In the recent political climate, immigrant children of all ages are more frequently separated from their parents and relocated in different detention facilities. On many occasions, these facilities are often overpopulated and inhabitable, and children are forced to sleep together in inhumane conditions—replacing the comfort of their homes with a cell, the warmth of a blanket with a Mylar sheet, and the support of their parents and loved ones with the unified and collective fear of others experiencing the same thing.
