On the heels of reports regarding the conditions inside migrant detention facilities, Time posted a video interview with an anonymous 12-year-old girl who opened up about the nearly two weeks she spent in a center in Texas.

“They gave us little food,” the little girl sys of her time at the facility. “They didn’t bathe [the children]. They treated us badly where we were. They were mean to us.”

She goes on to say that many of the children fell ill and didn’t receive proper medical care. “They said they’d take them to hospitals, but they wouldn’t take them,” she explained.
