(Reuters) - Immigrant children are being routinely and forcibly given a range of psychotropic drugs at U.S. government-funded youth shelters to manage their trauma after being detained and in some cases separated from parents, according to a lawsuit.
Children held at facilities such as the Shiloh Treatment Center in Texas are almost certain to be administered the drugs, irrespective of their condition, and without their parents' consent, according to the lawsuit filed by the Los Angeles-based Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law.
The Shiloh center, which specializes in services for children and youths with behavioral and emotional problems, did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
The lawsuit was filed on April 16, days after the introduction of the Trump Administration's "zero tolerance" policy to separate children from parents who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. Trump abandoned the policy on Wednesday.
"If youre in Shiloh then its almost certain you are on these medications. So if any child were placed in Shiloh after being separated from a parent, then theyre almost certainly on psychotropics," said Carlos Holguin, a lawyer representing the Center for Human Rights & Constitutional Law.
Officials at the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), which oversees such centers, were not immediately available for comment.

They want a totally open border to all comers.
They ONLY solution is a physical wall that prevents entry. With armed guards atop it.
Headline option #1: “Traumatized migrant children denied medical care by heartless Trump Admin.”
Headline option #2: “Traumatized migrant children FORCED to take medicine by heartless Trump Admin.”
These people are psychotic...they will stop at nothing to destroy Trump. I do not for the life of me understand how this war can be allowed to continue. It’s got to stop, this is becoming truly treasonous.
Wonder who has the contract to provide that stuff?
“Wonder who has the contract to provide that stuff?”
They are no more drugged than American kids. Or, if they are, it’s because they need it.
As for most Americans, we just need them the eff out of here.
“Its got to stop, this is becoming truly treasonous.”
Nay, it must escalate tremendously before it stops.
A new Civil War is emerging. And that’s a good thing.
The crazy Left are throwing everything they have at this and hoping something will stick ,LOL
I hope you’re right about it being a good thing.
Don’t you see?
The left wants to pump head meds into red blooded American youth to make them docile sheeple for the feral yutes from down under to overpower.
Hey Reuters - why don’t you take care of your own country? You’ve got Tommy Robinson in JAIL for daring to speak his mind; you’ve got mosques galore where they talk about killing you Brits; you’ve got Muzzies knifing folks and running over them. But you want to bad mouth OUR country? hahaha, snort/
There is NO PROOF in this article that drugs are being given———— Reuters and Yahoo are a disgrace.
IF true, how long before we learn Obama was doing the same thing?
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes."
The intend damage is done.
The Brutish commies are taking a beating over Tommy Robinson, so they have to distract from it some how..
Psychotropic drugs? It’s ok to give them to our school age children but bad for illegal children in protective custody. Got it. :(
They are not certain this is happening and they file a lawsuit? Idiots looking for publicity and a "news" article.
I'm suspicious as there are no doctors mentioned nor are there any gvt officials mentioned. No provable evidence is presented.
...just like public school children...
