The Treatment of Migrants Likely ‘Meets the Definition of a Mass Atrocity’

Kate Cronin-Furman
NY Times
6/29/19

EXCERPT:

The debate over whether “concentration camps” is the right term for migrant detention centers on the southern border has drawn long-overdue attention to the American government’s dehumanizing treatment of defenseless children. A pediatrician who visited in June said the centers could be compared to “torture facilities.” Having studied mass atrocities for over a decade, I agree.

At least seven migrant children have died in United States custody since last year. The details reported by lawyers who visited a Customs and Border Protection facility in Clint, Tex., in June were shocking: children who had not bathed in weeks, toddlers without diapers, sick babies being cared for by other children. As a human rights lawyer and then as a political scientist, I have spoken to the victims of some of the worst things that human beings have ever done to each other, in places ranging from Cambodia to the Democratic Republic of the Congo to Sri Lanka. What’s happening at the border doesn’t match the scale of these horrors, but if, as appears to be the case, these harsh conditions have been intentionally inflicted on children as part a broader plan to deter others from migrating, then it meets the definition of a mass atrocity: a deliberate, systematic attack on civilians. And like past atrocities, it is being committed by a complex organizational structure made up of people at all different levels of involvement.

Thinking of what’s happening in this way gives us a repertoire of tools with which to fight the abuses, beyond the usual exhortations to call our representatives and donate to border charities.

Those of us who want to stop what’s happening need to think about all the different individuals playing a role in the systematic mistreatment of migrant children and how we can get them to stop participating. We should focus most on those who have less of a personal commitment to the abusive policies that are being carried out.

Testimony from trials and truth commissions has revealed that many atrocity perpetrators think of what they’re doing as they would think of any other day job. While the leaders who order atrocities may be acting out of strongly held ideological beliefs or political survival concerns, the so-called “foot soldiers” and the middle men and women are often just there for the paycheck.

This lack of personal investment means that these participants in atrocities can be much more susceptible to pressure than national leaders. Specifically, they are sensitive to social pressure, which has been shown to have played a huge role in atrocity commission and desistance in the Holocaust, Rwanda and elsewhere. The campaign to stop the abuses at the border should exploit this sensitivity and put social pressure on those involved in enforcing the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

Here is what that might look like:

The identities of the individual Customs and Border Protection agents who are physically separating children from their families and staffing the detention centers are not undiscoverable. Immigration lawyers have agent names; journalists reporting at the border have names, photos and even videos. These agents’ actions should be publicized, particularly in their home communities.

The NYT is now openly calling for the doxxing of law enforcement. Essentially they are calling for the murder of immigration officers and their spouses and children.

Nice even-handed coverage so typical of the New York Times. Funny how they neglected to mention the democrats' role in exacerbating the problems at the border. So much easier to blame Donald Trump, though. And last, comparing this debacle to the Holocaust is absolutely unspeakable and an insult to those victims who suffered and died.

I hope that anyone responsible for doxxing is criminally prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. If they're allowed to evade justice, the situation will surely escalate.

How about: “Stay out of places you don’t belong. Quit bringing your children into hazards and peril that the United States HAS NO CONTROL OVER.”?

eta: I thought this was a manufactured crisis? Why is the NYT even concerned about something that three months ago they said didn’t exist?

Let us hope so, and work toward that end.

Doxxing will only be bad when someone on the right does it to a leftist.

All without any help from the do nothing GOP who will be riding the free wave that they do not deserve.

The GOP are winning only because the left sucks so badly, not because of any effort or accomplishments of their own because they haven't done squat to help.

Just rename "children" to "fetuses" and see how quickly they change their tune.

Murder of officers, spouses and kids? Really?

"This is not an argument for doxxing — it’s about exposure of their participation in atrocities to audiences whose opinion they care about. The knowledge, for instance, that when you go to church on Sunday, your entire congregation will have seen you on TV ripping a child out of her father’s arms is a serious social cost to bear. The desire to avoid this kind of social shame may be enough to persuade some agents to quit and may hinder the recruitment of replacements. For those who won’t (or can’t) quit, it may induce them to treat the vulnerable individuals under their control more humanely."

Of course no one wants to hurt spouses and kids, right? Surely, no one but upstanding citizens will take part in this public shaming and it will ALL be in the form of people praying for the guards to change their behavior........right? Nobody in history has ever taken the suggestions of national leaders, writers, etc and gone to the extreme with it..... right?

Surely, no one will spit on them, kick them out of restaurants, get in their faces, send death threats, stalk their kids, take pictures of their kids and send it to them in the mail, etc...........because none of that has ever happened, has it?

"this is not an argument for doxxing" followed immediately by an argument for doxxing.


Revealing federal law enforcement officer's private details such as addresses is a crime for a reason. Releasing them will only lead to violence and attacks on them and their families, whether its the minor violence the left carries out with cement filled milkshakes and crowbars, or the more serious violence that gangs like to carry out. Gangs like MS-13 put hits out on immigration officers all time. Do you think assassinations would be easier to carry out if your buddies on the left start revealing their names and addresses? Come on, you can't possibly be this ignorant.

So, do you support the crime that this author is calling for?

I seem to have missed your comments on the threads about the reporter being beaten up, Antifa threatens acid attacks, and the restaurant witch calling for throwing conservatives out of restaurants. Could you point them out to me? <_<

Mass atrocity is abortion, I think more lives are destroyed by abortion than any other deaths.

At least 7 children in over a year have died? That could qualify any hospital or school as a place of torture. In fact an American public school is more of a mass atrocity site compared to the Border control detention centers. The problem? The inmates at these school systems where animal like kids torment other kids.
