Fortunately, a judge ruled that the federal government can no longer give psychotropic medictions to children without consent, according to a recent article in the Washington Post, "Trump administration must stop giving psychotropic drugs to migrant children without consent, judge rules."
This shows how vulnerable children or individuals with special needs are when there is no one around to advocate for them.
I remember when I was a child my grandparents had a parrot, Columbus, and they let the bird fly all over the apartment. One day I asked my grandmother, "Why you don't put the bird in a cage?" She replied, "Would you like it if somebody put you in a cage?" So not only were these children put in a physical cage, apparently they were also locked in a chemical cage.
