Title
Have you ever hated the feeling of being alone? Currently there are multiple children feeling immense despair due to the prolonged absence of their parents. As of October 12th, 2018 there are still 250 children separated from their parents according to the Washington Post. The reason behind the separation is fueled by The Department of Homeland Security and their policy on prosecuting all immigrants; which is leading to an increase of captured and detained immigrants and their children. As stated, the inhumane separation of a child from their parent is a trauma that  increases anxiety and depression, a state of mind no child should be in.

Children of all ages are suffering in inhumane facilities due to our mistake. That's why many bystanders today are concluding in the abolishment of this policy even with the unintended or intended consequence of this policy.
How inhumane are the facilities? What are the children's  living conditions? As of recently many articles have addressed this issue. One specifically being The Cut. “Reports have begun to emerge of horrifying conditions in these detention centers, several of which have been compared to jails” (Arnold, “What to Know About the Detention Centers for Immigrant Children”). This problem has been concluded as a jail. A practice that should never be instated  even for a free,democratic society like the U.S. Not to over exaggerate my opinions but other cities have established it as hell like community. Specifically AP news “They have spoken out loud and clear, and what they’ve said is they are experiencing enforced hunger, enforced dehydration,...
