illegals take and take.
    I don’t like them either as they use the people in this country as well as the Muslims, they need to stay in their own country and fight to make it better.
    It’s time for America to send them back.

    Whew! I was wondering how long this claim would take….. When nothing else works for the crying Democrats, they pull out the sex allegations…. no reasonable person believes this garbage. Y’all cried wolf too many times. Where is the video? Everyone would have recorded that. It doesn’t exist.
