Reporters Allowed to See What’s Happening at Border
DONNA, Texas (AP) — The Biden administration for the first time has allowed journalists inside its main border detention facility for migrant children. A tour Tuesday revealed a severely overcrowded tent structure where more than 4,000 migrants were crammed into a space intended for 250 and the youngest ones are kept in a large playpen with mats on the floor for sleeping. With thousands of children and families arriving at the U.S. in recent weeks and packing facilities, President Joe Biden has been under pressure to bring more transparency to the process. More than 4,100 people were being housed on the property Tuesday in Donna, Texas. Most were unaccompanied children.
