From your article: “Using military bases in this way is not new. In 2014, the Obama Administration placed around 7,700 migrant children on bases in Texas, California and Oklahoma – including Fort Sill.” https://t.co/ZBG0eabggr

Fort Sill will detain 1,400 children to help house a record number of minors. The Trump administration already operates 168 facilities + programs in 23 states. Health and Human Services reports 40,900 children in custody. 57% increase from last year. https://t.co/Bm9pNkCjT8

"Fort Sill, a 150-yr-old installation once used to set up internment camps for Japanese-Americans during WWII, has been selected to detain 1,400 children until they can be given to an adult relative, according to the U.S. Dept of Health & Human Services." https://t.co/Yh9DIcJzHu

1942: Fort Sill in Oklahoma holds 700 Japanese-Americans interned during World War II under a racist executive order. 2019: Fort Sill in Oklahoma holds 1,400 migrant children kidnapped from their families by DHS at the border under a racist president. https://t.co/XNhBNVsKIP

History does not repeat but it does often rhyme: Fort Sill began as a prison for Native Americans, became a concentration camp for Japanese Americans during WWII, and now is being used to hold migrant children. https://t.co/KcJ1hKJhhp

The Trump Administration is using an Army base once used as a Japanese-American internment camp to hold immigrant children in its custody after running out of room at government shelters. #Trump41 https://t.co/a8UY7hoM4m

Families like mine still bear scars from the suffering they underwent in Japanese internment. It’s immoral for our government to be doing this to children seeking asylum. Internment was a dark time in our history — we can't allow history to repeat itself. https://t.co/yguBv0gmWv

The facility at Fort Sill near Lawton, Oklahoma, would be capable of holding 1,400 kids. Fort Sill previously served as a temporary emergency shelter for unaccompanied children in 2014 as a result of a migration surge at that time. https://t.co/Xzvxqw9MkO

This is horrifying +. Fort Sill was run by Department of Justice, not the War Relocation Authority. Too complicated for a tweet other than to say Sill, Crystal City, & Fort Missoula were war prisons for men suspected of espionage not the more common family internment camps. https://t.co/PyEgjhs58G

@theLisaAlso @CharlesMBlow Suggest we look at Obama's reaction to the problem to figure out just how evil we can be. After all, he kept children at Fort Sill in 2014. Long before Trump became president.

@CharlesPPierce The ghosts of Warm Springs and Chiricahua Apache haunt Fort Sill as well. It was built for those held prisoner there 1886-1914. Geronimo is buried there.

@veekmo Fitness of military facilities is always a concern. Perhaps we should ask the children who were kept at Fort Sill in 2014 under Obama whether the facilities were sufficient.
