DOJ Inspector General Finds No Evidence of Cruel Treatment for Migrant Children

By Steve Neavling

Rumors of substandard treatment of migrant children caught crossing the border have been overstated, according to federal inspectors.

The Arizona Republic reports that no evidence was found of children being forced to sleep in freezing-col holding cells without blankets.

The government was unable to confirm other reports, including that toilets ere filthy and food and drinking water was hard to come by.

Several groups, including the ACLU and National Immigrant Justice Center, launched numerous complaints about the conditions.

But investigators couldn’t substantiate those conditions, according to Homeland Security’s Inspector General.
