Migrant Children Removed From ‘Appalling’ Border Patrol Facility
Migrant Children Removed From 'Appalling’ Border Patrol Facility The Department of Homeland Security has confirmed that almost 300 migrants children were removed from a facility in El Paso, Texas, due to inhuman conditions. These conditions were uncovered by a group of attorneys that visited the Clint Border Patrol station and interviewed over 60 children. They discovered that children as young as two-years-old had been living for weeks without access to showers, medical care and proper food. Elora Mukherjee, a member of the attorney group, said she’d never witnessed such “appalling” conditions.
