“I’ll release the captured children if you give me $ 30 billion for me to build a border wall that I once promised you Mexico would pay for.”

It is a golden age to “Be Best” at a Laura Ingraham “summer camp”.

Missing DHS/HHS children now reach the same numbers as Puerto Rico death toll.

Federal officials acknowledged last month that nearly 1,500 unaccompanied minors arrived on the southern border alone without their parents and were placed with sponsors who did not keep in touch with federal officials, but those numbers were only a snapshot of a three- month period during the last fiscal year.

“There is a lot more,” said a field specialist who worked in the Office of Refugee Resettlement until earlier this year and was tasked with reaching out to sponsors and children to check on their well-being. “You can bet that the numbers are higher. It doesn’t really give you a real picture.”

The new estimate comes as backlash widens over President Donald Trump’s’ decision to separate parents and children. Advocates argue the growing numbers of unaccounted children should be expected as families and sponsors become more fearful of federal officials that is now using information from government social workers to run immigration checks and, in some cases, target sponsors, including parents and family members, for removal.

The stocks of the two biggest private prison operators — CoreCivic (formerly know as Corrections Corp. of America) and Geo Group — have doubled since election day. CoreCivic (CXW) is up 140% since Trump won in November; Geo Group (GEO) has risen 98%.

For all the talk about how good Trump has been for big banks like Goldman Sachs, he’s been even better for private prison investors.

The reason private prisons are back in vogue is simple: Trump has made sweeping promises to crack down on crime and illegal immigration. Wall Street calculated quickly that Trump’s rhetoric is likely to translate into more people behind bars. And that means more profits for private prisons.

Imagine being 10 years old, separated from your mother or father, not understanding why, and being taken to a hulking, windowless building filled with 1,500 other kids you’ve never met.
You’re allowed to make two phone calls a week — one of which hopefully is to a detained parent now thousands of miles The kids we saw, for the most part, looked content. No crying, no one slouched in a corner alone. But this was also a media tour, and journalists weren’t allowed to interview any of the children. Who knows what happens when the lights go out and they’re left alone with their thoughts? abcnews.go.com/…
