Outrage grows as former Chief of Staff John Kelly joins board of company that detains migrant children

Former White House chief of staff has decided to cash in on his name by joining the board of a company that operates the largest shelter for unaccompanied migrant children who come to the United States, according to CBS News:

“Kelly joined the board of Caliburn International, the company confirmed to CBS on Friday. Caliburn is the parent company of Comprehensive Health Services, which operates a shelter for migrant children in Florida and three others in Texas.”

Before he became chief of staff, Kelly was head of the Department of Homeland Security and helped formulate and implement the harsh immigration policies of the Trump administration, including plans to separate migrant children from their parents and house them in internment camps reminiscent of the ones used to imprison Japanese-Americans during the Second World War.

Reaction to Kelly’s willingness to profit off the suffering of immigrant children was immediate and righteously harsh:

Some may say that due to his military service, John Kelly is an honorable man. He just proved otherwise.
