Ibji’s testimony to displaced mothers was harsh, she said, as she was also a mother of two, according to CBS.
“Here are stories of children being thrown into the fire, then forcing the mother to watch her, and then leaving her to live with the memory of watching her child burn.”
“Taking care of what is happening is just a form of humanity,” she concludes. “A child who is burned is as valuable and beautiful as a child here in America.”

Many videos were posted on social networks in which the Rohingya expressed their refusal to return, some of whom threatened to commit suicide to return to the land where they were witnesses to the killing of family members.
