Frenzied media blame Trump for Obama's drugging of immigrant kids

[www.washingtonexaminer.com]

New reporting has some calling for President Trump to be sent to the Hague for crimes against humanity.

An investigation by the journalists at Reveal details how immigrant children in U.S. custody are separated from their parents by government contractors and forcibly injected with powerful psychiatric drugs. It is horrific and truly inexcusable, which is why commentators are getting even more furious at Trump. But that anger is misdirected.

The practice did not begin under the watch of the Trump administration, and there is no evidence whatsoever that Trump had anything to do with it. Readers won’t realize that from reading the story though, which may be why liberal activists have rushed to blame Trump for the horrific acts that happened under President Obama.

Journalists Matt Smith and Aura Bogado do an excellent job detailing the abuse that occurred at Shiloh Treatment Center, a government contractor just south of Houston. It was a nightmare for immigrant children separated from their parents. Staff forced kids to choke down a cocktail of psychiatric medications, and if they refused or acted out, staff would pin them down and inject them with medication.

According to a lawsuit, which makes up the basis of the report, children at the Shiloh Treatment Center were forced into a medically induced and dangerous stupor. One was prescribed antipsychotic drugs and seizure meds while also being forced to stomach antidepressants, cognition enhancers, and nerve pain medication. Another was so drowsy, she fell down and hit her head so often she had to be put in a wheelchair.

The reporting is detailed and horrific, but the story creates a fake villain. The first words of the piece are "President Donald Trump." The article blames Trump and his current zero tolerance policy on immigration for creating “a zombie army of children.” That is misleading at best.

Three of the four children cited in the report were drugged during the Obama administration. According to federal court filings, only one occurred while Trump was actually president. The other three happened in 2016. That timing is left out of the story, which, after opening with Trump's policies, never mentions the years of the specific incidents of mistreatment.

The writers do mention that Shiloh's contract and its problems predate Trump, though, reporting that Rep Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, started calling for the Shiloh Center to be closed as early as 2014.

Still, the reader is left to believe that the drugging occurred under Trump. In fact, the story that begins with Trump's name never mentions Obama's. They sully otherwise excellent reporting with partisan bias. Searching for a hook, presumably, they pin the blame on the current president instead. Sensational and viral, it’s created plenty of outrage.

Rodger Hodge, deputy editor of the Intercept, quips that its “Trumpian child care.”

Trumpian child care: inject immigrant children with psychotropic drugs to make them settle down and stop crying. This was before zero tolerance. [t.co]

Amy Siskind, president of the liberal New Agenda, demands accountability:

The stories of mistreatment by random contractors awarded $$$ and migrants from the Trump regime is just starting to come out. They must be held accountable!
"Children held at the Shiloh Treatment Center described being held down and injected."

Shame on the Texas Tribune writers for trying to mislead readers. This information had to have been lifted directly from the 2014 investigative piece published by the Houston Chronicle. Obama was president in 2014 and no one held him or his administration's resettlement program accountable for Shiloh and other similar facilities. I am disgusted by this blatantly political hack job. You don't care about children, you just care about bashing your political opponents.

**********

Who could blame either of them? The Reveal story makes the blood boil by pointing out a legitimate and horrific problem. It just doesn’t tell the entire truth, and unfortunately that’s becoming a trend. Even the Associated Press is making questionable editorial decisions to get the clicks.

An AP report details allegations of similar treatment of immigrant teenagers at a Virginia center. The children were thrown naked into solitary confinement. The children were handcuffed and beaten. The children were strapped to chairs and choked with plastic bags.

Pointing out that the youngest was just 14 years old, Kelly Weill of the Daily Beast correctly called it “Abu Ghraib” for eighth graders. Of course, Weill and the thousands who retweeted her did not mention when the alleged abuse occurred. Turns out that happened under the last administration’s watch in 2015 and 2016. And again, Obama wasn't mentioned .

It was up to readers who actually finished the entire piece to point out these facts:

21

That's the number of paragraphs you have to read into this story before being informed this was the Obama-era (2015-2016).


7

That's the number of times Trump is mentioned.

0

That's the number of times Obama is mentioned.

Reporters should remember that when filing their stories, because while it is heroic to expose evil and report wrongdoing, it is opportunism to use the suffering of children to level partisan attacks.

Newsweek article about Obama Drugging Illegal Alien Children - the lawsuit -

MIGRANT CHILDREN SEPARATED FROM PARENTS AT BORDER WERE FORCIBLY DRUGGED: LAWSUIT

[www.newsweek.com]

Immigrant children who were detained near Houston, and in some cases separated from their parents at the border, were forced by authorities to take a range of psychotropic drugs in a heavy-handed attempt to manage their trauma, according to a lawsuit made public on Wednesday.

Kids detained at Shiloh Treatment Center in Texas are almost certain to be administered the drugs, irrespective of their condition, and without their parents’ consent, alleged the lawsuit filed by the Los Angeles-based Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law on April 16. The Shiloh Treatment Center specializes in services for youths with behavioural and emotional problems.


"The supervisor told me I was going to get a medication injection to calm me down," a child who was held at the facility told attorneys, reported Reveal News. "Two staff grabbed me, and the doctor gave me the injection despite my objection and left me there on the bed."

“If you’re in Shiloh then it’s almost certain you are on these medications. So if any child were placed in Shiloh after being separated from a parent, then they’re almost certainly on psychotropics,” said Carlos Holguin, a lawyer representing the Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law.

The court document alleges that children who refused to take the drugs were held down and given injections. It also said some workers tricked the children into believing the drugs were vitamins. “The staff told me that some of the pills are vitamins because they think I need to gain weight. The vitamins changed about two times, and each time I feel different,” one child said, according to the lawsuit.

Some children held at Shiloh reported being given up to nine different pills in the morning and six in the evening, including antipsychotic drugs, antidepressants, Parkinson’s Disease medication and seizure medications. They were told they would remain detained if they refused drugs, the lawsuit said. Children also said that after taking the drugs, they experienced side effects that rendered them fatigued and incapable of walking.

Taking multiple psychotropic drugs at the same time can seriously injure children, according to the filing, which highlights the need for oversight to prevent medications being used as “chemical straight jackets,” rather than treat actual medical needs.

Officials at the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), which oversees such centers, were not immediately available when Reuters reached out for comment. ORR-run centers unilaterally administer the drugs to children in disregard of laws in Texas and other states that require either a parent’s consent or a court order, the filing said. The lawsuit seeks a shift in ORR policies to comply with state laws and prevent the prolonged detention of children.

One mother said neither she nor any other family member had been consulted about medication given to her daughter, even though Shiloh had their contact details. Another mother said her daughter received such powerful anti-anxiety medications she collapsed several times, according to the filing.

The lawsuit was filed only days after the introduction of the Trump Administration’s “zero tolerance” policy to separate children from parents who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. Trump rowed back on the policy on Wednesday, signing an executive order allowing for families to be detained together—indefinitely.
