In Oklahoma, Republican Senator Jim Inhofe said Thursday that plans to jail 1,600 migrant children at the Fort Sill U.S. Army base have been halted. Inhofe’s announcement came just days after hundreds of protesters shut down the entrance to Fort Sill as part of a series of protests against Republican Governor Kevin Stitt’s efforts to imprison migrant children there. Fort Sill was used during World War II to incarcerate Japanese Americans. It was also once a prison for Native Americans.
