HHS to Triple Size of Texas Tent Camp for Migrant Children

HeadlineSep 12, 2018

The Health and Human Services Department says it will triple the size of the tent camp where migrant children are imprisoned in the desert outside El Paso, Texas.

Officials say they are now expanding it to contain 3,800 beds for migrant children.
