The Salt Lake Tribune editorial board: Yes, they are concentration camps
Human Rights

Don't know if many caught this from the largest paper in Utah but it is worth reading……

The Salt Lake Tribune delivers a devastating editorial that agrees with Rep Ocasio Cortez's claims about how along the southern border of the US we have set up concentration camps.

The editorial goes on further to show the history of how the conversation we have had completely misses the boat about what is going on is more important then what we are calling it. Plus they also note the history of how the camps developed in Germany, from the editorial,

It worked its way up, from nasty political speeches (check) to politicians seeking and gaining power with promises to protect the purity of the nation from foreign invasion (check) to denying basic human rights and decency to people of an unfavored class (check).

The references to (check) are indicating things that have already occurred. The Tribune also goes into how morally bankrupt we are to be taking no action from the multiple reports of the lack of decency we have towards these people who want nothing more than a better life.

I strongly suggest you read it for yourself  it is a powerful editorial in my opinion.

You should also read it for how it takes both of its US Senators to task for the lack of action in this matter, the comparison of Romney's push for more Everify to solve the problem is,

kind of like bringing a roll of paper towels to a hurricane.

Like I said,  it's a must read.

It should be noted that the Tribune is owned by the Huntsman Family Investment LLC and the Tribune president is Paul Huntsman who is the brother of current Us Ambassador to Russia John Huntsman Jr. and the son of noted industrialist Jon Huntsman Sr. a huge financial heavy weight in GOP circles.
