Trump Administration says safe and sanitary doesn't mean you need soap and clean water.

Migrant children detained by the US government must have access to soap, toothpaste and other basic hygiene products, as well as edible food, clean water and places to sleep, a panel of judges has ruled.

The administration had contended that detained immigrant children, who are required to be provided with “safe and sanitary” conditions, didn’t need basic hygiene products.

The ninth circuit court of appeals in San Francisco tossed out the government’s challenge to a lower court’s findings that authorities had failed to provide safe and sanitary conditions for the children in line with a 1997 agreement widely known as the Flores settlement.

The government argued that authorities weren’t required to provide specific accommodations under the settlement, such as soap, and asked the panel to weigh in.

A Trump administration lawyer tried to argue the point in June, saying the agreement was vague and might not require that a toothbrush and soap be provided to children during brief stays in custody.

Why would this is okay? I'm sure Trump's children never went without "basic hygiene" products. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/aug/15/immigrant-children-soap-beds-trump-court?utm_term=RWRpdG9yaWFsX1VTTW9ybmluZ0JyaWVmaW5nLTE5MDgxNg%3D%3D&utm_source=esp&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=USMorningBriefing&CMP=usbriefing_email
