Meanwhile, a new investigation by Reveal shows taxpayers have paid more than $1.5 billion in the last four years to companies operating immigrant youth detention centers that faced accusations of serious lapses in care. In many of the cases, the government kept placing children with the companies even after serious allegations had been made. Reveal also reports that some children held at Shiloh Treatment Center near Houston, Texas, were restrained and injected with powerful anti-psychotic drugs against their will, making them dizzy, listless, obese and even incapacitated.
